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.
Then I mixed up a topping of flour, oats, brown sugar and butter. I used the pastry blender but I could have also crumble this in my food processor or with my fingers!
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!
