Blackberry Tarts

My friend and her family went blackberry picking at Eckerts last weekend. I was so jealous by her loot that I went to the local Eckerts outlet and picked up some of my own.

I should have put a quarter next to one of the berries so you could see just how huge they are.

The kids wouldn’t eat them raw, so I found this recipe from Martha Stewart.

Obviously I used blackberries instead of blueberries. The recipe called for 2 cups of blueberries, but I only needed 24 blackberries…one for each cup. (I writing this post with a 3 year old jumping on my back. My apologies)

The crust is divine and I didn’t/wouldn’t change anything about it.

I just sprinkled the 24 blackberries with a little lemon juice, sugar, and instant tapioca (I didn’t have cornstarch).

Next time I would maybe use a little more sugar for the filling. The crust is pretty sweet, so the tart berries really set it off.

After I brought them out of the oven, the blackberries were still whole. I just used the butt end of a knife to smash them up a bit. The were fine once they cooled.

    Did you go out and buy the mini muffin pan too?

    I never did make anything out of our 7 pounds. We’ve been enjoying them so much that we don’t want to “waste” them in baked goods.
