Lemon Lime Yogurt Torte

This creamy tangy yogurt tart is perfect for your Mother's Day brunch table. 

Creamy tortes can take forever to make but in most cases are worth the wait. This is certainly one of those times. The torte takes 3 hours to set in the refrigerator so be aware of this before committing to making it.

What I love about this recipe is that it works for any season. Light and refreshing for spring and summer, it is also a great way to take advantage of winter citrus and will lighten up any fall-flavored menu.

The simple vanilla crust is lovely and sweet. The lemon lime layer is gelatin based and made with yogurt and cream cheese scented with fresh lemon and lime juice.

An easy decoration of lemon and lime peels adorns the top. To make the decoration safely edible, using organic produce is advised. If you have the time, I highly recommend making candied citrus peels to replace the fresh ones for an extra special touch.

This fresh and pretty dessert combines the favorite and traditional lemon and lime flavors and looks lovely on any dessert table.
