Lemon Blueberry Tart

You'll love this amazing combination of flavors. Lemon adds a zesty counterpoint to the tart's fruit topping and lovely, buttery crust. —Erin Chilcoat, Somerset, New Jersey

    12 servings


  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice

  • 4 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • Dash salt
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberry spreadable fruit


  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk the egg yolk, water and vanilla; add to crumb mixture. Stir until dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

  • In a small bowl, beat the filling ingredients; pour into crust. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack.
  • For topping, microwave blueberries and spreadable fruit on high for 1-2 minutes or until bubbly around the edges; stir. Cool for 5-10 minutes. Gently spoon over filling. Refrigerate until chilled.

    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.Ann Kaiser, EditorCountry Woman
