Baked Yogurt Tart #TuesdayswithDorie

For July, our Tuesdays with Dorie group will be baking up two delicious tarts…one sweet and one savory. First up is this berry filled Baked Yogurt Tart from contributing baker, Leslie Mackie. The hardest part of this recipe was deciding what pan to use….my 9 inch cake pan was too deep, my favorite pie plate too funky. I settled on a tart pan, knowing I’d probably have some extra filling. I could have made TWO of these babies.

Besides having to deal with my nemesis, the dreaded pie crust, this tart was a snap to whip up. The flaky crust in Baking with Julia performed beautifully…whew. After it was blind baked (baked without filling; weighted down with pie weights or even dried beans to avoid the middle from puffing up) and cooled, a filling of eggs, sugar, loads of vanilla, yogurt and flour was poured into the crust.  The slightly tangy filling reminded me of cheesecake batter, but not quite as sweet…oh, boy. Berries were to be scattered over the filling…but I’m more of an organized, composed sort of gal…and I arranged blueberries, blackberries and raspberries in a circular pattern. A ring of of roasted almonds completed the topping. The tart was baked, cooled, then dusted with powdered sugar to serve. Since Independence Day is in a couple days, I think this would be a perfect dessert for the holiday…a tart in its red, whitish and blue glory!!!

But be forewarned…this tart tastes best on the day it’s made. And our family could not finish it before the quality deteriorated. Well, there was homemade hot fudge sauce in the fridge. Chocolate trumps fruit around here.

The recipe can be found here.

    This is another very pretty dessert that would have everyone ooohing and aaahing! Happy 4th of July Week-enjoy:@)

  7. This tart sounds amazing! Love the idea of baked yogurt and you decorated it perfectly…. looking forward to trying it. The only thing that scares me is the crust. I have such a hard time with crusts too.

  8. Peachy @ The Peach Kitchen says:

    Baking Tarts intimidates me and I haven’t tried yet.Ii love yogurt and your tart just inspires me to try.

  9. Wow, such a gorgeous and perfect looking tart! Love all these summery berry desserts and this sounds fabulous with baked yogurt :)

  10. I am with you on pastry crust. :). Looks like this came out perfect.

  11. Very symmetrically made tart Liz! I love the alternation of berries on top!

  12. Loads of vanilla?? I’m in! It looks delicious and the crust is perfect. At first I thought it was shaved white chocolate rimming the tart, but almonds work too. Just leave the chocolate off my piece, ok?

  13. Gorgeous, and very patriotic! I agree that this had to be eaten right away.

  14. This tart looks amazing, Liz! So beautiful and, you’re right, it would be the perfect dessert for Fourth of July :)

  15. Liz, this tart is gorgeous–perfect for the upcoming holiday! That crust looks so flaky and delicious.

  16. Beautiful and festive tart!!! Just loving all the fresh berries this summer!!!

  17. Beautiful tart and I love the photographs!!!

  18. Liz, it looks beautiful. I fell off the TWD wagon and need to get back on it!

  19. Looks great! I confess that I’ve been neglecting my TWD assignments for quite some time, but I’m almost motivated enough to pick up my blog again… almost… maybe after summer ;-)

  20. Beautiful tart! Love how you used the three fruits. I totally forgot to dust mine with icing sugar! D’oh!
    I was impressed with this tart and I look forward to making it again.

  21. Looks like it came out of a bakery! Gorgeous!

  22. Not sure I ever had a yogurt tart but it does sounds great. Lighter and great for berries. That reminds me my mom still has my tart pan :-S

  23. What a professional and beautiful tart my friend :D

    Cheers

  24. What a lovely dessert for the 4th of July. I’d like a slice right now!

  25. Simply beautiful looking tart!

  26. Gorgeous tart!! I love these kind of desserts! It looks simply amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. This is so pretty Liz and I cannot imagine you just scattering berries!

  28. It’s a very pretty looking pie and perfect for your upcoming 4th of July celebrations. I hate to make pie crust too – it’s such a lot of bother! xx

  29. That is a gorgeous thing!! Happy 4th of July to you and yours.

  30. This is soooo pretty! And yes, perfect for the 4th of July!

  31. Your crust is beautiful! I love making pies but the crusts never look very pretty. I’d love it if King Arthur would invite me to one of their pie crust making classes. I could use some help with my technique. I hear ya where hot fugde trumps fruit. It does here too!

  32. Perfect for the 4th!

  33. A perfect summer berry tart, Liz.

  34. This tart is perfect for the 4th of July! It looks so pretty and colorful – pinned!

  35. Liz, beautiful presentation and wonderful choice of fresh berries – I love that you added three different kinds of seasonal berries to your Jogurt Tart – makes for a delicious and elegant dessert!
    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  36. I love the “organized” look of your berries! I agree. I’m generally not much for decorating, but even I couldn’t bring myself to just scatter the fruit on top. I felt it needed a pattern.

  37. Your tart is beautiful… and very patriotic. Chocolate trumps fruit at our house, too. I’ll be making brownies with red, white and blue M&Ms for the Fourth.

  38. how pretty! it would perfect for tomorrow’s holiday. happy 4th!

  39. Beautiful tart. I love the design you made with the fruits and nuts! Random fruit tossing is more rustic looking. This tart is ready for a summer party! :)

  40. Liz, you’re the Michaelangelo of dessert – everything you make is a work of art! If only I lived near you – I’d have been over in a heartbeat to help you finish this tart ;)

  41. Love your tart Liz! Looks picture perfect!

  42. This looks AH-MAZING! I so want a big piece of this right now!!! Thanks for sharing.

  43. Perfection!! I always adore your photographs. :) I agree—day 2 of eating this wasn’t the same. We sure did enjoy my peach and almond combination though!

  44. Lizzy , your tart looks too pretty for words ;)

  45. It’s stunning but I’m wondering why the taste deteriorated. I’ve never made a filling like this with yogurt so maybe there’s something about it that doesn’t hold up? And yes, chocolate sauce fixes everything. :)

  46. How did I miss this one Liz…the yoghurt tart looks beautiful and the crust looks perfect and crispy. Julia Child recipes cannot go wrong ever.

  47. I can’t believe you have any nemesis in baking. It looks perfect and beautiful as always. :)

  48. Liz your tart is beautiful! I am a little late on this one. I did make it just haven’t blogged it yet! I totally agree it was good the first day and maybe even the second, but after that the filling was like rubber. I wasn’t creative enough to finish it off with hot fudge sauce — although my hubby would have LOVED it then! :)
