If you need an easy to make recipe for a special occasion moment this spring, then look no further! This Blueberry Almond Cream Tart was #InspiredByPuff and absolutely delicious! Almond cream tops a golden brown pastry puff sheet and is buried in blueberries, slivered almonds and then drizzled with a confectioner’s glaze.
This year for Mother’s Day, we were by ourselves. Kids are in North Carolina and our families back home are a good 4 hour drive for us. I have a lot of work to get done before my upcoming trip and Grumpy is on call, so Mother’s Day was pretty much just another day here for the Grumpy house. However, we still made it special with this incredible Blueberry Almond Cream Tart!
Creating a simple but delicious recipe is not much further than a box of Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets. There are so many possibilities! From appetizers to desserts you can create delicious food to serve at your holiday celebrations (think Memorial Day, bridal showers, baby showers).

Tip: When making a pastry sheet to use as a tart, you will want to score around the edges with a knife and then pierce the tart with fork tines all over the tart. Don’t worry about doing too many tine marks, they only prevent your tart from puffing up all the way leaving room for your filing form into the tart.
