mouldUse fork to prick few holes on the dough (at the bottom). This tiny holes will release the air  from the dough, so that the tarts are baked flat bottom.

It’s suggested that the cream cheese to be medium cold (take them out from refrigerator, just about 20 minutes before using them). This is just to ensure the cream cheese filling is firm/ not watery at later part.

Add in the eggs, lemon juice and continue to beat the mixture, just a little while.






In a baking tray, arrange the baked tart shells. Fill in the shells about 1/4 teaspoon of blueberry filling.
