Frugal Friday

This is a great little recipe that I use for potlucks and gatherings.  Not only is it frugal on the pocketbook, but it's also frugal on time.  Everyone loves it and is amazed by how easily it comes together.  I don't remember where I got this recipe, but it's not originally mine.  Enjoy!

Berry Tart
  • Ready made pastry pie crust
  • 1 (16 oz) bag of frozen mixed berries, thawed and drained
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Place thawed pie crust into a 9 inch pie plate.
  3. Combine berries, sugar, and cornstarch.  Pour into crust and dot with butter.
  4. Bake for 40 min until golden and bubbly.  Cool @ room temperature.
The original recipe calls for placing a second pie crust on the top, fluting and trimming it.  However, I've found that there's not enough berries for a second crust and it's very tasty with just the bottom crust made into a tart.  

This is so easy and so delicious.  It rotates through our menu regularly.
