      1/4  c             packed light brown sugar
      1/4  c             solid vegetable shortening
    1      lg            egg yolk
      1/2  tsp           vanilla
      1/8  tsp           salt
    1      c             all-purpose flour
                         Cream Cheese Filling:

    4      oz            light cream cheese -- softened
    3      c             mixed fruit and berries

 Heat oven to 350.  Have ready a cookie sheet and a flat serving plate or
 a flat serving board.
 
 Crust:  Put butter, sugar, shortening, egg yolk, vanilla and salt into a
 medium bowl or food processor.  Stir or pulse to mix well.  Add flour
 and stir or pulse until well blended.  Remove processor blade.
 
 Put a 12-inch square of foil on work surface and sprinkle lightly with
 flour.  Gather dough into a ball and place in center of foil.  With a
 floured rolling pin, roll dough to a 9 - 9 1/2-inch circle.  Put a
 9-inch cake pan or plate on the dough and cut around it with a knife to
 trim the crust to an even 9 inches.
 
 Fold up about 1/2 inch dough around edge to form a rim.  Crimp rim with
 fingers.  Slide foil onto a cookie sheet.  Prick bottom of dough all
 over with a fork.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool 10
 minutes on cookie sheet, then slide foil onto a cooling rack.  Let
 cookie cool completely.
 
 NO MORE THAN 30 MINUTES BEFORE SERVING:  Slide cookie from foil onto
 serving plate.  Stir sugar into cream cheese just until well blended.
 Spread over crust, top with fruit and sprinkle with confectioner’s
 sugar.
