Press pastry into 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Freeze for 15 minutes, or refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until firm.

Line pie shell with foil; fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake the tart in the bottom third of a 400°F oven for 15 minutes. Remove weights and foil. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes longer or until light brown. Transfer to rack; let cool.

In large bowl, beat Fromage Blanc until smooth. Beat in sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, scraping down bowl occasionally. Beat in cream, orange rind, and vanilla. Scrape into tart shell. Sprinkle with raspberries. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Bake on baking sheet in centre of 325°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until centre no longer jiggles when shaken. Let cool on rack. Refrigerate until chilled and firm, 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Cover with waxed paper; refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
