Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Butter or margarine, softened
¼ cup Packed light brown sugar
¼ cup Solid vegetable shortening
1 large Egg yolk
½ teaspoon Vanilla
⅛ teaspoon Salt
1 cup All-purpose flour
2 tablespoons Sugar
4 ounces Light cream cheese, softened

Heat oven to 350. Have ready a cookie sheet and a flat serving plate or a flat serving board.

Crust: Put butter, sugar, shortening, egg yolk, vanilla and salt into a medium bowl or food processor. Stir or pulse to mix well. Add flour and stir or pulse until well blended. Remove processor blade.

Put a 12-inch square of foil on work surface and sprinkle lightly with flour. Gather dough into a ball and place in center of foil. With a floured rolling pin, roll dough to a 9 - 9½-inch circle. Put a 9-inch cake pan or plate on the dough and cut around it with a knife to trim the crust to an even 9 inches.

Fold up about ½ inch dough around edge to form a rim. Crimp rim with fingers. Slide foil onto a cookie sheet. Prick bottom of dough all over with a fork. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes on cookie sheet, then slide foil onto a cooling rack. Let cookie cool completely.

NO MORE THAN 30 MINUTES BEFORE SERVING: Slide cookie from foil onto serving plate. Stir sugar into cream cheese just until well blended. Spread over crust, top with fruit and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar.
