Ingredients

  • 1 recipe Sweet Pastry Crust Dough chilled (see below)
  • 1 pint strawberries sliced
  • ½ pint blackberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla paste or gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cream optional
  • 1 tablespoon crystal AA sugar (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the pastry crust dough between two pieces of plastic wrap and roll it out to an 11-inch disk, about 1/4 inch thick. Remove the top piece of plastic wrap. Lift dough on the remaining piece of wrap and invert it onto the center of a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Peel off and discard the remaining piece of wrap.

  2. Toss together the strawberries, blackberries, ¼ cup sugar, and vanilla and let macerate for 15 minutes. Strain the fruit of excess juice.
  3. Place the fruit in the center of the tart. Fold the dough edges over toward the center of the tart, overlapping a bit of the fruit. If desired, brush the edges with cream and sprinkle with crystal sugar. Bake immediately for 15 minutes, rotate and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, until the edges are golden and the fruit juices start to run. Cool slightly, remove from the parchment paper, and finish cooling on a rack. Serve at room temperature.

Sweet Pastry Crust

One of the easiest and most delicious GF tart crusts we’ve come across, this can and should be your go-to for all your spring- and summer-dessert tarts! For pies, you’ll need to roll out the dough, place it in a pie tin, weigh it down with parchment paper and dried beans or baking weights, and par-bake at 350°F for 15 minutes before adding and baking with fillings. For galettes, you can just top the raw dough with sliced, macerated fruits and then bake.
