1 1/2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
3/4
cup butter or margarine, cut into pieces
1/3

  • 3 In chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream, 3 tablespoons powdered sugar and remaining 1 tablespoon lemon peel with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently stir in yogurt. Spoon over crust. Top with nectarines and blackberries. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until serving.

Expert Tips

Line pan with heavy-duty foil, leaving at least 3 inches around all edges. The foil serves as a handle for lifting the dessert out of the pan, so cutting and serving will be easier.

Garnish each serving with a mint leaf or lemon balm leaf.

Be sure to use butter or margarine, not a vegetable oil spread. Spreads contain less fat than butter or margarine and will not give the same results.
