    PaulaG's Note:

    Yogurt cheese is a wonderful way to reduce calories and fat. This recipe makes a delicious and creamy low-fat dessert. I used Graham Cracker Tart Crust for the tart crust. The longest amount of time is in straining the yogurt to make the cheese. In place of the vanilla yogurt, you can use a 32 container of plain lowfat yogurt and add 1 teaspoon vanilla. The powdered sugar in the recipe might need to be increased to 1/3 cup depending on taste.

      This is a very good tart. Everyone loved it. I drained the yogurt in a cheesecloth lined colander overnight in the fridge. The end result is a tart that's good enough for company and does not taste as though it's low fat.

      Delicious. The yogurt trick is a great one, i thought it would be more problematic but it was perfect. Saw a show on FNC that suggested using a clean cotton pillow case to drain things from yogurt to fruit so i used that, knotting it over my cupboard handle. took 6 hours to drain completely. Flavors were excellent and will use this as a sub for other cheeses when needed in desserts. Thanks so much. my pic is lousy, my apologies.
