philadelphia blueberry-corn tart

As soon as I saw the picture in the book that accompanies the recipe for Dorie’s Philadelphia Blueberry-Corn Tart, I knew it would make adorable little tartlets.  When I’m baking for just the two of us, I often like things that can be assembled “to order.”  This tart, with its whipped cream-cream cheese filling and and dark purple blueberry and sweet corn topping, sounded like maybe it wouldn’t take well to four days in the fridge as we whittled down a large version.

Once you have your tart shell(s) made and baked, you can power off the oven because the filling is no-bake and comes together quickly.  Even the jam only takes a few minutes on the stovetop.  I left the fresh rosemary out of the jam, and rather than using lemon zest and juice, I used a splash of OJ.  Also, some of the reports from the last posting date noted that the jam was a little loose, so I put in a touch of cornstarch to make sure it wouldn’t run too much.  This is not have the feel of a full-on hefty cheesecake…in fact, the filling is light and delicate and has the right amount of tang for the sweet crust and fruity (corny!) topping.  Perfect for exactly this time of the year.

  3. Your tarts look perfect. Adding the cornstarch was a great idea. I will do that next time.

  4. Your tart is adorable! I didn’t bake this one-couldn’t get past the fresh corn, even though I like to combine blueberries with cornbread. May have to make a smallish version with just the blueberries.

  5. It is adorable as a mini! And everything is so beautifully contained – serving slices of the larger tart was a bit messy.

  6. I love your presentation and that you made a tartlet! So elegant all around!
