Using puff pastry shells allows you to make these bakery-style desserts in under an hour.  The shells are filled with a silky orange cream that's topped with fresh fruit...delicious!


1 pkg. (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 tbsp. sugar
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons grated orange zest
1 cup thawed frozen whipped topping
2 packages (10 ounces each ) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Shells, prepared according to package directions
6 strawberries, cut in half
3 peeled orange slice, cut in quarters
1 kiwi, peeled and cut into 12 pieces
1/2 cup apricot preserves, warmed


Beat the cream cheese, sugar, orange juice and orange zest in a medium bowl with a fork or whisk until the mixture is smooth. Fold in the whipped topping.

Spoon about 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture into each pastry shell. Divide the fruit among the filled pastry shells. Brush the fruit with the preserves.
