  1. Preheat oven to 450°. On a work surface, unroll pastry sheets. Cut 24 circles with a floured 3-in. round cookie cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary. Press circles onto bottoms and partway up sides of ungreased muffin cups, smoothing edges. Prick bottoms generously with a fork.
  2. Bake 5-7 minutes or light golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and vanilla until blended; beat in 1/4 cup lemon curd. Fold in a third of the whipped topping, then fold in remaining topping.
  4. Spoon 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture into each tart shell; top each with 1 teaspoon lemon curd. Top with blueberries; refrigerate until serving. If desired, dust with confectioners' sugar. Yield: 2 dozen.
