1. Thaw Puff Pastry according to package directions. (Preheat oven to 400F/204C)
2. On a floured surface, roll out one sheet into a thin rectangle (9×13in). With a fork, gently perforate the pastry to prevent it from ballooning up.
2. Bake for 10 -15 minutes until evenly golden brown. Keep aside to cool.
3. For the filling, add Cream Cheese, Sugar and Vanilla in a bowl. Mix until sugar is completely dissolved. Keep aside.
4. For the glaze, add all ingredients (except the Orange Zest) in a pan on medium heat. Whisk constantly until the mixture comes to a boil. Keep whisking for 1-2 minutes until the sauce thickens.
5. Remove from the heat and add in Orange Zest. Keep aside to cool.
6. When everything has cooled, spread the Cream Cheese mixture evenly on the Puff Pastry.
7. Arrange all the fruits so that every piece has a little of each fruit.
8. With a pastry brush, cover the entire tart with the glaze.
9. Chill for 1-2 hours before cutting and serving.
