Apple Blackberry Fruit Tart
One of my favorite summer memories growing up was picking blackberries with my Mom. Getting our hands covered in blackberry juice as we ate 2 and put 1 in the bucket. We might now have filled the bucket very quickly but we had a great time picking blackberries.
I still beg my Mom each year for a bucket or 5 of fresh blackberries from their side of the state. There is just something truly divine about freshly picked blackberries.
- Fresh blackberries
- All-purpose flour
- Lemon juice

Apple Blackberry Fruit Tart Recipe
- In a large bowl, mix together the flour, salt, and 3 tablespoons of the sugar. Cut in the shortening until the mixture is crumbly and then add in the water to form a soft dough. Mix the dough until it holds together without crumbling.
- Slice the apples into thin slices and place in a medium bowl with the remaining sugar, cornstarch, and the lemon juice. Let this mixture set for about 5 minutes.
- Take the dough and divide it in half, place half of the dough into a greased tart dish or a cake pan. Use your fingers to stretch the dough over the bottom of the pans and about ½ inch up the sides. Repeat in a second pan for the rest of the dough.
- Drain the apples from the juice in their bowl and arrange them in a pattern over the top of the dough with the blackberries. Place the tart in the oven at 400 degrees and bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until the crust is a golden brown.
