So we didn’t have flour in our house for a little over a week. I don’t know how we survived, honestly. I know you’re thinking, why didn’t you just go get flour? Oh, because we buy our flour 50 pounds at a time from a little store almost an hour away. We’re picky and we found a great stone ground white whole wheat flour that we just love. 50 pounds of flour lasts us about 3 and a half months. We bake a lot.
So the day after we bought our flour we got to work, I got up early and made blueberry muffins and a pie crust. AJ spent his morning making soaked wheat bread. I then made biscuits as a side for dinner and then I made the pie crust from that morning into a wild berry tart. Blueberry muffins, pie crust, 2 loaves of bread, and a batch of biscuits. Yep, we had to make up for lost time! (and I think we succeeded, right?)
I think I’m in love with this wild berry tart, it’s a mix of fresh and sweetened raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries enveloped in a pie crust. Of course I used my easy four ingredient flaky pie crust recipe it’s my favorite recipe ever, so easy and versatile.
It still doesn’t feel like Spring, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pick up some berries and enjoy a slice of Summer with this delicious wild berry tart. It’s even better topped with homemade whipped cream, so refreshing!
You could use a different mix of berries, these three just happen to be my favorites. I just love baking with fruit, I can’t wait for fruit to officially be in season.
Doesn’t this tart just look like a bright Summer day? It sure has me daydreaming..
