Sweet and Savory Tarts

Tarts! You can have them sweet, savory, salty, buttery, the list goes on and on… Today, I give to you: the tale of two tarts! Our first tart is sweet and tangy. Fresh blueberries meet up with lemon cheese filling for a delicious treat!  Pair this tart with your morning coffee or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a sweet treat.

(Makes 4 generous tarts)

Ingredients: 

1 pre-made pie crust

1 C. fresh blueberries

1 C. Softened cream cheese

2 Tbsp Lemon curd

1 Tbsp Powdered sugar

Blueberry tart

Directions: 

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl mix together the cream cheese, lemon curd and powder sugar.  Roll out your pie crust into a a rectangle. Then begin cutting out smaller rectangles to the size of 4″ x 5″. Place a small dollop of the cheese mixture to the center of the small rectangle. Spread the mixture to 1/4″ of all the sides. Now add the blueberries to each tart. Gently fold the edges in on the pie crust to provide a “crust”. Bake until golden brown. Place on wire rack to cool. Then enjoy till your hearts content!!!

Savory tart

Now for the savory tart! Follow the same directions for the pie crust shaping of the tarts. Your toppings can be as varied as your like. Here we used asparagus, artichoke hearts, ground turkey, brie and Parmesan. Simply layer your toppings. Bake on a sheet pan until golden brown. Then enjoy!!!
