Philadelphia Blueberry-Corn Tart

I am an Olympic enthusiast. I enjoy seeing the best realize their dreams. This Philadelphia Blueberry-Corn Tart from Baking Chez Moi would do nicely for a patriotic dessert commemorating the start of the Olympic games.


I have burned many a crust, so I have learned to use a lower temperature 375 degrees and less time. I now have it down to a science and the crust was perfect. The cream cheese filling was easy and delicious. I think I could have cooked the blueberry mixture a little longer, it was a bit thin. I also thought the amount was too much, I would use less next time. But the combination of fresh and cooked ingredients was good. I enjoyed my patriotic dessert.

I received that commemorative medal while performing in the opening ceremonies of the 1984 Olympics. For those of you old enough to remember I was one of the dancers and balloon holders.
