It is that time of the week again. I know, it has been really hot here and my colleagues looked at me like I have lost my marbles when I said that I was planning to turn on the oven Monday night. But I did not mind as I love blueberry anything!
I decided to make a tart instead of a double crusted pie. I made a lovely cake and iced it on Sunday for Brad's birthday ( and sent the rest of the cake to his office on Monday) and did not feel like eating another huge dessert on Monday night..but we did anyway, resistance is futile when it comes to dessert in my house.
The pastry was easy enough - I used my food processor to make the pie crust and it turned out nice and flaky. I really liked the filling - it had the right amount of sweetness and a bit of lemon juice and zest to brighten it up. I could have had a whole bowl of the filling. Sorry guys - no recipe today as the group decided not to publish any of Dorie's recipe. I know - I have published her recipe in the past but since this as TWD event I will have to honour the rules of the group.
I served it with whipped cream and it hit the spot. Or serve it warm from the oven with a scoop of ice cream - make it a large scoop!
