Perfect Mother’s Day Berry Tart…& it’s Gluten-Free!

My mom loves blueberry muffins. If she had to choose between a blueberry muffin and a rich, decadent chocolate creation, it would be no contest in favor of the berries. In fact, the only thing she might pick over a blueberry muffin is a date with George Clooney.

Naturally, that means we made blueberry muffins any time it was a special day for her. And that goes double for Mother’s Day. If it was Mother’s Day, my brother and I were: 1. Dressing in a suit and tie for church. And 2. Making blueberry muffins for breakfast. Until last year.

We had Mother’s Day down to a science. We picked beautiful berries at the supermarket for the muffins and ironed the wrinkles out of our suits. But then we got bad news from the doctor: my mom has celiac disease.  People with celiac disease can’t eat gluten. Gluten is in wheat flour. And wheat flour is in blueberry muffins.

The diagnosis was a relief for her, because it explained mystery stomach aches and other symptoms she had been experiencing for years. But it meant she needed to find a new favorite dessert.

And it meant we needed to scramble. There were only 2 days left until her breakfast. And gorgeous blueberries were just sitting in our fridge.

If one berry is good, then 3 are better. And the best way of all to eat 3 berries is floating on top of lake of creamy vanilla pudding. It was time to make a berry tart.

Gluten intolerance has risen dramatically in the United States over the past few years. There are a whole host of products made for people who can’t eat wheat flour, including pie crusts. We picked up a box of Perfect Pie Crust on the recommendation of a friend, and it was great. Of course, this recipe turns out great with a non-gluten free crust too.

Using easy, prepackaged ingredients, we were able to whip together a delicious berry tart in no time. Mom could not have been happier. Its the perfect end to a  Mother’s Day meal. Until George Clooney comes in dessert form.


  1. 1 Premade pie crust
  2. 1 Package Instant Vanilla Pudding
  3. Mix of blueberries or other fruit to top tart.


  1. Prepare the pie crust according to the directions. Bake and let cool till ready to serve. If you don’t have a tart pan, a pie plate works just fine too.
  2. Make the pudding according to the directions. We left out a little bit of liquid to keep it thick. You could also mix in Cool Whip to make a light and airy topping.
  3. Just before serving, spread the pudding on the pie crust and top with berries.

Try different fruit and pudding combos. White Chocolate flavor pudding with raspberries is another family favorite.
