Fold dough in half and lift, centering over a 10 inch tart pan with removable bottom. Place dough in pan and unfold, and gently press it evenly into bottom and sides of pan. Create a lip at top by pressing dough between flutes of pan with your fingers as you pinch dough off at the edge. Then, for an even crust, roll a rolling pin across the top. Fill tart pan with parchment paper and then with dried beans, rice, or pie weights. Bake 10 minutes until partially set, remove parchment and weights, and return to oven for another 1015 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool on a rack.

Working from the outside in, construct concentric circles of fruit in a cheerful design on top of the cream. Lightly brush top of fruit with jam glaze.
