Apricot and Berry Tart


This summer fruit tart has an easy-to-make crust that you can press into the pan, rather than roll out.

  • 6 apricots (about 12 ounces), pitted and cut into eighths
  • 3/4 cup assorted berries, such as raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries
  • 8 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whipped cream (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees, and have ready an ungreased 8-inch tart pan with removable bottom. In a medium bowl, toss together the apricots, berries, and 4 tablespoons sugar. Set aside.

  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, cornmeal, 3 tablespoons sugar, salt, butter, egg yolk, and vanilla; pulse until dough begins to come together. Press dough into tart pan; set pan on a baking sheet. Bake until golden and slightly puffy, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Using a spatula, gently flatten bottom of crust.

  3. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Arrange fruit in crust. Bake 30 minutes; sprinkle with remaining tablespoon sugar. Bake until apricots are juicy and tender, about 15 minutes more. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Remove tart from frame; serve with whipped cream, if desired.
