Goat Cheese and Blackberry Tart

Goat cheese gives this custardy tart a tangy kick. Feel free to replace the blackberries with other berries, peach slices or halved plums. If using frozen berries, don’t thaw them before making the tart—this will keep the juice from bleeding into the crust as it bakes.
