Blueberry Tart 蓝莓果塔

After making delicious blueberry muffin with the giant blueberries from the farm, I realized it wasn’t enough. So I’ve gone back to the same farm and brought back another bucket, haha. This time I am making blueberry tart and it is the first time I’ve made a fruit tart. I actually messed up and made my tart a bit too thick, but the blueberry filling by itself was just heavenly.
