LEMONY BLUEBERRY CHEESE TART

Blueberries at their summery best in tart.

Blueberries may be described approvingly as nutrient-dense, and low-calorie, but most of us are just pleased that at the peak of their season they taste so juicily good. Fresh fruit can be a no-work dessert eaten as is, sprinkled with sugar, drizzled with cream. Yet it takes only a little more work to turn the fruit into a seemingly dressed-up dessert as in this blueberry cheese tart

You can buy the pie crust ready made, and the lemon curd, too. But the creamy curd, a smooth, thick sauce sold in the jams and jellies sections of supermarkets, is simplicity itself to make and the homemade version has a taste as fresh as the berries.

(Preparation 10 minutes, baking and cooling 20 minutes, chilling time 2 hours)

Ingredients

  • 9-inch frozen pie crust, thawed
  • 8-ounce container (1 cup) mascarpone cheese,
  • or 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 5 T. lemon curd (recipe follows)
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

Method:

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Press the pie crust into a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom, or leave in the original aluminum pie tin. With the tines of a fork, pierce the bottom and sides.

Bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes; refrigerate until cool, about 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, stir together cheese and 3 tablespoons of the lemon curd until smooth. (If mixture is too thick to spread, stir in a small amount of milk.)

Spread mixture in the bottom of the cooled tart shell.

In a medium-size bowl, gently stir the blueberries and the remaining 2 table-spoons lemon curd until thoroughly com- bined.

Spoon the blueberries evenly over the mascarpone layer.

Cover and chill 2 hours

To serve, remove the sides of the tart pan, if used; cut into wedges.

Makes 8 servings.
