Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings 4 servings


Sweet Tart Pastry

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 -1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold water more or less based on the humidity


  • 2 cups diced rhubarb
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/4-1/2 cup sugar depending upon the sweetness of the strawberries or how tart you want your tart (no pun intended)
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 pinch coarse sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Mae's Crumble Topping

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • pinch of coarse sea salt



  • Using a food processor or a dough cutter (or a fork), combine unsalted butter, flour, sugar and salt until loosely combined
  • Slowly add the cold water and watch until it begins to clump together. Once this happens stop pouring water and stop the machine or mixing.
  • Roll the dough into a ball and then into a thick disk shape. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to a day.
  • Roll out on a pastry sheet or counter top using a dusting of flour and sugar. Roll out until the proper size has been achieved for your tart pan.
  • Rub unsalted butter over the pan's sides and bottom to prevent the tart from sticking.
  • Place the dough in the pan. Gently press the dough into the bottom corners and then using a rolling pin, roll it across the top of the pan to create a clean, even edge


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Combine the chopped rhubarb and strawberries into a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, flour, nutmeg and salt. Mix to combine and set aside while you make the crumble topping and roll out the dough.
  • Once the dough is rolled out, place the filling into the tart pan - filling as much or as little as you prefer.
  • Dot the tart with 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter.

Mae's Crumble Topping

  • Melt the butter in a sauce pan. While the butter is melting (low-medium heat), mixing the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl - oatmeal, flour, sugars and salt.
  • Once the butter has melted, turn off the stovetop and remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the dry ingredients to the butter and stir to combine.
  • Place the topping on top of the filling and the butter dotting the top.
  • Place into the oven for 30-40 minutes. Remove once tart edges are nicely brown. Enjoy warm with a dollop of vanilla gelato or ice cream and a hot cup of tea.
