Fruit and Yogurt Almond Tart

Serves 12

For the crust:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon almond extact
1 cup almond meal
1 cup crushed bran flakes
Pinch of salt

For the filling:
2 cups vanilla or lemon yogurt
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup sliced peeled kiwis
1 peach, halved, pitted sliced
1 cup mandarin slices

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and butter the sides and bottom of a 10-inch round tart pan.

2. Using a food processor, blend the butter, sugar and almond extract on medium speed until creamy. In a medium-sized bowl, mix almond flour, bran flakes and salt. Add to butter mixture and process on low until a dough forms.

3. Dump onto a lightly floured surface and shape into a flat circle. Press dough into prepared tart pan, pressing dough evenly on bottom and sides of the pan. Chill in refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes.

4. Poke crust with a fork and bake in oven for 25 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack to room temperature.

5. Loosen sides of the pan and transfer tart shell to a serving platter. Fill with yogurt and artfully arrange assorted fruit on top. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
