This easy Mixed Berry Tart makes for one spectacular summer dessert. It couldn’t be easier!
A tart is usually made with a shortbread-type crust that resembles a pie, but has no pastry on the top. A lot of times you will see tarts with a custard-like filling, but since we are using puff pastry, I like to just use fresh ingredients to top it with.
You only need to have your oven on for about half an hour, which is not too bad for baking a dessert. There is also little prep work involved when making this Mixed Berry Tart. All I had to do was slice some strawberries, measure out the rest of my berries and top them onto my pastry.
Using seasonal ingredients is always a good idea. I know here in Minnesota we have an abundance of berries in the grocery stores. So, I take every chance I get to buy them up and use them in recipes.
My girls keep asking for apples, but I tell them we can eat plenty of apples in the fall and winter seasons. Right now, I want all of the raspberries, blueberries and strawberries that I can get!
To make this tart all you need to do is allow your puff pastry to come to room temperature. That only takes about 15 minutes.
Then you cut a line around the edge of your pastry and place the berries inside. I do this so I can have a nice pretty border when it bakes up.
A little house update! We did finally get moved in and out of boxes within a few days after that.
We still need to get the basement finished by making it livable space, but it isn’t a big deal right now because we are traveling around this summer and won’t be home much!
