Dessert: Cream Tart, You Bring The Fresh Fruit

This simple recipe grabbed my attention the other day, only because I was craving sweets, but not heavy in sugar or endless ingredients making the baking a chore instead of a wonderful project, especially on a rainy day.

The only negative for me is citrus for the fruits used. I mean I do love lemon flavored most anything, but orange for some reason, I prefer to eat fresh. So, for this recipe, I am suggesting you add your favorite fruit – blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, canned apricots, infused pairs, thinly sliced apples…well,  you get the point.


  • 1 sheet frozen puff pasty, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • raw coarse sugar, for sprinkling (optional).   {I prefer a sprinkle of cinnamon over sugar}
  • 6 ounces creme fraiche, mascarpone, or cream cheese {mascarpone over creme fraiche
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon Meyer lemon juice + 1-2 teaspoons zest, to your taste
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey, plus more for serving
  • 6-8 mixed color oranges, thinly sliced (I used all blood oranges)
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • fresh thyme, for serving. {more}
