Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon ice water
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup lemon curd
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar, for dusting

Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the Crust

In a food processor, combine the flour, butter, and sugar. Pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the egg yolk and ice water, and pulse again until the dough comes together.

Step 2: Chill the Dough

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and shape it into a disk. Wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Step 3: Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

Step 4: Roll out the Dough

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a circle that’s about 12 inches in diameter. Carefully transfer the dough to a 9-inch tart pan, pressing it into the bottom and up the sides.

Step 5: Blind Bake the Crust

Line the crust with parchment paper and fill it with pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove the weights and parchment paper. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Let it cool completely.

Step 6: Prepare the Filling

In a small bowl, gently toss the blueberries with 1 tablespoon of flour. This will help prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the tart. Spread the lemon curd evenly over the cooled crust, then sprinkle the blueberries on top.

Step 7: Chill and Serve

Refrigerate the tart for at least 2 hours, or until the filling is set. Before serving, dust the tart with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness. Slice and enjoy!
