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!
