Looking for a 4th of July Menu? This would be my pick! Enjoy!

Makes 6 tarts


For Pastry:
1 ¾ cups (210 g) flour
2 tbsp (25 g) sugar
½ tsp (2.5 ml) salt
10 tbsp (150 g) cold salted butter*, diced
6-7 tbsp (70ml-85ml) very cold water

*NOTE: use salted only if you are in the USA. I really like the Land o Lakes Brand for these. Otherwise outside the USA salted butter tends to be too salty and you are better off with unsalted. ☺ Confusing, I know, but just want to make sure I take of all my international friends and make sure you guys don’t end up with a salty tart!

For the filling
2 cups (300 g) blueberries
2 tbsp (25 g) sugar
2 tbsp (15 g) flour
2 tbsp (30 ml) lemon juice
6 tbsp (90 ml) blueberry jam
2 tbsp (30 g) butter
Powdered sugar for garnishing

You will need:
4 Inch Tarte tins with removable bottoms “Deep”

2 Inch Star Cookie Cutter

Place flour, sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to combine. Then add butter, pulsing until a coarse meal develops. Then slowly add water one tbsp at a time until a dough forms.

Turn dough out into a floured surface. Form into a ball, press into an oval and cut in half (horizontally) then in thirds (vertically) this way you will have 6 pieces of dough.

Roll out to about 6 in circle. Place tartelette tin on top upside down. Draw a circle around the tin with a pairing knife, allowing a 1″ border.

Press dough into tin, folding over edges into the tin to create a thicker crust along the side. Trim dough so that it is flush with the top of the tin. Repeat the process for all 6 tins.

Roll out the dough that is left to ¼ inch thick. Cut out 6 stars.

Place tins and stars on a parchment lined rimmed baking sheet. Tins on one side tarts on the other, and pop in the freezer for 15 mins, or refrigerate for 30 mins.

Then place blueberries in a bowl and toss well with lemon juice, sugar and flour.

Remove baking sheet from the freezer and fill each one with 1 tbsp jam, a few spoons of berries (don’t fill to the top, stop about ¾ way or it will over flow with juice while baking) then top with 1 pat of butter.

Place in oven for 16 mins. Then remove the stars if they are golden brown, otherwise bake for another minute or so. Then continue baking the tarts for another 20 minutes or until tart crust is golden brown and berries emit their juice and are bubbling.

Allow tarts to cool completely. I think these are best served a room temperature or chilled.

Moments before serving dust a tiny amount of powdered sugar on the centers of the stars.

Serve the tarts with a dollop of homemade whipped cream in the center, and top with a star.


Serves 6

1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream
1 tbsp (7 g) powdered sugar
½ tsp (2.5 ml) vanilla extract

Combine ingredients in a bowl and whip with an electric mixer until slightly stiff peaks form. This can be made the day ahead and covered and placed in the fridge.
Just whisk it up with a spoon before serving.
