Spoon mixture into a medium bowl; cool. Cover and chill for at least 6 hours or overnight (the mixture will thicken as it cools).

Bake at 350° for 18 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Combine cream cheese and juice in a medium bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Spread evenly over prepared crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border.

Spread Pineapple Curd over cream cheese mixture.

Cut into squares. Arrange sliced strawberries and kiwifruit on top of the curd on each square.

Serve immediately.
