Usually when fall and winter roll around I am super bummed out.
Losing all the wonderful spring and summer produce can suck. Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits.
But this year I was excited to see what fall and winter would have in store.
Besides the delicious items mentioned above, Meyer lemons and pomegranates are popular fall fruits.
The first day I saw Meyer lemons at the store I picked up 2 bags. I already knew I wanted to make curd.
I also picked up a few pomegranates when I first saw them. They were bright pink, bruise free, and heavy. A sign of good fruit!
Once I finished with the curd I knew I needed to do something with it.
To balance the brightness of the curd I mixed it with cream cheese, and poured that into a crunchy crust.
The pomegranate arils inspiration came from an amazing looking cheesecake I saw on Beth Michelle. They are a must on the tart. The flavorful pop compliments the creamy layer perfectly.
If you want something a bit lighter to go with your pecan pie at Thanksgiving I highly recommend this tart!
