Holiday Dessert: Lemon, Blueberry & Almond Streusel Tart

Looking forward to the 2010 Winter Holidays, we created some new and exciting items for our Winter Holiday Pricing Guide (available by clicking here).

One of our favorite winter holiday desserts is a decadent lemon and almond tart with sweet wild blueberry filling. Some of our friends may be familiar with our lemon blueberry cookies, featured in the orenji Assorted Holiday Cookies collection. This delicious tart is a “full-sized” version of our little cookies—for those large and festive holiday occasions!

The tart begins with a flaky butter dough, infused with the sweet scent of Meyer lemons. Into this tart dough goes a thick filling made with wild blueberries, vanilla, lemon, and some subtle holiday spices. The filling is topped with an almond-studded streusel topping, which when baked, becomes crispy and golden brown.

Altogether, this dessert isn’t too rich or too heavy, but is incredibly satisfying—the perfect ending to a rich holiday meal. The lightness of the lemon dances on the palate, and leaves you (and your guests!) wanting more!
