Fresh summer raspberries encased in a buttery pastry.
If you are having trouble with your pastry coming together, keep mixing it - it comes into a ball just fine. A stand mixer may be used. You will need to chill it as directed or it is a little sticky to deal with.
Very good! The crust is awesome. If you are having trouble with your crust coming together, keep mixing it. I mixed mine in the stand mixer and it comes into a ball just fine. You will need to chill it as directed or it is a little sticky to deal with. I made individual tarts because there were only 2 of us. I used Smuckers Seedless Red Raspberry Jam and it set up beautifully. This dessert is not overly sweet (yes!), so it was a perfect platform for a little chopped white chocolate (dark chocolate would also be great), but it is delicious as-is. I think this is a great recipe for any fresh berry or fruit. Thanks!! - 31 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I hate to write a "bad" review, but something about this recipe isn't right: how are you supposed to make a tart dough without adding any liquid to the flour mixture? (e.g. egg, vinegar, milk, water, etc.) I tried pressing the butter/flour/sugar into my tart pan, but it turned into a powdery mess. I added a few Tbsp.s of water, which helped a bit, but I still found the filling to be too tart for my family's tastes. Probably won't try this recipe again. - 03 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Everyone loved this tart, especially the crust. After it was baked and cooled, I lined it with 4 oz. of cream cheese that had been mixed with powdered sugar and a little vanilla. I used strawberries (halved, cut side down) instead of raspberries. I melted apple jelly in the microwave and brushed it over the fruit. An excellent, easy recipe. - 16 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
