Blueberry Lemon Curd Tart. What’s Summer without lemons and blueberries? I love that combo, especially in a dessert. My Blueberry Lemon Curd Tart is simple to make. I like to bake my own tart shells but you can buy them prebaked.

Blueberries are now available all year round. I like to take advantage of the abundance of summer berries when they’re at their peak. Blueberries make an appearance in a number of ways on my menus. From my Blueberry Crumble Pie to blueberry muffins to blueberry cornmeal pancakes to blueberry balsamic jam, blueberries are a very versatile ingredient.

Long gone are my days of wild blueberry picking in New England and Pennsylvania, yet I do have a blueberry bush here in my backyard. Not one year have I gotten more than a handful of blueberries due to the local birds’ foraging heavy appetites!

For this recipe, you can use pate brisee tart shells or the sweeter pate sucree shells. Either one works. Bake and cool if you are making your own.

And you can either make your own lemon curd or purchase one of the abundantly available brands. I like to use the new Bonne Maman lemon curd if I’m not making my own.
