Yield: Makes one 9-inch tart.

Another delectable, and really quite easy, way to use up some of the summer's blueberries. Especially good served with ice cream.


  • CRUST:
  • Use your favorite recipe, or try this whole wheat crust.
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 tablespoons chicken fat, melted
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • 1-1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour


Heat butter and chicken fat until foamy; remove from heat. Add syrup if desired. Mix in flour to make pastry dough. Press into a straight-sided 9-inch tart pan or a pie plate.



  • 4 cups blueberries, reserving about 1 cup for topping
  • 3 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Cinnamon (optional)


Place blueberries in pie crust. Sift flour over berries and drizzle with syrup; dust with cinnamon if desired. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 50 minutes, until berries are thickened and crust is nicely browned. Remove from oven and immediately pour reserved fresh blueberries over the top. Serve while still warm.
