Blueberry cheese tart recipe

This tart brings together sweet and savoury perfectly. 


Phyllo dough 3-5 sheets 

1 brick cream cheese at room temperature 

 2 tbsp honey 

1 cup blueberries

? cup sugar

½ lemon juice and zest 

Handful basil leaves

1 egg 


Preheat oven to 375 F.

Get a pot on medium heat and add your sugar, blueberries and lemon.

Cook down until bubbling and blitz with an immersion blender.

Once blended it should thicken up place pot on low heat and let simmer for a few minutes to come together.

Place your cream cheese, honey, and blueberries in a bowl and mix until it comes together and makes a nice purple filling.

Lay out the phyllo dough and fold over the end about an inch to create a crust 

Cooks tip: If you want a super crunch crust use three layers; if you want it to hold together a little better go for five this is a personal choice. 

Fill the pastry with the cheese mixture spreading it evenly.

Take your egg and mix it up and brush the crust of the phyllo.

Bake for 17 minutes.

Pull out of oven let cool and place basil leaves overtop.
