Servings: 10 servings
- 2 1/4 cups - 2 1/2 flour 225 grams
- 1/2 cup sugar 100 grams
- 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 grams
- 1 egg (room temperature)
- 1 egg yolk (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup butter (room temperature) 125 grams
- BLACKBERRY FILLING
- 3 cups fresh black berries
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 6 tablespoons flour
- juice from 1/2 lemon
In a large bowl,gently whisk together flour (start with 2 1/4 cups),sugar and baking powder, create a well in the middle and add slightly beaten egg and yolk and butter cut into pieces. Mix together, at this point turn mixture onto a slightly floured surface and work the mixture to form a soft dough (it will take about 10 minutes for everything to come together to form a dough, it does seem crumbly at first but don't lose patience). Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Remove from fridge and knead the dough a couple of times to soften it up again on a lightly floured surface. Roll out to 1/8" thickness. Place cut out dough into lightly greased tart pans.
Pre-heat oven to 375° (190° celsius).
In a medium - large bowl mix together blackberries, sugar, flour and lemon juice, squish gently with a fork while mixing (but do not squish berries completely). Add mixture to tart pans with dough, (I made 5 x 4 inch (10 centimeter) tart pans and 3 mini muffin tarts) fill to the top. Dot with a little butter (2 small dots per tart), top with leftover dough (strips or cut outs), do not completely cover because steam must be able to escape while baking. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!
