Ingredients

  • tart shell 9 inch
  • 5 cups fresh blackberries , not frozen
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice , freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon butter , cold, chopped thinly
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds toasted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 Fahrenheit.
  2. Pre-bake the 9 inch or 9.5 inch tart crust at 400 Fahrenheit for 20 or 30 minutes according to the recipe here (how to make tart shell from scratch).  Let the tart shell cool slightly.

  3. In a bowl, toss 4 cups of blackberries, sugar, flour, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
  4. Spoon this mixture into the cooled tart shell. Top with the remaining 1 cup of blackberries. Sprinkle 1 or 2 tablespoons white sugar over the berries, and then sprinkle thinly chopped cold butter on top, too.
  5. Place the tart on a rimmed baking sheet (to catch any juices) and bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 F until filling starts to bubble.
  6. Take the tart out of the oven, let it cool for about 30 minutes, and top with toasted slivered almonds.
