Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 10-12
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ cup( 1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons ice water, if needed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 5 cups ripe blueberries, picked over
  • confectioners' sugar for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Lightly butter an 11- inch fluted tart pan with a removable bottom.
Making the Pastry
  1. Pulse the flour and sugar in a food processor until well combined.
  2. With the motor running, add the butter through the feed tube.
  3. Stir together the egg yolk and the vanilla in a small bowl.
  4. With the motor running, gradually add the egg mixture and pulse just until the dough comes together. When a small bit is pressed between your fingers.
  5. If it seems dry, add cold water a little at a time.
  6. Transfer the dough to the tart pan. Press it evenly over the pan bottom and up the sides. The dough will look rough.
Making the Filling:
  1. Stir together the granulated sugar and the flour in a large bowl. Add half the blueberries and toss to coat with the sugar mixture.
  2. Transfer the berries to the tart shell and top with any sugar mixture left in the bottom of the bowl.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 35-40 minutes longer, until berries are bubbling and the pastry is golden brown.
  4. Halfway through the baking time, stir the berries and turn over any that have flour on them.
  5. Transfer the tart to a wire rack and top with the remaining berries., pressing them gently into the hot berries.
  6. Let cool to room temperature. To serve, dust the tart with confectioners' sugar. Cut into wedges and serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
