Berry Good Tart

It’s been a great, long while since I last posted, but I have a good excuse. Really, I do.  I’ve spent the better part of a year working on a new food concept and I’m beyond thrilled to announce that I’ll be opening a restaurant by summer’s end.  It has been stressful, crazy, fun, exciting, meaningful, challenging, exhilarating… well, you get the idea.  As opening day gets closer, I’ll tell you more about it.  In the meantime, you must make this tart.

Mostly because it is as easy as it is delicious.  For me, the hardest part is simply remembering to pick up superfine baker’s sugar when I’m at the market.  (I came home without it the first time.)

We made it for a party we were going to.  My little man wanted it all for himself.  There wasn’t a slice left when it was time to leave. He was bummed.  I was delighted… still working on being swim suit ready for our vacation in August!

    I love fruit desserts! Thanks for this one– my boys and I will put it on our menu this week. If I may, there’s a typo on the ingredient list for self-rising flour. Best wishes, and looking forward to more of your recipe ideas!
