Laura Olin’s Grandmother’s Berry Tart Recipe

Use blueberries, raspberries, or really any combo of berries you like:

– 2/3 cup (5 oz) butter or margarine (one stick and a bit of another)
– 6 Tbsp sugar
– 1 egg
– 1 cup flour
– 1 tsp baking powder

– 2 cups blueberries, not exact measure, can mix other berries, too
– 6 Tbsp sugar

Preheat oven to 400 F. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy (just mixing well with a spatula works, too), add egg and mix well. Add baking powder to the flour and mix into the margarine/butter/egg mixture.

Grease pie pan or similar dish and spread mixture onto the bottom, spreading all the way to the sides. Spread blueberries on top of the mixture and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400F for about 30 minutes, checking now and then so that the sides don’t burn.
