For the Dough:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup ice water

For the Filling:

  • 2 cups fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

For the Glaze:


Step 1: Prepare the Dough

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the cold cubed butter and using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Slowly drizzle in the ice water and mix until the dough comes together. Form it into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Step 2: Make the Filling

In another bowl, gently mix together the fresh berries, sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch until the berries are well coated. Set aside to let the flavors meld together while you work on the dough.

Step 3: Roll out the Dough

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it soften for a few minutes. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a circle about 1/8 inch thick. Carefully transfer the dough to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Step 4: Assemble the Luminous Beings

Spoon the berry filling onto the center of the dough, leaving a 2-inch border around the edges. Gently fold the edges of the dough over the filling to create a rustic, free-form tart. Press lightly to seal any openings.

Step 5: Bake and Glaze

Bake the tart in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the crust turns golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. In the meantime, prepare the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Drizzle the glaze over the slightly cooled tart.

Step 6: Indulge and Enjoy!

Once the glaze has set, it’s time to dig in! Serve your Wye Hill Luminous Beings warm or at room temperature, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Each bite is a burst of fruity goodness that will transport you to dessert heaven.

So, what are you waiting for? Gather the ingredients, put on some music, and get ready to create an enchanting dessert experience with your homemade Wye Hill Luminous Beings. You’ll surely impress your friends and family with this delightful recipe that shines brighter than the stars!
