I am absolutely crazy about this dessert!  It is so simple to make, I actually made it and baked it while I was preparing our dinner the other night.  When my sous chef dish-washing mom and the Chief realized there was something in the oven they both got pretty excited.  I haven’t been baking much lately and so a fresh blueberry tart was a huge hit!

What I really like about this recipe is that it is low sugar and high on berry flavor.  I started with the berries, a little corn starch and a little white sugar mixed together and spooned into the bottom of these little glass tart dishes.

I placed 6  small  4 1/2″ tart dishes on a baking sheet and it is a good thing I did!  These little rascals spilled a little juice over the edge as they bubbled and baked.

They only take 20 minutes to bake and are ready to eat after just cooling a bit.

Just because we think everything goes better with real whipped cream I served with a dollop on the side.

Blueberries are plentiful this time of the year and very good for you. I started Googling nutritional information to share and let me just say – there is a ton of it out there and it is all good!

Hope you have a berry good week!
