Tarheel Blackberry Tart

I think I should just start by saying… Fall is here!

Yeah, I know…it’s still warm out, the leaves have not all changed and the I haven’t watched; It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown® ( yet ) but it is close y’all !!

That hubbyman of mine has been out back all day, manning the smoker as he loves to do and I thought … “Hey, he made me ribs, least I can do is pop a tart in the oven”  I often do not think in Italics… but it looks pretty right? Anyway, I made an amazing little cup of sweet fall goodness… and easy as, um, pie?

try it, you will like it too…. pinky promise..

loves ya!



Half Pint of good ole Carolina Blackberries ( okay any state will work)

2 Tablespoons white sugar

1 teaspoon corn starch

1 prepared/rolled pie shell… you know the ones

that is it….what?? yup! ( is talking to self )

check this out….. it’ll blow your mind…. 


Roll out the dough a bit thinner than is comes, use flour on your pin to keep it from sticking…

place on a large Cookie sheet…. ( y’all, my cookie sheets are so…well… rustic! That’s a good word for old right?)


In a bowl, add the corn starch to the berries…


Add the sugar and then, using a fork stir well… kinda mash them a wee bit as you go, but keep it very chunky.


add them to the center of your dough and then fold the sides in toward the berries…


like this!

Bake at 350 for about 15-19 minutes… remove from pan and allow to cool…

serve with powdered sugar, whipped cream or ice cream…. DELISHUSHNESS! ( new word, roll with it)
