Blueberry Cream Cheese Tart

Photo by:

Serve this in the summer when blueberries are at their peak.

Yield: Makes 8 servings

INGREDIENTS

For the pastry:

  • 1¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 6 tbsp cold butter, diced
  • 1 large egg yolk

For the filling:

  • 4 oz (115g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup superfine sugar
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • Pinch grated nutmeg
  • 12 oz (350g) fresh blueberries
  • Confectioners sugar, for garnish

Special equipment:

  • 9 in (23cm) tart pan with a removable bottom

Directions

 

 

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). To make the dough, stir the flour and sugar together in a bowl. Add the butter and rub it with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. Mix the egg yolk with 3 tbsp cold water, add the flour mixture, and stir.

2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 1/8 in (3mm) round circle and use to line a 9in (23cm) tart pan with a removable bottom. Prick it lightly all over with a fork. Chill for 30 minutes. Line the dough with wax paper and fill with baking beans. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the paper and baking beans and bake for 10 minutes more, until the crust is golden and crisp. Remove from the oven. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (180°C).

3. Beat the cream cheese, sugar, sour cream, eggs, lemon zest, and nutmeg with an electric mixer until well combined. Spread in the tart shell and top with the blueberries. Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until the filling is just set. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Remove the sides of the pan. Sift confectioner's sugar over the top, slice, and serve.

Variation:

Raspberry Cream Cheese Tart: Use the same quantity of fresh raspberries in place of the blueberries.

Notes

Prepare ahead: The tart can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.
