When blueberries are in season, we're all looking for extra ways to enjoy them. So when the blueberries are plentiful and the price is a bargain, pick up an extra pint and make some of the best Blueberry Tarts you'll ever taste.
What You'll Need
- 3 cups fresh blueberries, plus extra for garnish, if desired
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 package (6 shells) graham cracker tart shells (see Note)
- Whipped cream or whipped topping for garnish (optional)
What to Do
- In a blender, puree 1-1/2 cups blueberries and the orange juice. In a small saucepan, combine pureed blueberry mixture, sugar, and cornstarch.
- Cook over medium heat until thickened; remove blueberry sauce from heat and let cool.
- Place about 1/4 cup fresh blueberries in each tart shell. Completely cover fresh berries with thickened, cooled sauce.
- Serve plain or top tarts with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or whipped topping and some fresh berries.
If you want, you can use shortcake shells instead of graham cracker shells.
