March 14 (3.14) is Pi Day. In celebration I made this nice rustic berry tart. Since this was a thrown together recipe the measurements are approximate.
- 1 frozen pie crust thawed, you can of course use homemade but I hate making pie crust.
- 2 cups berries of your choice, I used a mix of frozen strawberries, blackberries and blueberries, allow to thaw if you are using frozen. Drain excess juices that came out during thawing.
- 1/4 cup sugar, I don't like a really sweet tart, use 1/2 cup if you like it sweeter.
- 1/3 cup jam or jelly, I used orange marmalade to keep with the less sweet theme, apricot or apple would be nice too.
- 1/2 cup crushed ginger snaps. Graham crackers would probably also work.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place pie crust in pie plate or on a sheet pan doesn't matter for this recipe (use some parchment paper or grease it to keep the tart from sticking).
- Mix the berries, sugar, and half the cookie crumbs in a bowl, let sit 10 minutes.
- Pour berries into middle of the crust, spread evenly to 2 inches from the edge. Microwave the jam for about 15-30 seconds to loosen it up a little, drizzle over the berries.
- Fold edges of the crust in and over the berries (see picture).
- Sprinkle the rest of the cookie crumbs over the top of the tart.
- Bake 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown and delicious.
- Allow to cool before cutting and serving.
