Total Time:
25 mins
1 1/3 cups berry topper


  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

  • 4 teaspoon cornstarch

  • Dash salt

  • ½ cup water

  • 2 cup mixed fresh berries, such as blueberries, raspberries, and/or blackberries

  • 1 teaspoon butter

  • 1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel

  • 4 ounce reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel), softened

  • 2 tablespoon orange marmalade

  • 2 teaspoon granulated sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom

  • 2 pita bread rounds, split

  • 2 tablespoon butter, melted

  • Powdered sugar (optional)


  1. For berry topping, in a medium saucepan combine 1/4 cup granulated sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Stir in the water. Stir in 1/2 cup of the berries. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened. Remove from heat. Add an additional 1 cup of the berries and the 1 teaspoon butter, stirring until butter is melted. Gently stir in orange peel.

  2. In a medium bowl combine cream cheese and orange marmalade; beat with an electric mixer on low to medium speed until smooth. In a small bowl stir together the 2 teaspoons granulated sugar and the cardamom.

  3. Toast the split pita rounds. Brush pita rounds with the 2 tablespoons melted butter; sprinkle with the sugar-cardamom mixture. Spread cream cheese mixture over split pita rounds. Spread berry topping over cream cheese mixture. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup berries. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Make-Ahead Tip:

If desired, make the berry topping and cool completely. Cover and chill at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours before using.
