Driving home from work, munching happily on the couple of Blueberry PB&J Bites I saved for an early evening snack, I realized that these would make a neat cookie sandwich with a little fruit sorbet, or an equally cute little fruit tartlet with yogurt and fresh berries.
Anticipating another post-work treat, I couldn’t wait to try it out, so I rerouted to the store and got an orange and a small tub of plain yogurt (thanks to Summer, there’s plenty of berries at home). Some wonderfully fragrant zest and juice later, and the Bright Berry Summer Tartlets were born!
Start by rinsing and zesting your orange (if you don’t have a zester, use a vegetable peeler to take only the orange part of the rind, and chop it up). Then, peel the orange and squeeze the juice from 3-4 pieces into your yogurt (chop the remaining orange slices for garnish or do what I did and enjoy the rest of the orange as you assemble 😉).
Next, take half of a batch of Blueberry PB&J bites, based on the basic version listed here:
Lay them on a platter, and divide the contents of the yogurt mixture to spread over the tops. Garnish with the zest, berries and/or berries & chopped orange.
These little bites are crunchy, sweet, savory and bright with a tangy citrus finish. Enjoy!
