until it is golden. Let the crust cool

Make the filling: In a food processor blend together the
cream cheese, confectioner's sugar, vanilla and Grand Marnier until mixture is smooth.
In a well-chilled bowl beat the cream with an electric mixer until it just
peaks, whisk the cream cheese mixture gently into the whipped cream, and spoon the filling
into the crust, smoothing the top. Arrange the berries decoratively on the filling,
transfer the tart to a serving plate, and
chill it, covered loosely, until serving time.
The tart may be made 6 hours
