Tuesdays with Dorie—Baked Yogurt Tart


Hi everyone! It's been a busy week. I don't have to write a more thorough post later, but here's the short version. I used blueberries, since I had a lot in the fridge. I liked the tart, though I changed it a little. I used Nick Malgeira's Pasta Frolla recipe (from the Pizza Rustica recipe) for the crust and added some lemon zest to complement the blueberries. It turned out pretty.

If I try it again, I'll bake it just until it seems set in the middle. Oh well. It really is tasty. I'm going to try it with different fruit as it becomes available. Cherries, plums, peaches and blackberries are just a few short weeks away!

What did you guys think of this?

  1. Great idea to add the lemon zest I found the filling was a little bland without it plus the lemon would have gone beautifully with the blueberries.

  2. Your tart looks gorgeous. I also enjoyed this tart, although the berries I used were a bit too sour.

  3. it was nice with cherries and a little almond extract. mine took the full time to bake, but didn’t brown. I just took it out at that point because I could tell the filling was set anyway.

  4. Beautifully done! I didn’t think it was anything special…but we all enjoyed a slice :)

  5. Lovely tart! I agree that the recipe could have made it clearer, that this tart was not going to brown. I did enjoy it and would love to give it a try using full fat yogurt. I took mine out of the oven as soon as the custard was not jiggling.

  7. I wish I had gone with my gut feeling and added zest (or something!) to the filling. Your tart looks lovely. I too went the blueberry route – picked up three quarts from the farmer’s market – perfect timing.
