It's the season to find fresh blueberries and try this amazing combination of flavors. Lemon adds a zesty counterpoint to the tart's fruit topping and lovely, buttery crust. —Erin Chilcoat, Somerset, NJ

"fantastic lemon flavor. reminded me of a lemon square. but I altered the topping alittle by cooking 2 cups blueberries, 1/4 tsp cornstarch, l tbsp. sugar, 2 tbsp. water and cooked it down til it was thickened. Then added that to the top. I think its a better topping."

"I loved this dessert when our Country Woman staff voted it best in the magazine's berry recipe contest and have made it at home several times since. I found that it works well to pat the dough into the pan rather than roll it. The tart is pretty and luscious—a wonderful treat when blueberries are in season.
