Blueberry & Ginger Tart Recipe

Blueberry & Ginger Tart Recipe

Wow! That’s what you’ll hear when you bring this showstopping tart to the table. A hint of mint and lime, luscious blueberries, pleasant ginger and a buttery crust—it’s tough to stop at just one slice. —Karen Hicks, Mabelvale, Arkansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:14 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, divided
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh mint
  • 3-1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed
  • Whipped cream

Directions

  • 1. In a food processor, combine the flour, brown sugar and butter; cover and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Remove and set aside 1 cup for topping. Stir 1 tablespoon lime juice into remaining pastry. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 11-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, cornstarch, ginger and mint. Add blueberries and remaining lime juice; toss to coat. Transfer to crust. Sprinkle with reserved topping.
  • 3. Bake at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden brown. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool completely on a wire rack. Serve with whipped cream. Yield: 14 servings.
