Berry Tart With Honey-Yogurt Filling

  • 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 finely grated 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 thickened 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. 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. (The baked crust might have cracks in it; that's okay.) 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.

Note: When you make this in a 9-inch pie plate, know that the tart will not fill it to the rim. An 8-inch tart pan can also be used.
