KOO Peaches and Cream Raspberry Tart

Serves 8


Shortbread Crust:

  • 250g salted butter, softened
  • 480g (2 cups) Golden Cloud Cake Wheat Flour 100g (½ cup) icing sugar


  • 125ml (½ cup) fresh cream
  • 2 tubs (250g) plain cream cheese, softened

  1. Preheat oven to 180º C.

  3. In a mixing bowl beat fresh cream until soft peaks form. Set aside.
  4. In another bowl, beat cream cheese and caster sugar until smooth. Stir in the orange juice and vanilla essence. Fold in the whipped cream.
  5. Spread creamed mixture over the shortbread crust, refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Arrange peaches on top and decorate with glace cherries.
  6. In a small saucepan, combine apricot jam and honey. Heat until melted. Brush over the fruit and the topping. Keep in the refrigerator until serving time.
