By EatingWell Test Kitchen, Patsy Jamieson, EatingWell.com The secret to this free-form tart is the layer of ground almonds under the berries: it thickens the juices, prevents a soggy crust and delivers an exquisite background flavor for the intense berries.

Recipe Ingredients for Rustic Berry Tart

3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon sugar for sprinkling
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold butter
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/4 cup ice water, plus more as needed
1 large egg, separated
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons sugar,
4 cups mixed berries
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons strawberry jam

Recipe Directions for Rustic Berry Tart

  1. To prepare crust: Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs with a few larger pieces. Add oil and stir with a fork to blend. Mix 1/4 cup water, egg yolk and 1 teaspoon lemon juice (or vinegar) in a measuring cup. Add just enough of the egg yolk mixture to the flour mixture, stirring with a fork, until the dough clumps together. (Add a little water if the dough seems too dry.) Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead several times. Form the dough into a ball, then flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  2. Preheat oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and coat with cooking spray.

  3. To prepare filling & assemble tart: Spread almonds in a small baking pan. Bake until light golden and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Let cool. Combine whole-wheat flour, 1/4 cup sugar (or Splenda) and the toasted almonds in a food processor or blender; process until the almonds are ground.

  4. Roll the dough into a rough 13- to 14-inch circle on a lightly floured surface, about 1/4 inch thick. Roll it back over the rolling pin, brush off excess flour, and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Spread the almond mixture over the pastry, leaving a 2-inch border all around. Toss berries with the remaining 3 tablespoons sugar (or Splenda) and 2 teaspoons lemon juice in a large bowl; spoon over the almond mixture. Fold the border up and over the filling, pleating as necessary. Blend the reserved egg white and 1 tablespoon water with a fork; brush lightly over the tart rim. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon sugar.

  5. Bake the tart for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350F and bake until the crust is golden and the juices are bubbling, 30 to 40 minutes. Leaving the tart on the parchment (or foil), carefully slide it onto a wire rack. Let cool.

  6. Shortly before serving, melt jam in a small saucepan over low heat; brush over the berries. Cut the tart into wedges.
