Happy Fourth! Summer Berry Tart Drizzled in Warm Honey

Wednesday, July 4, 2012

This was so so so so so so so sososososos good. 
I'm not exaggerating - as of today, this is one of our new favorite desserts. 
I used sugar cookie for the crust and greek yogurt mixed with vanilla & almond extract, topped with fresh berries + lemon rind & drizzled in warm honey. It's a healthier version of a tart {and we agreed more delicious!}.
 The sweetness from the sugar cookie married perfectly to the tang from the yogurt & berries. 
 1. Spread the sugar cookie dough on a baking sheet & bake at 375 until lightly browned.
2. Mix vanilla greek yogurt with a teaspoon of vanilla extract + a teaspoon of almond extract. 
Place in the refrigerator until the sugar cookie crust has completely cooled. 
3. Spread the yogurt mixture on the crust, top with sliced strawberries, blueberries & freshly grated lemon rind.
4. Drizzle warm honey over the top & ENJOY!!
Happy Independence Day from Okinawa!
