Fold into quarters. Flour tart pan lightly. Unfold dough and press into
tart pan. Trim edge even with top of rim. Prick bottom and sides thoroughly
with fork 50 times to prevent shrinkage. Cover edge with double layer of
foil to prevent over browning. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly
browned. Cool to room temperature. To make cream cheese filling: Combine
cream cheese, condensed milk, powdered sugar and lemon juice in small bowl.

syrup in medium saucepan. Cook and stir on medium heat until mixture is
thickened and clear. Remove from heat. Stir in butter, lemon juice and
salt. Transfer to bowl. Cool to room temperature. Spoon over cheese
filling. To make topping: Sprinkle nuts over fruit filling in lattice
fashion. To garnish: Combine powdered sugar, shortening, vanilla, butter
flavoring and 3 tablespoons cream in medium bowl. Beat until smooth, adding
more cream, if needed, for desired consistency. Spoon into decorator bag
fitted with desired tip. Form decorative border around edge of tart.
Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours. Remove rim. Cut into servings. Refrigerate
leftovers. Notes: Use 9-inch pie plate if tart pan is unavailable. If tart
is refrigerated longer than 2 hours, let stand at room temperature for a
few minutes before serving. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
