Mixed-Berry Crumble Tart Recipe

I love trying out new recipes and luckily last night I had the opportunity to as it was my night to bring snacks to my Small Group Bible Study. One of the recipes I attempted was this Mixed-Berry Crumble Tart and afterwards everyone said it was a keeper...so I thought maybe you would like to try this one out too!

Now, I forgot to take a before picture...but here's an after picture...it's nearly gone, so that's got to tell you that it's delicious. It's made from a mixture of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries which I thought was perfect for the summer time. And berries are really good for your body too--full of antioxidants and vitamins, which is great--okay, okay there's definitely some sugar and butter in this so it's not the healthiest but what can I say? I love the sweets!!

Ingredients:

  • Pastry for One-Crust Pie (You can use a store-bought pie crust)
  • 1 1/2 C. sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 1/2 C. fresh blueberries
  • 1 C. fresh raspberries
  • 2/3 C. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 3/4 C. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 C. sugar
  • 1 tsp. grated orange peel
  • 1/3 C. butter/margarine, melted

Directions:

Heat oven to 425 degree F. Press pastry against bottom and side of pan. Trim any overhanging edge of pastry even with top of pan.

In large bowl, gently toss berries with 2/3 C. sugar and the cornstarch. Spoon into pastry-lined pan.

In small bowl, stir flour, 1/2 C. sugar, the orange peel and butter with fork until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over berries.

Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until fruit bubbles in center. Serve warm.

Just a few little tips and hints. If you don't want to make your own pastry, it's perfectly fine to use the store-bought crust...nobody will be able to tell the difference. Also, since berries can be pricy, I bought the frozen ones. I found a blend of raspberries, blueberries and black berries and then also bought a package of strawberries. Let the thaw and then they'll be fine to use. If you don't want to use a tart pan, you can also use a regular pie pan as I did.

Well, I hope you enjoy this delicious treat as much as we did! Bon appetit!!
