Tips in Making Pear and Blueberry Tart

If you’re new to baking, it can be a difficult experience as there are a lot of things to consider and avoid. That is why we’re here to provide you with some tips to guide you through the baking process to enjoy a delicious homemade pear and blueberry tart dessert. 

  • Use fresh blueberries and pears for this recipe. Frozen blueberries or pears won’t be as delicious and tasty compared to the natural fresh ones. There are times when using frozen fruits would require additional time to thaw and bake for it to fully cook. 
  • Try poaching your pears in simple syrup. If you want to add in more flavorings to your tart, try poaching them. A poached pear is made when you boil your pears in a simple syrup sweetener mixture for around 20 to 30 minutes. Then, remove from heat, strain, and let cool before adding into the mix.
  • Prick the bottom of the fruit tart. Before adding the filling and fruits onto the tart, it’s important that you “dock” or prick the bottom of the tart crust first. Docking holes on the bottom surface let the steam escape from the base of the pan, preventing the crusts from puffing up. Remember not to make the holes too big!
  • Avoid adding too much fruit juice or liquid. Whether you’re using fresh or canned fruits for this blueberry pie, make sure that you properly drain the juice before adding it into the mixture. Excess liquid can ruin the consistency of the tart.
  • Chill before baking. After adding the filling, chill the tart for an hour or two before baking it so that it stays intact and retains its shape during the baking process.

Commonly Asked Questions

How do you keep fruit tarts from getting soggy?

To prevent the tart from getting soggy, add a thin layer of glaze on the bottom surface of the tart crust. For the glaze, melt some strawberry jelly with water and use a pastry brush to coat the crust. Another method you can use is “blind baking” where you pre-bake your tart crust with a parchment paper or foil covering it and some small pie weights to avoid it puffing at the center. Pre-baked crust will make them crunchy and solid enough to handle the moisture of the wet filling.

How do you make a tart shell from scratch?

If you don’t have those pre-made pie crusts at home, then you can easily make one from simple household ingredients. You can try this homemade pie crust recipe that you can make in less than an hour. The recipe makes use of a 9-inch pie pan which is the perfect size for this blueberry tart dessert.

What can I do with my very tart blueberries?

Store-bought blueberries may be too sour for making tart. Which is why when making this recipe, you want the sweet berries that are fully ripe. Sour blueberries can still be fixed though so that it blends with the taste of the pear. Adding some sugar, honey, or maple syrup can neutralize the sourness. Double the amount of sweetener if needed.
