Lemon Berry Tart

Lemon Berry TartTry this easy Lemon Berry Tart with your Fourth of July menu! We took a few shortcuts with the recipe this week by using a few store-bought ingredients since we were short on time but you could replace them with homemade crust and pastry cream. Get the kiddos in the kitchen to help you out with this treat, my 8-year-old loved using the berries to create a firework pattern. Happy Independence Day from the Square Foot Gardening Foundation!


  • 1 refrigerated 9″ pie crust, softened for 15 minutes
  • 3 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 6 oz. plain greek yogurt
  • 1 box instant lemon pudding (4 serving size, any flavor will work, use your imagination!)
  • 1 c. milk
  • Assortment of berries (we used blueberries, strawberries and raspberries for our patriotic theme)


Bake pie crust in a tart pan as package directs, cool completely.

Mix cream cheese with a whisk until smooth. Add remaining filling ingredients (yogurt, pudding and milk), stir until combined. Pour into cooled pie shell. Refrigerate 1 hour or until set.

Top with mixed berries and serve. *The kids can have some fun here by using the berries to create patriotic patterns!*
