Berry Tart with Honey Yogurt Filling

This pretty July 4 recipe in the Post was really easy, tasty, and decorative. I’d make it again.

2 cups plain nonfat Greek-style yogurt
9 rectangular graham cracker sheets (4.8 ounces total)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons honey
3/4 teaspoon lemon zest
4 large strawberries, quartered, or 8 small strawberries, halved
3/4 cup blueberries
3/4 cup raspberries

Line a fine-mesh strainer with paper towels and set the strainer over a bowl. Place the yogurt on top of the paper towel in the strainer; transfer to the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. Transfer the yogurt to a bowl, and discard the liquid that has drained off.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Pulse the graham crackers in a food processor to the consistency of fine crumbs. The yield should be about 1 1/3 cups. Add the butter, salt and water; pulse until the crumbs are evenly moistened.

Grease a 9-inch round pie dish (not deep-dish) or 8-inch tart pan with cooking oil spray (I used a pie pan because my tart pan was too big, and it was fine). Use your fingers to press the crumb mixture into a pie plate or tart pan, including a bit up the sides. Bake until browned, 9 or 10 minutes. Let it cool completely.

Add the honey and lemon zest to the yogurt, stirring to incorporate. Transfer the yogurt mixture to the crust, spreading it gently so as not to break up the crust or drag crumbs.

Arrange the berries on top of the yogurt filling. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to 1 day in advance.
