1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Press pastry into 8" (20 cm) round tart pan. Let firm up by placing in freezer 5-10 minutes.
2. In a bowl, whisk together yogurt, sugar, vanilla, orange zest and eggs until smooth. Pour into tart shell. Place tart shell on baking sheet.
3. Bake tart 35-38 minutes until just jiggly in the center. Let tart cool and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours until firm.
4. While tart is cooling, prepare fruit topping. In a small bowl mix together chopped strawberries, blueberries, sugar and orange juice. Keep in fridge until tart is ready.
5. Slice tart and top with fruit and whip cream if desired!

*I cheated and used thawed tart shells, you could also use the pastry from Peach & Apple Half-Moon Pies or any sweet crust or shortcrust pastry recipe you have. The pastry needs to cover the base and sides about 1/4" thick at the most.
