Tarts October 18, 2013

I’ve been on an extremely limited diet in order to find out what my 9 mo old (Cake Pop) is allergic too. It has been difficult, depressing and hard in so many ways. Our culture revolves so heavily on food. I knew it but now I KNOW it. Looking at recipes much less thinking about tasty things has been off limits.

A friend invited my daughters and I over last week and made tarts. With my limited diet, her and her daughters were able to create a tasty tasty blueberry tart. And now I’m on a tart kick! I made three tarts two days later to take to a family gathering. My tart was based on the recipe below. And when I made them I adapted it to a Raspberry tart as well. Think I’ll be needing a set of these . How fun!

Heavenly Blueberry Tart

 

1 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter
1 tablespoon vinegar
FILLING:
2 pints fresh blueberries, divided
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Directions
In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Add vinegar, tossing with a fork to moisten. Press onto bottom and up the sides of a lightly greased 9-in. tart pan with removable bottom.

For filling, place 1 pint of blueberries over crust. Combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg; sprinkle over blueberries. Place tart pan on a baking sheet.Bake at 400° for 55-60 minutes or until crust is browned and filling is bubbly. Remove from the oven; arrange and press remaining berries in a single layer over top. Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.
