SIS Simple is Smart Tip: 

If you don’t have time to make the pie crusts purchase two unformed pie crusts.  The refrigerated section of your local supermarket usually has boxes with two pie crusts per box.   Simply unroll the pie crust and use it in the recipe.

The day before you want to make the tarts make one recipe of my No Fail Pie Crusts.   Form the pie dough into two discs, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to use. 

What Do I need for my Blueberry Apple Rustic Tart?

In addition to the pie crusts, your Blueberry Apple Rustic Tart has only six ingredients.  

  • Apples
  • Blueberries
  • Sugar
  • Flour
  • Sour Cream
  • Lemon Juice

Once assembled you’ll need a little heavy cream and sparkling sugar.  These are optional and an egg wash and regular granulated sugar are fine.

Let’s Make the Rustic Blueberry Apple Tart.

  • Preheat the oven to 350-degrees.
  • Mix the sugar, flour, and cinnamon.  Add the sour cream and lemon juice.  Mix well. 
  • Add the blueberries and peeled cored, and sliced apples.  Mix and set aside.
  • Roll out each disc of pie dough into a 10-inch circle.  The circle doesn’t have to be perfect.  Place the circles on a parchment-lined baking sheet. 
  • Divide the blueberry apple filling between the two pie dough discs.  Place the filling in the middle of the disc. 
  • Fold the edges of the disc up over the filling to form a rustic collar.  The center of the filling is open. 
  • Brush the pie dough collar with some heavy cream or egg wash and sprinkle with sparkling or granulated sugar. 
  • Bake for 30 – 45 minutes in the preheated oven.  The crust should be golden brown and the center thick and bubbly. 
  • Slice each tart into four pieces and serve a-la-mode.
