Why this recipe works
The best part of this recipe, it’s really hard to mess it up!
This is one of the easiest dessert recipes on my blog! Despite its simplicity, it has a ton of flavor and texture! The pastry has delicious buttery flakes, while the berries (together with ice cream) provide the creaminess. You also will have a complex sweet and tart flavor combination from the baked mixed berries.
How to make it
Before we start making the recipe, we need to thaw the pastry dough. Just leave it on the counter for about 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400˚F, line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, mix together frozen mixed berries, lemon juice, lemon zest, maple syrup, and cornstarch (Photos 1-4).
Roll out the thawed dough and cut it in 4 rectangles. Place each piece on a baking sheet 2 inches apart (Photo 7).
Scoop the berry mixture between 4 pastry sheets, leaving about ½-1 inch on the edges. Then fold the edges over the berries (Photos 8-9).
Brush the edges with egg wash (Photo 10).
Bake the tarts at 400˚F for about 20-25 minutes or until the dough is golden/brown color.
Serve it warm with a scoop of homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.
Tips for best results
Puff Pastry. When thawing the dough, don’t try to unfold it right away, or it will crack. Let it sit on the counter for about 20-30 minutes, then carefully start to unfold it step by step. Also, make sure it doesn’t get too warm, otherwise it won’t rise.
Cornstarch. I would not recommend to skip this ingredient. The berries will produce a lot of juices while baking and will be too runny without the cornstarch.
Options and Substitutions
Mixed Berries. I like to use a mix of frozen berries, as I always keep them in my freezer. So, when I want to make the dessert I have them on hand. You also can you any fresh berries you have at home.
Maple Syrup. If you don’t have maple syrup, you can use honey and regular sugar instead.
Egg. If you don’t want to use eggs in this recipe, you can use melted butter or milk as “an egg wash”.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Can I make these tarts ahead of the time? Yes, but they won’t taste the same. I always like to make this recipe right before I want to serve it. This way it will be warm to serve with a scoop of ice cream on top and the pastry will be perfectly flaky.
Can I reheat it? You can reheat it at 325˚F for about 15 minutes. However, when you reheat dough it won’t be as flaky as freshly baked.
