Summer Fruit Tart with Carameled Popcorn Crust

Gluten free never tasted so good. The crust is made from The Art of Caramelís Vanilla Bean Cocoa Nib carameled popcorn. The ricotta/sour cream filling is light, tangy and barely sweet. This treat is crowned with whatever summer fruit you have on hand. It pairs just as beautifully with plums, apricots and peaches as it does with kiwi and assorted berries.
