Blueberry Bakewell Tart

Blueberries seems to be in season now. In our local supermarket, they have been on offers for these two weeks. I didn't hesitate to buy them whenever they are on offers. With abundant blueberries on hand, I didn't hesitate to bake the Blueberry Bakewell Tart, as shared by Grace, last weekend. I had the opportunity to try it previously and I fell in love with it.

The ground almond, mixed with blueberry and the crispy crust was truly heaven. As I didn't have blueberry jam, I used chocolate ganache to brush the crust base instead. However, when I tried it, I thought the taste wasn't as good as it is with blueberry jam. Hmm...still the original taste better. :) Do try it if you have blueberries to spare!


With the leftover dough, I baked them and made them into dark chocolate cherry tarts. I used the cherries from the Griottines that Doris gave me previously. I mixed some cherry liquor into the dark chocolates and topped it with a cherry. It was another indulgence. However, this is only limited to six tartlets that I made. I love this crust as it's really crispy!
