Raises hand. 

Blue Diamond Artisan Nut Thins are my most favorite crackers ever. They’re crispy, crunchy, full of flavor and to top it all off, they’re gluten free! They are my go-to cracker for enjoying with party dips, hummus, cheese and peanut butter. They often make it into my lunch box during the week so healthy snacking is easily accessible.

Blueberry Brie Pastry Tarts | This Gal Cooks #EatTheRainbow

Today I’m teaming up with Naturipe Farms to help spread the word about the #EatTheRainbow Challenge. Over the next five weeks, four other bloggers and I will be sharing delicious breakfast, salad, dinner, desert and beverage recipes that are made with healthy, nutrient packed fruits provided by Naturipe farms.

#EatTheRainbow Challenge | This Gal Cooks

It just so happens that I was selected to create an out-of-the-box breakfast recipe, which is AWESOME because my favorite meal of the day is breakfast. Last year I made these Blueberry, Brie and Walnut Quesadillas, which are to-die-for. I wanted to play off of that recipe when creating a recipe for the #EatTheRainbow challenge. I decided to make these delicious Blueberry Brie Pastry Tarts, which I must say give the quesadillas some stiff competition. These tarts are GOOD. You will want to eat ALL of them. But be nice, share with friends and family.

What I love about these Blueberry Brie Pastry Tarts:

  • They’re a delicious way to incorporate fresh fruit into your breakfast.
  • They’re made with fresh blueberries.
  • Brie cheese lends incredible savory flavor to them.
  • Honey slightly sweetens the blueberries.
  • They’re more savory than sweet.
  • They’re made with all natural ingredients. Even the pastry dough is all natural (Dufour brand).
  • They make great leftovers. Ken and I enjoyed these for 4 days!
  • They’re great for serving at brunch, meetings and parties.

I hope you will give them a try and if you do, I hope you love them as much as we do!

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 8 tarts
Ingredients
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed. I used Darfour - it's all natural.
  • 1 8oz Brie wheel
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • Sliced almonds
  • Honey
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp water
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the top off of the Brie wheel. Place the Brie wheel in your oven for a couple minutes to soften.
  3. Unfold the puff pastry dough and place it on a floured surface. Sprinkle with flour. Cut into 8 equal sized pieces. Cut a ½ inch border around each piece. Do not cut all the way through the pastry. Prick within the border with a fork. This will prevent the center of the pastry from puffing up.
  4. Place the Brie within border of pastry (over part with fork holes). I broke off pieces from the wheel and distributed evenly within the pastry border. Place blueberries over the Brie, lightly pressing to keep them in place.
  5. Top the blueberries with sliced almonds and then drizzle with a little honey.
  6. Whisk together egg white and water. Brush over the outer edges of pastry.
  7. Bake 400 for 20 minutes. Cool for a few minutes before serving.
Notes
I didn't provide measurements for the almonds or honey because the size of your tarts, plus your preference, will determine how much of each is used
