Simple berry tartWarning - this bubbles over like crazy. Make sure you have a baking sheet to catch the juice or you'll spend the next day scrubbing your oven.
One ten inch tart crust, unbaked, frozen (Deb's recipe is my go to)
2 bags of frozen blackberries (10 oz. each, I think)
1/4 cup sugar (approximately)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
*Toss the blackberries with the sugar and cornstarch. Pile in the frozen crust. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 375 and continue baking for about 45 minutes, until the crust is browned and the berries are bubbly. Let cool for at least 20 minutes before eating, to give it a chance to firm up.
This tart is genuinely tart, because the sugar content is pretty low. It pairs perfectly with homemade ice cream, which is intensely creamy but only mildly sweet.
Simple vanilla ice cream (makes about 6 servings)The ice cream isn't pictured because it is too good. I couldn't just stand around photographing it and letting it melt into oblivion. Home made ice cream melts very quickly because it doesn't have any of those weird stabilizers. You'll just have to imagine it.
2 cups heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup half and half
1 tsp vanilla
*Whisk together the whipping cream and sugar until dissolved, about 2 minutes. Stir in the half and half and the vanilla extract. Freeze according to the instructions on your ice cream maker.
looks delicious! I made home made ice cream for the first time over the weekend. I think I am in love.ReplyDelete
this sounds like a heavenly combination!ReplyDelete
yummmm looks delicious AND beautiful!ReplyDelete
This looks soo yummy! I love a good recipe for berry tart! Delightful!ReplyDelete
Yet another reason why I need an ice cream maker before the summer is out. Sounds soooo good.ReplyDelete
For all those who are now looking for an ice cream freezer, the REAL kind that brings family and friends together to crank and chat by turns (as opposed to the electric ones which do all the fun for you), check out the Lehman's Catalogue (www.Lehmans.com). Our family has the 10-qt size because we LOVE ice cream and sharing the fun of it with friends. Lest you be surprised by the prices, remember: You get what you pay for. And their freezers work like a charm and are built to last a lifetime (or to pass on, if well cared for.)ReplyDelete
Oh, and if you're really blessed, you'll raise a daughter who comes home and bakes the best-ever berry tarts to eat with your homemade ice cream!
Mom, you almost fooled me. I thought you were an advertiser for Lehman's at first but your last sentence gave you away! Love you.ReplyDelete
Or maybe it was Dave? I know it was one of you two.ReplyDelete
Lehmen's is wonderful. I pore over that catalogue like crazy.ReplyDelete
This looks so good! OMGoodness! Yes it does.ReplyDelete
I agree berries are the true sign of summer. This look delicious!ReplyDelete
oh GOODNESS. mm. mmmmm.ReplyDelete
I really didn't believe you that a berry tart that looks THAT good could possibly be simple - but this sounds like a recipe that even I could make! ;)ReplyDelete
Rachel, You were right the first time. I only posted as "Anonymous" because I haven't a clue how to 'Select profile'. But I stand by all my words, especially the last sentence. Love you bunches! Your Anonymom.ReplyDelete
Hmm this looks delicious! i totally agree that nothing says summer more than berries.ReplyDelete
What a fabulous looking tart! These are definitely my go-to dessert during the summer, as they're so easy to make. I made a lemon one last week and I think I'm going to have to give your blackberry version a try next, thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Oh how I can imagine it!ReplyDelete
I made this for my engagement party. It is sooo good! I used a bit more sugar and cornstarch, so it was fine without ice cream.ReplyDelete
