Ingredients for making homemade Tart Crust
- Butter, cold, cut into cubes
Tart Crust Directions:
Preheat oven to 450.
Add butter, flour and 3 tablespoons of water to a food processor. Process for 20 seconds. Add additional water as needed, 1 tablespoon at a time until dough forms. I usually use about 5 tablespoons of water. Process for about 20 seconds after each addition of water.
Remove dough from processor and press into a tart pan with your hands and fingers. Press evenly on the bottom and up the sides.
Wrap heavy duty foil around the edges and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, and remove the foil. Return to the oven and bake an additional 7 minutes or until golden brown.
The crust will most likely bubble up in the center. I’ve poked holes in it and it still bubbles up. I just press down with the back of a spoon after baking.
Ingredients for Tart filling made with frozen fruit
- Frozen fruit, thawed
- Juice from frozen fruit
*After thawing your fruit, pour the fruit juice into a separate container. You’ll need 1/2 cup and can add water to the juice to obtain that amount.
*People often ask how to make a tart with frozen fruit, so I wanted to share this method.
You CAN of course use fresh berries, you’ll just have to add the additional water. We freeze our berries each summer, so that’s normally what I use.
As strange as it sounds, I honestly think this particular tart recipe using frozen fruit turns out better than with fresh fruit.
How to make Tarts with Frozen Fruit
In a saucepan, add frozen fruit and sugar. Heat on medium high heat stirring constantly. Boil mixture for about two minutes.
Add flour to juice and mix well. Pour flour mixture into the saucepan and boil for about another minute until mixture is thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and cool.
Pour filling into prepared tart and bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.
These tart desserts also make wonderful party dishes and great hostess gifts, especially if you let the hostess keep the tart tin that you bring it in!
I love sharing good fruit and berry recipes and this is definitely one of our favorites. We grow a variety of berries each summer and these are the recipes that I go to for our summer desserts. There is something so wonderful about berry desserts!
