Blackberry Tart

Blackberry Tart  by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe
Here’s an easy recipe for a blackberry tart with a walnut crust and a cream cheese and Greek yogurt filling. The walnut crust is easily made by just pressing the dough into the tart pan and then pre-baking it. The filling is lightly sweetened and has lots of vanilla flavor. I added Greek yogurt for creaminess and to be more healthy. I simply topped it with freshly washed blackberries. I also submitted this recipe into the Publix berry recipe contest. This is the first recipe contest I have ever entered. It is regional only, only open to residents in the southeast, in states where there are Publix grocery stores. I created the recipe before I knew about the contest, and happened to see a link to the  contest and the grand prize, a year’s worth of free groceries! I couldn’t pass up the slight chance I might win.

On another note for my regional readers, Aquatica, located here in Orlando is having an amazing deal for Florida and Georgia residents. For just $2 more a ticket, you can upgrade to a year pass for the water park. We went by Sunday, and had such a wonderful time playing in the water. The park wasn’t as busy as I thought it would be. There are lots of slides you can take the little ones on, as well as their famous slide that goes though the dolphin tank.  My husband and I both did a slide by ourselves, and hope by the end of the year (the water is heated in the colder months), we can each go on all the “big kid slides.”

    This is stunning. And I love that you used greek yogurt in the filling…so creamy and much healthier than other dairy options. You so deserve to win this contest!

    This looks so delicious and reasonably easy to make. I’m gonna make it this weekend! They don’t have vanilla favor yogurt where I live though, do you think I can just use regular Greek yogurt instead? Should I add some confectioner’s sugar to make up for the taste?

      That sounds like a great idea, or add honey, until it’s the sweetness you prefer. Then add a shot of vanilla too if you like.
