RECIPE

BERRY FILLING
- 4 to 5 cups of fresh or frozen berries (if using frozen you will need more thickener)
- 2/3 cup of sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/4 cup of flour
- Instant Clear Jel, quick-cooking tapioca, or another thickener.

CRUST
- 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
- 1 1/4 teaspoons of salt
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) of chilled butter (or lard)
- Up to 6 tablespoons of ice water

Use your torture device of Sauron (food processor) to chop the butter into the flour and salt until it has a grainy, sand-like consistency. Add ice water one or two tablespoons at a time as needed.

Flour your workspace and your rolling pin then roll out the dough for the tarts one handful at a time. Place a spoonful of the berry mixture in the center and have fun trying to seal it all up! You can make it a dumpling shape or more of an open top. Use a fork to seal the edges. Brush the crust with milk and sprinkle with sugar, if desired.

Place in Smaug's mouth (the oven) and bake at 450 F for 10 minutes, then 350 F for about 30 minutes, or until the crust is a golden brown.
