Ready In:
12-20 tarts




  • Roll out pastry and cut to fit tart tins (I use mini tarts but you can use muffin tins-this will increase the cooking time) preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In large bowl, whisk egg, syrup, lemon juice and vanilla.
  • In medium bowl, mix sugar and flour.
  • Stir into egg mixture with butter.
  • Divide berries into uncooked pastry shells.
  • Pour egg mixture to top of shells.
  • Bake 18-23 minutes.
  • Remove tarts from tins immediately or the sugar will harden and they will stick tarts will firm up as they cool.

    Are we using fresh or frozen blueberries? Does it matter?

    If i wanted to freeze these could I and how long would I have to take them out to unfreeze them for consumption?

    These were a big hit at a party that I took them to. They were quick and easy and a nice change from the traditional buttertart. They are also not as sweet.

    These tarts are just amazing! Very easy to make and they taste delicious. I made them for a catering job I did, and they got rave reviews. I also used frozen tart shells, making them even more simple. Thanks for a terrific recipe! :)

    DH has found another love besides me!!! He did not believe me at first when I told him that there was fruit in there, but after one bite, he was in heaven. I used blackberries and the recipe turned out just fine!

    Wow, awesome recipe Erinn. We loved these tasty tarts. I made these last summer and forgot to review them. They are the best tasting butter tarts that I have ever tried. I used freshly picked wild blueberries in this dish. The flavor and texture of the tarts are spot on. Thank you for sharing a recipe that we will enjoy again next summer. Kudos on making it into my Best of Cookbook for 2020.

I work part time for a midwifery clinic and am mommy to three very busy and very hungry boys (ages 1, 9 and 10). My husband plays bass and sings in a christian band called Broken Walls ( ) so he is on the road alot and i am left to figure out something nutritious, fast and easy for the three of us when he is gone. My husband is an amazing cook and it comes so easy for him- which is a blessing and much appreciated after a day of work! I love recipezaar because it gives me ideas I just would never come up with on my own, and I really appreciate the enthusiasm and helpfulness of the other "chefs". I have been given some very good tips and advice.
