Healthy Blueberry-Ricotta Tartlets

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.]
