Bluberry crumble tarts

 These little tarts are special for tea time or with a coffe or a juice:) I think with a little  scoop of Ice cream would be delicious but I didn't have at home!


300 g of blueberries
2 teaspoons of cornstarch
55 g of sugar
4  teaspoon of water


60 g of all purpose flour
lemon grated (the peel)
40 g butter in cubes
30 g. sugar

(to 12 tarts)
350 g. all purpose flour
85 g glass sugar
170 g butter room temperature
4 yolks

Place the flour on the counter and add sugar.
Mix well add butter and egg yolks. Work the butter and the egg yolks with the fingertips.
Mix well until it has incorporated everything and make a smooth ball.
Put dough into the bag and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Remove and spread with the roller and  sprinkle a little flour before and cut dough of the size of the pans to be filled.Set aside.


Put half of the blueberries in a saucepan with the cornstarch, sugar and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 2 to 3 minutes or until that start to release juice and sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and add the remaining blueberries ..
For topping, mix flour with grated lemon zest, butter and sugar. Rub with your fingers to make crumbs like bread.
Divide the filling into the molds with the tarts and top with the crumble.
Put to oven for about 15to 20 minutes
and bake until crust is deep golden .
Cool in the tin - these are best served just warm. Carefully lift the pies out of the tin , transfer to a platter and serve.

Tartas de arándanos con crumble

Estas tartitas son maravillosas y se pueden hacer con cualquier berry congelado que es más facil de encontrar en este tiempo.
En el jumbo aún tienen arándanos pero carísimos, vean ustedes yo creo que para estas cosas convienen más los congelados son más baratos a veces.
Yo las hice con arándanos pero podrian ser con frutillas o frambuesas o moras.

masa (12 tartaletas)
(se pueden usar los moldes para muffins)

relleno y cubierta
300 gramos de arándanos
(frescos o congelados)
2 cucharaditas de maicena
4 cucharaditas de agua
55 gramos de azúcar

la ralladura de 1 limón
40 gramos de mantequilla
60 gramos de harina
 30 gramos de azúcar

350 gramos de harina sin polvos de hornear
85 gramos de azúcar
175 gramos de mantequilla
a temperatura ambiente
4 yemas


Colocar la harina sobre la mesa o una tabla de cocina, mezclar con la harina, y agregar la mantequilla y las yemas, unir de a poco con los dedos para ir haciendo una masa que se pueda formar una bola, si es necesario agregar un poco de harina, formar una bola y envolver en plástico y refrigerar durante unos 15 minutos.

Al retirar del refrigerador colocar un poco de harina en la mesa antes de usar el rodillo, estirar la masa (no muy delgada ) lo suficiente para recortar redondelas para poner en los moldes de muffins. Reservar.

Preparar el relleno
En una ollita poner la mitad de los arándanos con la maicena y agua, y azúcar. Cocinar a fuego medio hasta que espese.
Revolver durante unos dos o tres minutos hasta que tenga una consistencia espesa. Retirar del fuego y agregar el resto de los arándanos-
Rellenar las masas preparadas con esta mezcla.

En un bol colocar la harina con la ralladura de limón la mantequilla y azucar.

Luego de rellenar las masas cubrir con el crumble, Llevar a horno precalentado a 180° c. por unos 15 minutos o hasta que esten dorados.
Retirar y dejar enfriar antes de desmoldar.
