What you need to make this Blueberry Tart
Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheet: It will need to be thawed before using.
Tips for making this tart recipe
- Make sure the puff pastry sheet is thawed and at room temperature for easy rolling.
- Score around the edges of the puff pastry with a knife and then pierce the tart with fork tines all over the tart. Don’t worry about doing too many tine marks, they only prevent your tart from puffing up all the way leaving room for your filing form into the tart.
Make this recipe your way
- Cook the blueberries on the stove with a little sugar to break them down and thicken them. Serve them over top of the blueberry tart instead of fresh berries.
- Substitute vanilla extract for almond extract and add 1 tbsp lemon juice to the cream cheese mixture.
- If you need to be sugar free, I recommend this brand. You use it at a 1:1 ratio.
- Substitute strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries for the blueberries. Or, use a mixture of your favorite berries.
- Reduced fat cream cheese and reduced fat milk can be substituted for the full fat versions in this recipe.
