Lemon Poppy Seed Yogurt Tarts

Nothing tastes like summer more than refreshing lemons and sun-ripened cherries, which is why created our first ever dual-flavored “Summer Variety Pack” featuring Cherry Pie and Lemon Poppy Seed. We’ve taken our new Perfect Bar recipe Lemon Poppy Seed and turned it into a summer favorite. Give these Lemon Poppy Seed Yogurt Tarts a try and indulge in the taste of summer.

  1. Make the crusts: Firmly press about ¾ of a Lemon Poppy Seed Perfect Bar into the bottom and up against the sides of six 3-inch tart pans or 1 standard size muffin pan lined with plastic wrap or muffin liners, pushing the crust evenly up the sides, and smoothing out the perimeters. (Will need about 5 to 6 bars for this). Place the prepared crusts in the fridge or freezer to firm up until ready to fill.
  2. Make the filling and topping: Add the yogurt to a small mixing bowl and set aside. In a blender, combine the seeded lemon slices and honey and process on medium-low until a very loose but lightly pulpy lemon sauce is achieved. Transfer half of the lemon sauce to the yogurt and stir until incorporated. Taste yogurt to adjust for sweetness and lemon flavor. Transfer remaining sauce to a small bowl and stir in a ½ teaspoon of poppy seeds.
  3. Assembly: Retrieve the tart shells from the freezer and spoon the yogurt filling into the crusts. Top each tart with a small spoonful of the lemony poppy seed sauce and a half-moon sliver of a lemon wedge. Serve chilled.

*The tarts keep well, covered, in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
