Blueberry Custard Tarts

I bought some fresh blueberries on Sunday and was pondering what to make. I made fresh blackberry muffins this morning for our workers in the bathroom (changing tub for shower) and they need their energy. So…… of course, tarts.

 

  • Make the pastry of your choice (or store bought if you can’t ).
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • pinch of salt
  • 5 1/2 cups blueberries

In a large bowl whip the eggs and add the sugar, flour, milk, vanilla, lime juiceĀ and salt, mixing well. Gently fold in the blueberries. Pour in the tart crusts.

 

Topping

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • I tsp. grated lime zest

In a small bowl, combine the flour, lime zest and sugar mixing well. Cut in the cold butter until crumble. Sprinkle over each tart and bake for 25-35 minutes in a 350 oven. Cool on a wire rack.
