News flash: Dessert can be the perfect place to add calcium to your diet. We did just that by using ricotta cheese in these sweet little tartlets. (Eight percent of your daily value, so not too shabby!) The apricot jam does double duty: As a sweetener for the ricotta plus as a glaze for the berries.
