Blueberry Lemon Curd Tarts | Daydreamer Desserts

A few weeks back as I was planning today’s post I had penciled “5/5 – Blueberry Pie”. Which, I totally intended to share with you today…

However, somehow, somewhere between the day I jotted that down and what actually transpired this weekend. Today’s post turned out to be just slightly different than what I had originally envisioned. In all honestly it was mostly it was due to the weather.

So instead of handing over a traditional blueberry pie (especially when it’s 90+ degrees out), I leave you with this… a fluffy and fresh blueberry tart.

Note: Other than the tart shells, which need a little less than 10 minutes in the oven (you can even use your toaster oven) this tart requires no baking. So, it’s perfect for warm weather.

Enjoy!
