Any berry topping will do. We used Blueberries, Strawberries and Raspberries. You can also try mango and passionfruit!

1 Preheat oven to 200C.
2 Process flour, butter and icing sugar in a food processor until it has the consistency of breadcrumbs.

5 Set aside to cool slightly, and reduce oven temperature to 180C.
6 While base is cooking, process La Casa Del Formaggio Ricotta, yoghurt, caster sugar, lime zest, lime juice and eggs with an electric mixer until smooth.
7 Pour into tart base and bake for 35 minutes or until just set.
8 Cool slightly and then refrigerate until completely cooled. Serve topped with berries and dust with icing sugar.
