Servings: 8 servings
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar (confectioners' sugar)
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter softened, but into 1 Tablespoon chunks
- 1 orange
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1/2 cup sugar (granulated)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries (plus more for decorating)
- 1/3 cup white chocolate chips (plus more for decorating)
Zest the orange. You need two teaspoons of zest total. Set aside as you can use the orange segments to decorate with.
Preheat oven to 350F.
Using a food processor, combine the powdered sugar, flour, butter, and 1 teaspoon of orange zest. Blend just until the mixture forms a ball.
Press the dough into the sides and bottom of a 9-10 inch tart pan. Pat to make the crust even.
Bake the crust until it is just starting to lightly brown, approximately 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
Make the filling by adding the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and additional 1 teaspoon orange zest in a small bowl. Beat until smooth. Mix in the dried cranberries and white chocolate chips.
When the crust is cooled, spoon the cream cheese mixture into the tart shell and spread out evenly. It is important that the crust is cool so that the filling does not melt from the heat.
Decorate with additional dried cranberries, white chocolate, orange zest, and orange segments as desired. Chill until ready to serve.
