This is a delicious recipe, and my rating reflects the taste! I was toying with the idea of making it a 4-star review, but I just couldn't do it! I will do things a little differently next time. I didn't have an 8" springform but rather a 9", and I think that would make a difference because it came out quite thin. In fact, I could almost see it in a smaller pan. I love those cookies used in the crust part! I rolled them in a baggie with my rolling pin, but I think I left the crumbs too big. I also think that next time I will try baking the crust for about 10 minutes on a low temperature so it forms a sturdier crust. I used Trader Joe's lemon curd. I loved the use of the mascarpone, and the blueberries weren't too sweet. Thanks for the recipe! It's a great combination!
I cut the sugar a tad in the blueberry compote since cookies are sweet enough. I heated the crust a bit. It tastes good even if you don't let it set in the fridge since mascarpone is pretty firm. I made my own whipped cream with 1 cups heavy cream, 1/4 pod vanilla bean, and 1 1/2 tsp powdered sugar. Whisk, whisk, whisk. Came out perfect. Must try if you love creamy desserts or blueberries.
This recipe is AMAZING! Oh, and it's very simple and quick to make too! Light and refreshing and very Blueberry-ee! I used Safeway Brand (Select) Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins in place of TJ's Tea Cookies. The bag was 5 ounces. The recipe calls for 4 1/2 ounces so I ate the other half ounce. Those little cookie thins are yummy! I didn't make my own Lemon Curd. I bought Safeway Select Lemon Curd in the jar. I picked the Blueberries the morning I made the Tart and they were just bursting with flavor. Made for my Book Club, the gals gobbled down every single bite and I had none left to bring home to hubby. I will be making this recipe many more times in the future. Thanks Dana for a real Blueberry keeper!
Everyone who tried this dish that I made absolutely LOVED it! I used the Pepperidge Farm Lemon Cookies for the crust and it was so yummy! I have made this 3 times in 2 weeks and I can't keep it from being eaten!
I loved this recipe and so did the rest of my family. I did add about 3 times the amount of lemon curd, because I love lemon!
Quick, easy and delicious. I also used heavy whipping cream, about 1 cup, but did not add anything to it. I did double the lemon curd to give it more flavor.
