We Made Room For Dessert 22 - Blueberry Tarts

Summer is the season of blueberries! I have always been a fan of this little round fruit, and I eat a ton of them in the summer.  On cereal, in fruit salads, plain by the handful, and also in desserts!  It's so easy to make these little tarts.

Blueberry Tarts

  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1/2 a lemon, juiced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • water
  • refrigerated pie dough

Preheat oven to 350.
Add first 4 ingredients to a saucepan and heat over medium on the stove.  Add in a bit of water, I usually use about 1/4 of a cup.  Cook for 15-30 minutes until some berries burst and sauce thickens up.  Take off heat and let cool.
To make the tarts like I do, cut 4 rounds out of 1 roll of refrigerated pie dough.  If you don't have a little pie maker like I do, you can also make one big pie.  Just place whole round of pie dough in pie plate.  
Fill dough with blueberry filling, just spoon four equal parts into dough,
Bake for 30-45 minutes until crust is cooked (but not too brown!).  I serve mine with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
