Blackberry Curd Tart

Blackberry Curd Tarts.

The answer to the “what should I make for dessert that isn’t loaded with sugar” question you’ve been asking yourself. See, I get it. When it comes to food at the holidays, it’s all about indulging that sweet tooth- especially as a food blogger. And I’m ok with that, in moderation. But then I get to a certain point where I’m on sugar overload, so I migrate more into using natural sugars in my recipes, like as I did in these adorable tarts! And guess what? They still satisfy any sugar cravings that might sneak up on you.

And being that tarts remind me of the fanciest of tea parties at the Queen’s palace (no idea why haha) I had to add delicate dried rose buds as the perfect garnish along with some fresh blackberries and sugared cranberries. Aside from being beautiful, consuming rose buds have therapeutic benefits that can nourish the skin, increase immunity, reduce fatigue, and improve digestion!

Instructions

Sugared Cranberries

  1. ** If making sugared cranberries, please make the night before.

    In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil and stir in 1 cup of sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves to make a syrup. Place the cranberries in a bowl and pour the syrup over top and let the cranberries soak for 4 hours or overnight.

    Drain the cranberries. Pour the other half cup of sugar in a bowl and toss the drained cranberries in the sugar, coat well. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and allow them to dry.

Blackberry Curd

  1. Make your curd filling first. Start by blending your blackberries in a food processor/blender until smooth

  2. Add your maple syrup and nutmeg to the processor/blender as well and blend until very smooth

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and arrowroot powder until smooth, then add it to the blackberry mixture, blend again

  4. Pour the mixture into a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until the mixture starts to boil, stirring constantly. Cook for a few more minutes, continuing to stir until it thickens and then pour it into a glass container. Whisk in the Violet Grape Supercolor Powder and allow the mixture to cool at room temperature. Once cool, cover and store in the fridge until you're ready to use (or overnight)

Crust

  1. Place your dates in a glass bowl/measuring cup and fill with water to cover the dates. Microwave for about 2 minutes to soften the dates

  2. In your food processor, combine all the crust ingredients including the drained dates. Blend until the crust is well combined

  3. Firmly press the crust into tart tin(s)

Tarts

  1. Pour your curd filling in the tart shells and refrigerate/freeze until the curd sets up

  2. Decorate with sugared cranberries, rose buds and fresh blackberries

Notes

**NOTE: feel free to double to make one medium-sized tart

  1. You mention peaches in the directions while peaches aren’t a part of the recipe. ;p
    Could you obtain the same or similar color for the curd using red dragon fruit instead of the color powder?
    This sounds scrumptious! Looking forward to making it! 🙂

    • Thank you for catching my error! I will change peach mixture to blackberry mixture. I was referring to my peach cobbler chia pudding recipe 🙁 I haven’t tried it with dragonfruit but that sounds delish! Would love to hear about it if you make it that way. Hope you enjoy!!
