Easy Blackberry Shortbread Tart

Shortbread Crust

Butter 10 oz
Sugar 1 Cup +2 Tablespoons
Vanilla Extract 1.5 teaspoons
Salt .5 teaspoon
Flour 2 Cups
Almond Flour 3/4 Cup


Blackberry Pie Filling 1 Can
Fresh Blackberries 10
Lemon Juice 3 Tablespoons


This is an easy tart that can be whipped up in about 10 minutes, you can use any flavor pie filling you want too, I added the lemon juice to give it a little bite.

This tart holds up well and is just as good the next day.

The Almond Flour is a little expensive but it makes a difference in the Crust.

You can serve this with Whipped Cream or Vanilla Custard (I bought mine from IKEA !)

  1. Pre Heat oven to 325 Degrees.
  2. Allow the Butter to soften then mix on a medium speed with the Sugar until light and creamy.
  3. Add the Vanilla and Salt, then add the Flours and mix until everything is incorporated.
  4. Remove 3/4 of a Cup of the Pastry Dough and place in the freezer.
  5. Spray a 10 or 11 inch Tart pan with no stick cooking spray.
  6. Press the remaining Pastry Dough into the Tart pan.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 12 minutes, (it should be just pale golden brown at the top edge).
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Don’t turn the oven off as you are going to bake it again.
  9. Mix the Lemon Juice into the Pie Filling then spoon the Pie Filling into the Pastry Shell and even it out.
  10. Take the frozen Pastry Dough out of the freezer and crumble it evenly over the top.
  11. Place back into the oven and bake for 25 -30 minutes.
  12. Remove and let cool to room temperature, this is best served warm.
  13. Dust with Powdered Sugar and garnish with Fresh Blackberries.
