Slightly more substantial than regular whipped cream, it’s sweetened and flavored with lemon for the ultimate complimentary topping. Dessert doesn’t get much better than this!
Here are a few tips and tricks to making this easy blueberry tart recipe:
If you’ve ever made tarts, or mini tarts you know that they’re pretty easy to make. In fact, I would venture to say they’re much easier than a regular pie. To simplify the process even more, I use store-bought refrigerated pie crusts, making the process quick and easy.
What type of tart pan do I use to make blueberry tarts?
For this recipe I use the 4″ round tart pans.
What type of crust do I need for these blueberry tarts?
A 2-crust package of refrigerated pie crusts worked perfectly with 6-4.5″ tart pans. The refrigerated pie crust works very well and one package is just enough for this blueberry tart recipe.

To top my mini tarts, I accompanied the juicy blueberries with a delightful Lemon Mascarpone cream. It’s a bit firmer than a regular whipped cream, the mascarpone adds a nice, light flavor and pairs perfectly with the lemon.
Can I leave off the lemon mascarpone cream?
Yes, of course. The mascarpone is definitely optional. However, it is wonderfully complimentary to this simple blueberry tart.
How do I make mascarpone cream?
It is very simple process, much like making whipped cream. With a hand or stand mixer, whisk together the mascarpone, sugar and lemon extract until fluffy. Scrape down the side of the bowl. On medium speed, slowly add the heavy cream and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Stop the mixer when the mascarpone cream is silky, yet slightly firm. Peaks will hold on their one.
What else can I top these blueberry tarts with?
As delicious as the lemon mascarpone cream is, you can definitely top these blueberry tarts with other toppings. Vanilla ice cream, fresh whipped cream, or my Blueberry Coconut Ice Cream are all great options.
Topped with lemon zest and a few fresh blueberries, this dessert not only tastes fabulous, but looks gorgeous as well. It would be perfect for Mother’s Day brunch, Easter dinner, a fun spring lunch with friends, or a delicious summer dessert for a cookout or picnic.
