The aroma of warm berries in this effortless tart is sublime.
- 3 cups fresh berries, (raspberries, blueberries and/or blackberries)
- 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, (Neufchatel), softened
- 3 tablespoons nonfat milk
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
- Place berries in an even layer in a 9-inch pie plate or divide among 4 individual gratin dishes. Whisk together cream cheese, milk and lemon juice in a small bowl. Spread over the berries, leaving the outer edge uncovered. Set aside in the refrigerator for up to 1 hour.
- Preheat the broiler. Press sugar through a coarse sieve over the berries, covering them evenly. Broil until the sugar has melted, about 4 minutes. Serve immediately.
