Blueberry Goat Cheese Tart {no bake}

by Megan on May 28, 2012

My sister Laura visited this weekend. We bought blueberries at Eastern Market with this tart in mind. We assembled it between backyard beers and impromptu pizza eating. This is a casual tart. It always wears jeans, and never goes in the oven.

P.S. I’ve made this tart before strawberry-style. I hadn’t thought of putting blubeberries and goat cheese together until Cindy mentioned these awesome hand pies she made. OMG. She knows things.

Blueberry Goat Cheese Tart
Recipe adapted from here + crust from Martha Stewart

crust –

  • 12 double graham crackers*
  • 6 T unsalted butter, melted
  • pinch of salt
 * the ones that are about 5 x 2 1/2-inches
filling –
  • 7 oz. goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam
  • zest from 1/2 of a lemon
berries + glaze –
  • blueberries
  • 1 T strawberry jam
  • 1 T honey

Directions:

  1. Make crust. Crush the graham crackers in a food processor or in a plastic bag using a rolling pin. Make sure they are crumbs, for real, and no large chunks remain. Add the salt, and melted butter stirring thoroughly. Pour the graham cracker mixture into a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Press the mixture along the sides and bottom until evenly coated. Carefully place the tart pan in the freezer while you prepare the filling.
  2. Make filling. Using an electric mixer, beat the goat cheese with the strawberry jam and lemon zest. Spread evenly over the chilled crust.
  3. Sprinkle the berries. Top the goat cheese mixture with blueberries; covering the entire surface of the tart.
  4. Make the glaze by stirring together the honey and strawberry jam. Brush over the berries. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours, but overnight is best, to let the crust set completely and for the flavors to meld. Remove from tart pan, slice, and serve!

I was lucky to have my sister, Laura, AND Bailey here this weekend.

They’re underdressed! They can’t get into prom, but can totes get into your heart.
