Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12
  • Dough Recipe
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Half and Half (or milk)
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup butter (2 sticks - cut into pieces)
  • Filling Recipe
  • 2 Cups Fresh Blueberries
  • ¼ Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Glaze Recipe
  • ¾ Cup Confectioners' Sugar
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons Milk
  1. Dough Recipe
  2. Whisk 1 egg and the half and half (or milk) in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In the bowl of your food processor add the flour, sugar, salt and one stick of the butter.
  4. Pulse until the butter is fully incorporated into the flour then add the other stick of butter.
  5. Pulse until that stick is blended in and the consistency is pebbly. It won't really look like dough at this point.
  6. Dump the contents of the food processor into the bowl with the blended egg and half and half.
  7. Stir until everything comes together in a sticky mass.
  8. Knead the dough a few times until it comes together.
  9. Divide the dough in half and wrap each half of the dough in plastic wrap and chill it for at least 1 hour before rolling it out.
  10. Filling Recipe
  11. Pour the blueberries into a medium saucepan and add in the sugar.
  12. Sprinkle the cornstarch evenly over the top of the blueberries and add in the lemon juice and cinnamon.
  13. Heat over high heat and stir the berries to get everything combined.
  14. It only took me 5 minutes before everything was well mixed and the liquid began to thicken. Remove the pan from the heat once it begins to thicken and let it cool.
  15. Putting it All Together
  16. Take dough out of the refrigerator and let it sit for 15 minutes before rolling it out.
  17. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  18. Lightly coat the rolling surface with flour and roll dough out to roughly ⅛" thick.
  19. Cut dough into desired shapes. I cut mine into rectangles.
  20. Arrange dough onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicon pad.
  21. Spoon about 1-2 teaspoons of blueberry filling into center of dough.
  22. Cover with another rectangle of dough and crimp the edges with the tines of a fork.
  23. Continue doing this with the remaining dough and filling.
  24. Whisk the remaining egg in a small container and brush it onto the tops of the tarts.
  25. Either pierce the tops of the tarts with a fork or make a small slit in the tops with a knife. (This lets steam escape so that they don't blow up in your oven and make a mess.)
  26. Bake for 30 minutes or until they are golden brown.
  27. Remove from oven and let cool.
  28. Once the tarts have cooled, you can top them with the glaze.
  29. Add powdered sugar to a bowl then add milk, starting with just 1 tablespoon of milk. Stir mixture. If it needs to be thinner, add the second tablespoon of milk and stir.
  30. Drizzle glaze over top of tarts and let dry.
