Have you guys noticed blueberries lately have gone insane?? They're HUGE!!! We've been getting them every week at work because they're so fantastic; juicy, sweet and finally larger than a raisin. And I've been buying a carton pretty much every time I go to the store so it was blueberry overload for a minute there. There were too many to eat! Best solution when you have too many berries? Yup! It's bakin' time. Specifically, Honey Blueberry Yogurt Custard Tart time!
Funny story: I made this Honey Blueberry Yogurt Custard Tart right before I went up to visit my parents in Anacortes for the weekend and figured I'd bring a couple slices to share with them. When I told my mom I had brought them some blueberry custard tart, she said "I used to make you guys a blueberry custard tart all the time when you were little! Actually your dad just asked me a month ago if I would make it again!". I thought what a weird coincidence! I pulled out the tart slices, and my mom just stared at it and said "That's it! That's the tart I used to make!"
...Whaaaat?? I was all "nah uhhh I made this up! It's my new Honey Blueberry Yogurt Custard Tart" And we started listing off the ingredients, and except for my addition of honey and thyme, it was legit exactly the same. I have no memories of the tart, never asked about the tart, definitely don't have a recipe for the tart, and yet I somehow managed to subconsciously remember and recreate one of my mom's delicious recipes from when I was a kid! Must've LOVED that tart but lost it in the whole growing up and forgetting important things phase that is life. Isn't that crazy?!
I think my mind realized how awesomely delicious this particular blueberry custard tart was and decided it would secretly store that information deep in the recesses of my brain until I had too many blueberries one summer day and needed a decent sweet tooth fix...Tada!!!
So a quick note about this tart: It's delicious. You'll love it. Unbeknownst to me, this is a family recipe and has been around since I was a kid for a reason. My favorite part about this tart is that the custard has a honey yogurt base, which means NO cream! Also, homemade pie crust recipe is included below!Print
