Blueberry and Lemon Mini Tarts Recipe

These Blueberry and Lemon Mini Tarts are bite-sized treats featuring a buttery pastry crust filled with a luscious blueberry and lemon curd filling.





  • Step 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Step 2.

    In a mixing bowl, combine 200g of all-purpose flour, 100g of cold unsalted butter (cubed), 2 tbsp of granulated sugar, and a pinch of salt. Use your fingers or a pastry cutter to work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Step 3.

    Add 2-3 tbsp of ice water, one tablespoon at a time, and mix until the dough comes together. Shape the dough into a ball, flatten it into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Step 4.

    On a floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to a thickness of about 1/8 inch. Cut out circles slightly larger than the wells of a mini tart pan.
  • Step 5.

    Gently press the dough circles into the wells of the tart pan, trimming any excess dough.
  • Step 6.

    In a small saucepan, heat 150g of fresh blueberries and the juice of 1 lemon over medium heat. Cook until the blueberries burst and release their juices.
  • Step 7.

    In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 large egg yolks, 100g of granulated sugar, and the zest of 1 lemon until well combined.
  • Step 8.

    Gradually pour the hot blueberry mixture into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly to prevent curdling.
  • Step 9.

    Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens into a lemon curd consistency.
  • Step 10.

    Fill the tart shells with the blueberry lemon curd.
  • Step 11.

    Bake the mini tarts in the preheated oven for about 15-18 minutes, or until the edges of the tarts are golden and the filling is set.
  • Step 12.

    Remove the tarts from the oven and let them cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Step 13.

    Serve the Blueberry and Lemon Mini Tarts as delightful bite-sized desserts.
