Blueberry tart

I had a "senior moment." They're becoming more and more common around here. Ahem. I ordered a traditional French holiday yule log cake from our local bakery to have for dessert on Christmas day. It was delivered on Saturday afternoon. Earlier that day, in a flurry of activity, I made a blueberry tart for dessert on Christmas day. And it wasn't that I forgot about the cake. I just had it in my head that I needed to get dessert made on Saturday because the oven would be in use on Sunday morning.

A blueberry tart sprinkled with powdered sugar.

So we had two desserts. And both are good. I picked the blueberries at a local farm back in July and froze them for use through the fall and winter (we still have a good supply in the freezer). So since Sunday we've been alternating between the cake, which is frosted with a coffee-flavored pastry cream, and the tart. Not to mention a nice plate of holiday cookies baked and offered by a friend...

  3. By the way, what's under the blueberries in the tart, a layer of frangipane perhaps?
    Or is it a secret?!

  5. Ah, not just me. I get so focused on something that must be or expected to be done, I forget the detail.

    Well, if your senior moments result in extra fabulous desserts, not much harm done!

  7. Oh, that blueberry tart makes my mouth water. But I don't understand the problem. Is it that you only remembered to have TWO desserts?

  9. That's not a senior moment. I call that planning ahead. As they say, you can never have too much dessert.
