Blackberry and Blueberry Limoncello Tarts
In June, we’re on a full-blown blueberry kick while they are so fresh and in season.
Blackberries add to the ‘blue food fun’ we’re having. Take a peak at the photos at the bottom of this post to experience a walk through one of my good friend’s gardens and picking blueberries.
Never wanting to waste any food, I had a few more cups of the limoncello cream left over from the Blueberry and Limoncello Cream Parfaits.
So off to the store I went to pick up these little graham cracker crumb mini-pie crusts to combine everything into Blackberry and Blueberry Limoncello Tarts!
After filling the crust ‘shells’, I simply filled them with the limoncello cream, topped them with blackberries and blueberries . . . and then topped them off with sprigs of mint from my herb garden.
Done in a snap!
I just love “easy” in the lazy days of summer!
Dessert is ready in less than 10 minutes!
Here’s to enjoying the lazy days of summer in a cool, creamy, berry-flavored way!

my mouth is watering Roz, what a delicious tarts !Have a good day, a hug
I think that you would really enjoy these little tarts Chiara!
Un abbraccio e tu!
Just give me a bowl of the limoncello cream and I’d be happy. However, add the berries and I’m thrilled. 🙂 Love both the tarts and the parfaits!!! Your pictures are gorgeous Roz!
I appreciate your kind comments MJ, especially since I think you’re seriously one of the best food blog photographers out there. I’m still very much the amateur. Hope you’re having a great summer; the grilled corn that you recently made makes my mouth water . . . just thinking about it!
They look so pretty, summery and AMAZING! So what time should I come over for the tea?
You can come over ANY time you like Angie, whether or not for tea or whatever. It would be my pleasure to meet you and spend time with you!
OH MY Lord this is heavenly! Love the flavor of lemoncello and in a creamy texture inside a tart? This has to be so good Roz! Thanks for the recipe! Have a great week!
You’re so welcome Liz and Anna! My pleasure to share. I hope that you’re having a wonderful summer; it’s a bit on the hot side up here, so we’re enjoying more no-bake, no-cook recipes. How about you?
The photos are beautiful! We’re only eating a handful a day split between us with our two plants, but it’s still exciting to pull them fresh off the bush.
Thank you Mindy! I just love the rich, dark blue color of blueberries and blackberries! But I like to eat them even more! 🙂 Hope your summer is going wonderfully!
These are adorable and look so good on that pretty blue plate, Roz! Another great use for your yummy limoncello cream. I’m so jealous you are able to get fresh picked blueberries where you live. It has been a very hot June here, too. Hope you are managing to stay cool. These tarts would certainly help!
Oh it’s been a scorcher here for the last 3 weeks Shari. The other day when I went outside, the heat hit me with such a powerful blast, I said to my husband, “It feels like I’m back in Arizona.” Now that’s hot for this part of the country. I so need a pool or some body of water to jump into. I’m just holing up inside in the A/C! Just the opposite of winter’s hibernation! LOL!
I have never tried cream with limoncello… but it must be very good.
Thanks Ilaria! I love limoncello in SO MANY recipes! This is very nice for the hot days of summer! I think of Italy every time that I enjoy limoncello!
looks so good and what a fab garden
Awe, thanks Rebecca! Gardening is just one of the most rewarding gifts of life!
What a gorgeous dessert – worthy of BHG or something. 🙂
Yummed and pinned TWICE!
Thank you so much Ducks! I appreciate your kindness!
