Raspberry Saskatoon Tarts - Grain free

Grain free Raspberry Saskatoon Tarts

Three years ago we planted a raspberry patch about 15 x 15 in area.  We have been patiently waiting for a good crop and this summer the bushes have finally given us a bounty!  Hubby and I have spent many evenings chatting and picking raspberries (who needs therapy). We are happily eating fresh berries with everything, have frozen some for winter desserts and smoothies and I cannot wait to make jam.  

Recently, my in-laws generously brought us some saskatoons, and I couldn't resist making tarts.  Raspberries and saskatoons go together very well!  If you cannot get saskatoons, blueberries are a great replacement.

 

Raspberry Saskatoon Tarts (Makes 6) 

Pastry

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, diced small
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Filling

  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup saskatoons (substitute with blueberries if necessary)
  • 3 Tbsp liquid honey (plus more for drizzling)

Preheat the oven to 300F.   

Combine all pastry ingredients and cut the butter into the almond flour mixture with a pasty cutter or two knives.  When well combined form into a disk and refrigerate for about an hour. 

Meanwhile combine the raspberries and saskatoons in a bowl, covering with honey to coat.

Remove the pastry from the fridge and divide into six portions.  Press each portion into a muffin tin, lined with a parchment paper liner.  You will have to do some fiddling to get pastry into the parchment, as it will crack.  Work out any cracks and continue to form it into a tart shell with your hands.

Fill the shells slightly over the top, with the saskatoon and raspberry mixture and drizzle with a little more honey.

Place the muffin tin into the oven and cook the tarts for approximately 30-35 minutes.  Remove from the oven  and garnish with your preferred topping: whip cream, ice cream, or coconut whip cream.  Enjoy! 

This pastry is soft and quite crumbly, but delicious!
