Baked Chocolate Truffle Oreo Dream Tart

So much so, that it just HAD to have the word dream in the title. In my spare time, I love flipping through food magazines and cookbooks, looking over recipes and getting inspired. Rarely do I actually bake anything from the magazines, and very rarely is a recipe I do bake worth ever making a second time. But this recipe? This recipe was the exception to the general rule.

Meyer Lemon Cheesecake. Perfect Peach Pie. Frozen Strawberry Cheesecake. Blueberry Almond Tart. The other morning Taylor and I awoke feeling rather blue.

Blueberry Almond Tart

Not because the cats decided to use our bodies as early-morning spring boards; rather, we had blueberries on the brain. That’s the best kind of blue. So, in spite of the heat, we put on our grubby clothes, loaded up on bug spray, and headed out to the country for a good ol’ fashioned blueberry-pickin’ date. The fields were swarming with bugs, but the bushes were hanging heavy with ripe berries. It didn’t take us long to pick two whole buckets of beautiful blues. Actually, we probably picked two and a half buckets, if you count all the ‘snacks’ we had along the way (those are free, right?) Yes, we were dripping by the end of it, but it was well worth the blood, sweat, and tears. Once we got home I realized just how many blueberries we actually picked.
