    A refreshing yet richly flavored blueberry curd, made with fresh blueberries and orange juice, fills this sweet shortcrust pastry. Topped with meringue that is torched to perfection, and some fresh fruit – you’ll want to make sure you have extra tarts, because everyone will be asking for more! Also, the beautiful natural dark purple color of these tarts makes them a show stopper!  It’s funny, because as a food blogger, we always test our recipes ahead of time. So that means that even though, for example. Valentine’s day is February 14th – I was making and testing all the pink…

If you’ve been following me for a bit now, you know I LOVE my apple and pumpkin desserts. However, I wanted to go in a different direction with this recipe, and shine a light on some fruits that usually look great as…

    Could you tell yet that tarts are my favorite dessert? Well, if not, here is another one to prove it! A classic lemon meringue pie…but in a tart… with a sweet shortcrust pastry shell, a tart lemon curd, and a perfectly sweet and toasted meringue. Served cold, this is a fantastic dessert for a hot summer day, bursting with lemon-y freshness. The great thing is you can do so much with the leftover lemon curd too.
