  • 1 Blueberry & Cream Cheese Butter Braid® Pastry
  • 3/4 c. fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp. grated lemon zest

Step-By-Step Directions

  1. The night before baking, set the pastry out to rise according to the package directions.
  2. In a 2-quart saucepan, combine the fresh lemon juice, sugar, unsalted butter, eggs, and grated lemon zest.
  3. Cook the mixture over medium-low heat, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from curdling.
  4. Continue cooking until the mixture starts to thicken and bubbles rise to the surface. This takes roughly 5-10 minutes.
  5. Once thickened, remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside to cool. This will be your lemon curd.
  6. Unbraid the pastry and separate the Blueberry & Cream Cheese filling from the pastry. Set the filling aside.
  7. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  8. Roll out the pastry dough very thinly. Cut out circles from the dough that are slightly larger than your tart skillets.
  9. Using a fork, poke holes in each circle and place them in the tart skillets.
  10. Bake for 10-14 minutes or until the dough turns golden brown. Once baked, allow to cool completely.
  11. Fill each tart shell with a generous dollop of lemon curd, spreading it evenly.
  12. Top the lemon curd with a dollop of the Blueberry & Cream Cheese filling. Enjoy!

Tips for Making Lemon Blueberry Tartlets

  • Make sure, as you are heating up your lemon curd, that you allow the sugar to fully melt. Don’t rush the process, or you can scald or burn your curd.
  • To shape your tartlets, use a mini cast iron skillet. These skillets can be found and ordered online. This is the link to the ones we used for this recipe: Mini Cast Iron Skillet (4 Count).
  • For a little extra touch of sweetness, consider topping your tartlets with a dollop of whipped cream or sprinkle of powdered sugar.
  • Lemon Blueberry Tartlets can last 2-3 days in the refrigerator when placed in an airtight container.
