From a summer strawberry tart to an early autumn blackberry pie, we have loads of irresistible berry pies and tarts using the best of seasonal berries.
My daughter picked a load of blackberries so we had the perfect excuse to make a blackberry pie - the end of summer doesn't taste any better than this! The berries do release alot of juice but I didn't hear any complaints!
Sliced strawberries are coated with a strawberry jam glaze, arranged on a digestive biscuit base, chilled and served with whipped cream. A lovely summer barbecue or picnic dessert that children simply adore.
One of the best fruit combinations for a pie! Chunky apple slices add texture while the blackberries add a natural sweetness and a lovely deep purple colour. Hard to resist served warm with vanilla ice cream or custard!
Fresh strawberries and rhubarb are mixed with an eggy custard and poured into a pastry case, topped with more pastry and cooked to golden perfection.
Simply mix rhubarb, berries, sugar and flour together, then spoon the mixture into an unbaked pastry case, dot it with butter, add cover the top with shortcrust pastry. The fruit mixture can also be frozen and used at a later date.
