The Technique

Blackberry Pie

Every summer there was a spot in our neighborhood where wild blackberries emerged simply ripe for the picking. We would gather a basketful & pass them to my mother who would always create something wonderful with them. Sometimes it was a cobbler or a crisp but blackberry pie made an appearance once or twice, too. Blackberry Crumble Tartlets highlight one of the most iconic summer berries. Fresh lemon & a bit of sugar are all that’s needed to allow these beauties to shine. The versatile cream cheese pastry blends together quickly offering lovely texture to them while the Lemon-Cornmeal Streusel provides an effortless finishing touch. Preparing a smaller version of this classic pie makes them ideal to serve when entertaining. Learn how to make a summer dessert everyone will rave over.

makes 2 dozen

1/2 {8-oz} package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup plain yellow cornmeal
Lemon-Cornmeal Streusel
1 {12-oz} container fresh blackberries 
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch

Beat the cream cheese & the butter with a stand mixer until smooth. Scrape down the bowl sides with a rubber spatula. Blend in the flour & the cornmeal on Low speed until a dough forms. Divide the mixture into 24 pieces & roll into balls. Press the dough balls into each space of a lightly greased 24-cup miniature muffin tin. Press the mixture evenly on the bottom & up the sides. Chill 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the Lemon-Cornmeal Streusel as directed. Meanwhile, crush the blackberries with a fork in a medium bowl to help release some of the juices. Add the sugar & the lemon juice stirring well to combine. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the fruit & fold it into the mixture until blended. Portion the fruit between the dough in the muffin cups. Crumble the Lemon-Cornmeal Streusel, breaking apart the clumps, over the fruit. Place the filled muffin tin on a half sheet pan. Bake 36 to 38 minutes or until the top is puffed & the filling is bubbly over the tartlets. Cool 5 minutes. Gently loosen the tartlets from the pan sides. Carefully remove them from the pan & place on a wire rack. Cool completely. Serve warm, cold or at room temperature.
