Blueberry Yogurt Tarts

Its Sunday, a day that my daughter always look forward to. That is because we have promised her that we'll bring her out to park, shopping then swimming or picnic. Every Sunday, she'll wakes us at 8am sharp and make sure we are on time to start the day..;p But this morning she was late..haha! Think it was because the late night sleep and we've been traveling the whole day back to hometown. And so her schedule was alittle miss out here and there..LOL!! And what's more....a surprise gift from her daddy while shopping to cheer her up...:p She's one happy girl again..haha!
Alright, about today's post is a light and delicious tart that i found in the book "The lifestyle Cuisine magazine" again. I actually made this for my daughter's teachers in her kindergarten. Don't get me wrong, my daughter is no more in kindie but we just make a day to visit her old teachers who she miss..:)

The recipe calls for plain yogurt but I've used a blueberry flavored yogurt instead. I just want the taste to be more concentrated with blueberries. The colour was a beautiful purple with a light touch of yogurt and a crispy chocolate crust...yummy! Again my daughter took 2 of the tarts after her dinner! Too bad I only had a small bite of it, I'm sure to make this again for myself soon..:)
The Crust: (makes 20 small tarts) 250g plain flour
10g cocoa powder
1/4tsp salt
170g butter
40g beaten egg

~ Combine flour, cocoa powder and salt. Rub in butter then add in beaten egg and make to form a dough. (Do not knead too much).
~ Wrap dough with cling foil and chill for 30 minutes.
~ Roll out dough to fit a small pie mould, press and trim off edge.
~ Prick the base of the dough with a fork and bake in preheated oven at 180'C for 10 minutes. (shown above)
~ Remove crust from oven and set aside.

The fillings:
400g blueberry yogurt
20ml fresh milk
90g sugar
2 eggs (beaten)

~ Bring fresh milk and sugar to boil. Remove and leave to cool.
~ Add yogurt and beaten egg into the cooled milk mixture and mix well.
~ Pour filling into baked tarts crust.
~ Bake at 180'C for 25-30 minutes until the top of the fillings are set.
~ Remove from tarts / pie mould to cool.

The decoration:
Fresh blueberries
Alittle icing sugar

~ Place some fresh blueberries on top of the tarts and sprinkle some icing sugar.
~ Chill the tarts before serving.

The crust was good, had a light flavour of cocoa which matched the blueberry fillings perfectly. Its a good dessert to serve after a heavy meal..:) Hope you'll like this as much as I do!

  4. Janine,
    Thanks! You try not to knead the crust dough, just press to form a dough then let rest for awhile, it may shrink because of too much kneading...:)
