Recipe

Honeyed Yogurt + Berry Tart
 
This Berry Tart is the ultimate Summer dessert. Perfectly balanced between sweet and tart, and so fresh with all the seasonal berries. Recipe adapted from Food and Wine, the graham cracker crust is spiced with just a hint of crystallized ginger (you could add more but my family likes just a hint of flavor; you could also skip the ginger and it still tastes great) and the yogurt filling is blended with honey and lemon juice for the perfect sweet tart taste. Made with Schar Honeygrams. Originally sponsored by Schar.

  • 2 cups plus 2½ tablespoons of graham cracker crumbs, made with Schar Honeygrams. (We used approximately 1½ boxes of Schar Honeygrams pulsed in a food processor to make the graham cracker crumbs)

  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 large egg white
Filling
  • 3 cups Greek-style nonfat yogurt, drained at least 8 hours, preferably overnight (you want to reduce the water content, so drain in a cheese cloth and strainer)

  • 3 tsp fresh lemon juice
Berry Topping
  • Approximately 1½ cups assorted fresh berries
Instructions
crust
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees & spray with cooking spray a 9 inch round fluted tart pan with a removable bottom.

  5. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the crust is lightly browned.
  6. Let the crust cool completely.
  7. Can be made a day ahead.
Filling
  1. In a medium bowl, mix the drained yogurt with the honey and lemon juice (NOTE: The filling can be made a day ahead, just mix well before spreading into the crust the next day)
