Rustic Blueberry Fruit Tart

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.

Fruit tart

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.

Rustic Blueberry Tart

Blueberry Fruit tart
Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe pate brisee or any pie crust
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Zest and juice of 1/2 a small lemon
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Prepare a pie crust.
  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 1/2" 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 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.

  • Lori

    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.

  • Paula
