  • Invert cooled crust onto baking sheet; remove foil. Place serving platter over inverted crust; invert platter and crust together.

  • In a medium bowl beat cream cheese, amaretto, and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Stir in the almonds. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over top of the sugar cookie crust, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges uncovered. Top with assorted fresh fruit. If desired, drizzle with honey.

*Tip:

If desired, substitute 1/4 cup milk and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract for the amaretto.
