This is just a little bit of a departure from my blueberry pie. It’s made to stay together in tart form, ready for a dollop of whipped cream. I’m giving you the gluten free option, but you can find a non-gluten free tart crust option here, or use a regular pie crust 

The magic to the blueberry filling is mascarpone. It’s mixed in with half of the filling in a food processor until fairly smooth then added into the rest of the whole berry filling.

Just when I thought I might be done with blueberry pie, (my favorite), this idea came to mind. Notice in the picture, it actually does stay together, unlike a blueberry pie. This makes it especially nice for a small dinner party or brunch item. It’s not too sweet, but just enough of a dessert to be satisfying. I also like tarts over pies when I want a neat slice. I use this tart pan.

You could add in some homemade whipped cream. I suggest this recipe for a stable whipped cream which will stay put, under a day’s refrigeration. You can skip the decorative crust on top if you want to put whipped cream.

The recipe will make a little more tart dough than needed for a 9 inch tart, and enough for a 9 inch pie, bottom crust only.

I usually make a small tart as a taster when I make a big one, and there will be enough dough for that.

It may seem odd to bring you blueberries in December, but it’s a nice addition to your dessert table. I’ve added  in a cinnamon stick and freshly ground nutmeg, which pushes forth some Christmas flavor.

Aside from blueberries, we also traditionally have these grain free coconut cupcakes at Christmas time.

Sometimes I make smaller tarts, which are nice when serving individually. These are five inch tart pans.
