MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2014

I've made a lot of pies in my life, but I have never had so many compliments on a pastry dessert as this one! And guess what? I used frozen blackberries and blueberries! Just thaw them first and drain off some of the excess juice. I used the same amount of flour and it set beautifully. The crust was the winner here. It's definitely a keeper!

I've made a lot pie crust and never gotten so many complements on crust as I did with this recipe. I had more blackberries than blueberries so I just used 6 cups fruit total and it was perfect!

I have never made a fruit pie or anything involving fruit and a crust of any sort. This was a great place to start. It was super easy, and one of the best tasting things I have ever eaten. I'm not typically a fan of fruit desserts, but I think it is time to change my mind. Fantastic and enjoyable recipe! It was even a hit with my 9 & 11 year old!

Absolutley delicious! Made this for our 4th of July picnic and should have made 2!! (there were only 6 of us at the picnic!!). I am not good with crusts but since this is a rustic tart, it didnt matter how it looked. Since the crust is 50% of this tart, without it, it wouldnt be a prize winner. In other words make the crust...its so worth it! Wonderfully fresh and delicious.
