Can I sell you on this? Tartlet. Refreshing. Tart. Cooling. Healthy. Fun. Pretty. Like a Popsicle on a plate! Start with a fork. End with a spoon. You can add what you think, too…who knows, I might just edit/update and add your comment!
Makes: 4-6 frozen tartlets
What you need:
3 cups mixed berries and cherries (fresh preferred)
¼ cup brandy
1 tbl lemon zest
2 tbl lemon juice
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
¼ cup sugar
1 cup fresh blueberries (for topping)
4-6 tbl heavy cream
4-6 fresh mint sprigs (just the tops)
What you do:
Mix the berries/cherries and brandy. Toss and coat and refrigerate overnight.
In a food processor, combine the marinated berries/cherries. Lemon zest, juice, yogurt and sugar and blend until creamy.
Pour equal amounts into the tartlet pan—if there’s any leftover, cheers! You may drink! Top each tartlet with some of the blueberries, drizzle about a tbl of heavy cream on each, and put a sprig of mint in the center. Place in freezer until frozen. When ready to serve, remove, let sit a few minutes and pop out and serve on a dessert dish with a cookie, serve over a bed of European lettuces, top with a scoop of ice cream—be creative!
