Yields: 8 servings

• 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
• 1/2 cup unsalted butter
• 1/2 cup cream cheese
• 2 large apples, peeled and thinly sliced
• 1 pear, peeled and thinly sliced
• 1/3 cup brown sugar
• 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
• 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
• 1/4 tsp. cardamom1/4 c. orange juice
• 1 1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
• 1/2 c. apricot jam

Rub the butter and cream cheese into the flour. The mixture will be able to form a ball. Shape as such and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for one hour.

Preheat oven to 375. Roll pastry onto a lightly floured surface to a 10-inch circle. Place into an 8-inch pie pan, an 8-inch tart pan or just place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Set aside.

Toss the fruit with the spices, sugar, cornstarch and orange juice. Arrange decoratively in the center of the crust. If using a cookie sheet (not the pie pan or tart pan) leave a 2-inch rim. Fold this over.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and spread apricot jam over the top.
