1/2 cup apricot preserves
3 tablespoons flour
4 cups peaches thinly sliced peeled fresh
2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon lemon juice fresh
* Part two.
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter real, chilled
4 ounces cream cheese
1 egg white slightly beaten


Heat oven to 375° F. In blender or food processor, combine 1/4 cup apricot preserves and flour. Spread mixture on bottom and sides of crust. In crust arrange peach slices in circular pattern (double layers will be needed). In blender or food processor combine remaining 1/4 cup preserves, water, and lemon juice. Carefully brush over peaches with feather brush. Place in oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until peaches are tender when pierced with a fork. Tart is best eaten shortly after baking or within a few hours.

* To peel peaches, drop fruit into boiling water for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove fruit, place in cold water, and skins will peel away easily.

Fold in half, then half again lay in pan, unfold, and press into bottom and sides of pan. Trim any overhanging pastry. Crimp edges, brush bottom and sides with egg white, and put in freezer for 1/2 hour before baking. Bake in a preheated 400° F oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden in color. Cool before filling.
