Kiwi and Carambola Tart

  • Serves: 12 people

This elegant yet simple dessert is a perfect way to enjoy kiwi, including the new gold variety. 

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch removable-bottom tart pan or individual tart pans with nonstick cooking spray. Stir together graham-cracker crumbs, wheat germ, sugar, and ginger in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, mix together butter, oil, and water, then pour over graham cracker mixture and stir with a fork. With moist fingers, press crumb mixture onto bottom of pan and 1/4 inch up sides. Bake for 10 minutes, or until set. Cool.
