The Best Blueberry Recipes
Blueberries may be small, but they are quite the superfood. They contain anthocyanin which is an antioxidant that allows them to be the color blue, as well as high levels of vitamin C and potassium.
Blueberries are very common in the United States and are in many recipes, especially desserts and sweet breakfast dishes. Some people even like to eat them straight out of the container as a snack.

Best Blueberry Recipes: French Fruit Tart (+More Great Ideas!)
Sweet Shortcrust Pastry (pate sucree)
- 1 sweet shortcrust pastry dough (blind baked per instructions)
Pastry Cream (creme patissiere)
- 2-3 cups assorted fresh seasonal fruit (I used blueberries, blackberries, kiwi, cuties mandarin oranges (or use canned mandarin oranges), raspberries, and strawberries)
- ⅛ cup apricot preserves (warmed and strained)
Sweet Shortcrust Pastry (pate sucree)
- Make the single shortcrust pastry recipe as directed and blind bake for 15 minutes, then remove the weights and bake an additional 10 minutes. Allow the crust to cool completely before assembling the tart.1 sweet shortcrust pastry dough
Pastry Cream (creme patissiere)
- Bring a medium saucepan with the 1 cup milk and ½ teaspoon of vanilla paste (or vanilla bean caviar, or pure vanilla extract) to medium heat. Stir occasionally and heat until the first bubbles appear.1 cup milk, ½ teaspoon vanilla paste
- While the milk is heating: In a large mixing bowl whisk the egg, egg yolk, and 3 tablespoons sugar together until light in color and frothy in appearance. Add the 2 tablespoons flour and 1 ½ tablespoon of cornstarch and whisk until smooth.1 large egg, 1 large egg yolk, 3 tablespoon sugar, 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour, 1 ½ tablespoon cornstarch
- Once the milk is heated: Temper the egg mixture by adding a ladle-full amount (approximately ¼ cup) of the heated milk, whisking vigorously. Repeat once, then whisk in the remaining heated milk and vanilla.
- Transfer the combined mixture back into your saucepan and return to medium-low heat, whisking occasionally. As soon as your pastry cream thickens, remove it from heat and whisk vigorously until you have a smooth creamy texture.
- Transfer the pastry cream to a clean bowl and cover with cling film, allowing the plastic wrap to settle onto the surface. Press down on the plastic wrap to adhere it to the entire surface of the pastry cream. This will prevent a 'skin' from forming on the creme. Set aside and allow to cool completely.
Assemble the Tart with the Fruit Topping
- Place your baked tart shell onto a serving plate and fill it with your pastry cream, spreading the cream to the edges. *I usually make my apricot glaze and brush some onto the tart shell as well as the fruit, prior to filling the tart shell with creme.
- Prepare your fruit by cleaning, de-hulling, and slicing as necessary. Arrange the fruit in a circular pattern working from the outside with the sliced fruit toward the center, where berries can be piled up.2-3 cups assorted fresh seasonal fruit
- Warm the apricot preserves (jam or jelly) in a microwave-safe dish in a short 15-second heating on high power. Strain the preserves through a fine mesh sieve to remove any chunks (if desired), then brush your fruit with glaze to give the fruit a nice shiny appearance.⅛ cup apricot preserves
- Chill the assembled tart for at least an hour before slicing and serving.
- Timing wise, once my pastry is made and chilling in the refrigerator, I then make the pastry cream and allow it to cool. Bake the shortcrust pastry and allow to cool as well, then assemble the tart.
- For the fruit topping I used blueberries, blackberries, kiwi, cuties mandarin oranges (or use canned mandarin oranges), raspberries, and strawberries. Mango, peaches, and nectarines can also be used.
