So, now that I've gone on and on about eating whole unprocessed foods, let's slip in a treat. I made these about a month ago and they barely survived the first 30 minutes. :) Delicious!!
You should 100% take a few minutes to make these - but don't hide any under your couch. :)
Blueberry Breakfast Tarts
What's In It:*
1 1/2 c blueberries
1/4 c sugar
1 T lemon juice
1 T cornstarch
2 pie crusts**
What To Do With It:
Stir together berries, sugar, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in cornstarch and continue to simmer for another 5 minutes or so until the mixture gets nice and thick. If it's too thick, add a little water. Once you reached a spreadable consistency, set it aside to cool.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet.
Roll out half of your dough into a thin rectangle. Cut into smaller rectangles about 2.5 in x 4 in - the size here isn't really important, just however big you want your tarts.
Place half of your rectangles on the baking sheet (or as many as will fit - I had to do 2 batches)
Take a heaping tablespoon of blueberry filling and spread onto each rectangle on the baking sheet.
Top each rectangle on the baking sheet with another rectangle of dough. Slightly crimp the edges with a fork.
Sprinkle with a bit of sugar if desired.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges just start to turn a light brown.
Allow to cool on the pan for a few minutes before serving.
**If you are really crunched for time or just don't have any blueberries, you can always use jam as the filling instead. I ran out of blueberry filling and I still had 6 rectangles left, so I used some homemade peachsauce (like applesauce but made with peaches) as the filling...it was fantastic!
