Berry Streusel Tart | 2 parts | Jam + Streusel

Cooks in 45 Difficulty Easy

Berry Streusel Tart: This is your new go-to dessert when you need something quick and delicious. It is an easy recipe for beginner bakers looking to make something impressive!

The best part of this dessert: it is made of two main parts. One is the streusel recipe that is used for the crust and topping. One is the filling, made with jam and frozen berries.

What kind of jam do I need?

You need about 7 ounces. A little over or a little under is OK! You just need enough to cover the bottom of the tart. The flavor is up to you. I picked Washington’s Bow Hill’s Blueberry Confiture.

What kind of berries do I need?

Same with the jam, pick whatever you desire or have on hand. I used Washington’s Remlinger Farm’s Marion Blackberries. Use frozen berries first. Only use fresh if you need to. You need about 1 cup, a little more or less is OK.

How much streusel do I need?

My recipe x1.5. Don’t want to do the math? Here is what you need:

  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon white sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 12 tablespoon unsalted, cubed butter (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • Combine all in a standing kitchen aid mixer with the paddle attachment.
  • Mix until large clumps form (see pic below) About 3-5 minutes on low speed
Mix until large clumps form

How much streusel do I use for the crust and how much do I use for the topping?

After you make the streusel, save about 1 cup for the topping. The remaining, press into the bottom. First, grease a 9 inch round tart shell with non-aerosol cooking spray. Don’t have spray? Use a paper towel and dab it with veg oil. Don’t have veg oil? Use melted butter with a pastry brush. Just get it greased!

Where do you buy a tart shell?

I purchased mine a loooonnnggg time ago in a small cooking store. Mine is 9 inch round with a removable bottom. Here is a similar one on Amazon. I recommend buying a tart shell and not using a pie pan. If you have a tart shell that is slightly smaller or bigger, that is fine

STEPS IN BAKING A BERRY STREUSEL TART

  • Grease your tart shell first, set aside
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil and place greased tart shell on top
  • Make oat streusel recipe and set 1 cup aside for the topping
  • Press the remaining oat streusel into the bottom and side of the tart shell
  • Add 7 oz of jam to the bottom, spread all over the bottom
  • Add 1 cup frozen berries on top of the jam
  • Add the 1 cup oat streusel on top
  • Bake for 45 minutes. The jam and berries will look bubbly.

Can I make this ahead?

Yes! You can make this the day before you plan on serving it. It is delicious with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Keep it in the fridge, covered. Cut it into 8 pieces.
