Almond, Tangelo And Blueberry Tarts

by Tenina Holder

I went to a business meeting the other day in the city and of course, as it was lunchtime on the way out of said meeting, felt that a little stop off for a tart was a good idea…I think this is pretty close to what I ordered. My own version of course, but truly delicious, gluten free (do I hear an allergy related cheer??) and totally more-ish. It is quite low on sugar, so you could potentially add a little extra…or just serve it with sweetned whipped cream or ice cream. Hope you hit a home run with this one.
