Blueberry Tartlets

I keep frozen blueberries in my freezer all the time because they make a great snack (I will post that simple recipe another time). I decided I wanted a dessert with my dinner the other night and of course my blueberries were in the freezer as well as some pie crust. I almost always have pre-made pie crust in my freezer too, for emergencies and this was an emergency. So with some quick thinking I whipped up these tartlets loosely based on the pie recipe on the back of the frozen blueberry bag and voila!

Ingredients and Directions:

2 C blueberries
1/4 C sugar
2 T flour
1 T corn starch (not pictured oops)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp lemon juice
Cinnamon Sugar
Pie crust (I used pre-made)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a muffin pan and set aside. Roll out pie crust and use either a cookie cutter or as I used a glass to cut circles. Place the cut circles in the muffin pan. With the remaining pie crust I cut small little circles (you can cut whatever shape you want) and set aside, these will be placed on top of the blueberries later. In a medium sized bowl combine sugar, flour, corn starch, and cinnamon. Mix thoroughly. Add blueberries and lemon juice. Scoop out the blueberry mixture and fill each tart with blueberries just about to the top. Place the small shapes of pie crust on top of the blueberries and then sprinkle each tart with cinnamon sugar mix. Cook for approximately 20 minutes or until pie crust turns golden.

I used a small frosting tip to cut the small circles for the tops of the tartlets.

You can see I got better at putting the pie crust circles in the muffin pan. It didn't matter in the end they all looked great.

I warmed the frozen blueberries up in the microwave just so they were not frozen anymore.

Depending on the occasion it might be fun to use different shapes for the top or you could not put any thing on top either, whatever works for you.

I bet these would be great paired with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Next time I will be sure to have that!


  1. These look delicious!! I always have blueberries in my freezer too, but wish the fresh ones were sold so perfect (and inexpensive) as they are right now!


  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love the name of yours because my ktichen is very cramped as well. The kitchen gadgets have been invading all the other rooms of my house.

  3. How lovely! What a fantastic way to combine the taste of a blueberry pie with the portability and serving size of a muffin- our blueberries in TN are just now ready for picking-this is a wonderful food blog!

  4. These are great and perfect for the 4th. I put little pastry stars on top! Thanks for a good and simple recipe!

  5. Does it matter if the blueberries are fresh or frozen?

  6. You can use fresh or frozen! I just usually have frozen blueberries in my freezer.
