Author Notes

hese fig, blueberry and almond pastry tarts are a house favorite. Bursting with fresh flavors, quick, easy, with just a few ingredients and most importantly, seriously tasty!
Fresh figs and blueberries dipped in almond butter and drizzled with honey, all cozied up inside a flaky puff pastry crust and finished off with almond flakes. Sold! Combined and set to bake in the oven, the blueberries and figs turn into a sticky chunky jam, creating sweet little tarts filled with lumps of juicy fruit and a nutty touch from the almond butter.

Bonus… you can swap the blueberries for your favorite berry, or use a combo of berries! Can’t find almond butter? Use tahini or an other nut-butter for that nutty touch. Either way, you can’t go wrong with these mini tarts. Perfect for everything from brunch, to lunch, as a snack or to serve on your weekly knitting party.

Every bite is full of fruit and crispy puff pastry, hinted with almonds and perfectly sweet too. And of course, serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s the only way for ultimate pleasure. —Anna Chwistek | Serving Dumplings
