Prepare the compote on the stove while the tart is baking. Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the berries have begun releasing their juices- about ten minutes.

Take off heat and let cool to room temperature before spooning over the tart. If you prefer, spoon berry compote over the cooled tart and serve with powdered sugar over top.
