Reviews for Blueberry-Blackberry Rustic Tart
"I will make this many times in the coming months. Good"
"This is soooo good! And fairly easy, as evidenced by my daughter making it for our family! Well worth the effort and expense of buying the fruit. In season it's not too expensive though. I would spray the parchment with a spray oil to more easily facilitate removing the tart from the paper after it is cool."
"I thought this recipe was delicious. I never thought to incorporate corn meal in a pie crust before and am pleasantly surprised how good it tastes with the fruit. I'm thinking of putting blueberries in my corn muffins next time I bake them."
"Tried this the other night and my husband loved it. I did use crust already made and it was still delicious."
"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."
"Excellent crust recipe. It could easily be used for any fruit mixture. I added juneberries (serviceberries) to it for a great taste."
