  10. Sorry this sounds a bit lame but when you say spoon blueberries on top, do you mean real fruits blueberries? Aren't they still small whole fruits? How do you have the graphic effect with it being a solid?

    1. I'm using blueberry fruit jam, those selling at the bakery store...not those jam for bread. They do have small whole fruits in the jam. After you spooned onto the tarts, use a tooth pick or small fork yo make the graphic.
