Easy Blueberry Recipe: Fruit Tart

I love blueberry season and trying a new blueberry recipe is always fun.  This rustic tart is great blueberry recipe to make when fresh blueberries are in the markets.  A simple pie crust is filled with berries and baked to perfection.

This week’s Sunday Supper theme is so much fun!  This week the Sunday Supper crew are cooking up dishes inspired by music! I had such fun reading through everyone’s recipes, but when I had to come up with an idea, I drew a total blank.  Lucky for me, I married a musician who helped me find the perfect song to inspire me – Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino.

It is blueberry season and I’ve been buying as many blueberries as we can eat plus some.  I’ve made blueberry pie, blueberry donuts, and even peach blueberry basil iced tea.  But I’ve been wanting to try my hand at an easy blueberry recipe – a fruit tart.

I was really surprised at how quickly and easily the tart came together.  I made my pate brisee recipe, which is basically an all butter crust, for the crust.   One thing I’m terrible at in the kitchen is rolling out crust into a circle!  I just can’t seem to do it.

The berries are mixed with a few simple, basic ingredients and then plopped in to the middle of the pastry dough.  Be careful – they roll! Fold the edge of the dough around the the berries and then bake.

Blueberry Recipe: Rustic Tart #SundaySupper
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 recipe pate brisee or any pie crust
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Zest and juice of ½ a small lemon
  • pinch of salt
  1. Prepare the pate brisee or crust through the chill.
  2. When ready to bake, roll out the crust in to a 12-inch circle on a piece of parchment paper large enough to hold the circle.
  3. In a small bowl stir together berries, flour, sugar, cinnamon, zest and juice of lemon and salt. Toss so the berries are coated.
  4. Carefully place the berries in the center of the pastry disk (careful - they roll!). Leave ½" of dough around the edges.
  5. Gently fold up the edges of the dough over the berries, pleating every 2 inches or so. Pinch together any rips or tears.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 55-60 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool on parchment paper.

    I’ve made a pear tart like this, but have to try your blueberry one because my kids lo-ove blueberries. Thanks for sharing at Inspire Us Thursday on Organized 31.

    I love blueberry season for the baking opportunities it provides! I just made a blueberry cream cheese pie, but have never tried a blueberry tart. Your recipe looks simple and delicious. I’ll have to give it a try.

  3. says

    Your tart looks wonderful! I love making free form tarts like this, they are so simple to make but are always so delicious! Yours looks great with all those blueberries! :)

  4. says

    WOW this looks incredible. Fats Domino reminds me greatly of New Orleans and that is my favorite place on earth (we’re getting married there!) so I love this recipe!

  5. says

    I should make more rustic pies. Maybe then I will not be reduced to a sobbing mess when I try to roll out the crust for the pie.

    Blueberry pie is one of my faves. Which is a little bit weird, since I usually take my blueberries fresh or not at all. But if it’s in pie, all bets are off.

  6. says

    I love rustic tarts like this – they prove you don’t need to get all fussy making a tart look “just so,” because they taste just as delicious this way. And I actually really like the rustic look, personally.

  7. says

    I adore galettes, eaiser than pie and that rustic look! Blueberries are found year round now, and they´re so good! Lovely recipe Camille!

  8. says

    Bliss! This is so beautiful, I just love its simple, rustic charm. Now, if you’ll please bring it over, I have a carton of vanilla bean ice cream who love to make friends…
