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!

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! EDIT: This time I used a 4x8 dish and baked the crust for 7 minutes at 350. For the filling I made Perfect Lemon Curd ( but added 1/2 cup to the mascarpone. I forgot to buy the frozen whipped topping, so I used someone else's suggestion of using whipping cream--1 cup with 2 tablespoons powdered sugar added. It was perfect! And it was a hit with everyone! So thanks once again, dana!

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.

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.
