Prep time:  20 mins
Cook time:  35 mins
Total time:  55 mins
Serves: 8


  • 1½ cups white whole wheat or all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ¾ cup cold unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch cubes (do not use margarine or butter substitute)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup Norm’s Farms Blueberry Elderberry Preserves
  • 1 tablespoon coarse white sparkling sugar


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. In the bowl of a food processor, place flour, ¾ cup of the powdered sugar and ½ teaspoon salt. Cover; process until well blended. Add butter and 1½ teaspoons of the vanilla extract. Blend in the food processor with on-and-off pulses until mixture is consistency of fine crumbs.
  2. Press 1½ cups of the mixture evenly in ungreased 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Bake 12 minutes and let cool on a cooling rack for about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir preserves to soften; set aside.
  4. Spread preserves evenly over cooled crust to within ⅜-inch of edge. Sprinkle remaining crust mixture evenly over top, covering preserves completely. Pat gently; sprinkle with white sparkling sugar.
  5. Bake 18 to 26 minutes longer or until edges are golden brown. Cool 25 minutes on cooling rack; remove side of pan. Using sharp knife, cut into 8 triangular wedges. Serve with fresh whipped cream, if desired.
