Orange liqueur blueberry tart

    45 min

    Fresh blueberries baked with the bright citrus flavours of lemon juice and rich orange liqueur for a sweet, fruity tart delight. The orange liqueur really brightens the taste of the blueberries and balances their natural sweetness with a deep citrus tang. After baking, the tart is chilled and garnished with fresh whipped cream for an after you won't soon forget!

    I did not care for this recipe at all. The gel had a strange texture, it looked very unappetizing. Probably would have been better to pour the filling into the pie shell while it was warm, not hot, and chilled in the pie shell instead of in the bowl. I ended up having to bake it to salvage it.  -  07 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The best blueberry pie ever! I used three pints of blueberries so the pie was piled very high and held together even after it was cut. The ratio of sweet to tart was just perfect. This is definitely a keeper!  -  03 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good pie and fresh tasting. We do not like the mushy taste of blueberries that are baked. Unfortunately the picture is misleading because it shows a top crust and I originally thought it was going to be baked. Am sure other noticed this too.  -  21 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
