Blueberry Tartlets

If I were to eat sugar right now, I would make these beautiful blueberry tarts! They look so pretty! So if any of you are not watching what you eat {so by the end of the summer you can fit into some designer jeans}, you should make some of these!

The Ingredients Serves 6
2 packages (14 oz. each) frozen puff pastry
3 cups (1½ pints) blueberries
1 tbsp. all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
½ cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling
juice of ½ lemon
vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 375ยบ. On a well-floured surface, roll out puff pastry just enough so that four 5" circles can be cut out (use a plate as a guide). Roll out the other package of pastry, and cut out two more 5" circles (reserve remaining pastry for another use). Place cut circles on two baking sheets, and put them in the freezer for at least 10 minutes. While dough is chilling, combine blueberries, flour, sugar and lemon juice in a medium bowl, and toss to combine; set aside. Remove pastry circles from freezer, and brush excess flour from chilled rounds with a pastry brush. As soon as dough is pliable, pinch the edges until a pleated shell is formed. Spoon the berry mixture (about ½ cup per tartlet) into the center. Reshape if necessary. Repeat with the remaining pastry and berries. Freeze again if pastry has softened too much. Brush edges with cold water, and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until edges are golden-brown and berries are bubbling, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Oh my yummy! I haven't given up sugar, but I am watching my calories again. Not sure this will fit in the plan. I'm going to store it away for a later date though!
