Title: Blueberry Buttermilk Tart
Categories: Pie
Yield: 1 Pie

1 1/3cAll-purpose flour
1/2cCold unsalted butter, cut into bits
1lgEgg yolk, beaten with 2 tablespoons ice water
3lgEgg yolks
1/2cGranulated sugar
1tbFreshly grated lemon zest
1tbFresh lemon juice
1/4cUnsalted butter, melted and cooled
2tbAll-purpose flour
2cPicked over blueberries
  Confectioners' sugar

Make the shell: In a bowl stir together the flour, the sugar, and the salt, add the butter, and blend the mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Add the yolk mixture, toss the mixture until the liquid is incorporated, and form the dough into a ball. Dust the dough with flour and chill it, wrapped in plastic wrap, for 1 hour. Roll out the dough 1/8 inch thick on a floured surface, fit into a 10-inch tart pan with a removable fluted rim, and chill the shell for at least 30 minutes or, covered, overnight. Line the shell with foil, fill the foil with rice, and bake the shell in the middle of a preheated 350 degree F oven for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and rice carefully, bake the shell for 5 to 10 minutes more, or until it is pale golden, and let it cool in the pan on a rack.

Make the filling: In a blender or food processor blend together the buttermilk, the yolks, the granulated sugar, the zest, the lemon juice, the butter, the vanilla, the salt, and the flour until the mixture is smooth, spread the blueberries evenly over the bottom of the shell, and pour the buttermilk mixture over them. Bake the tart in the middle of a preheated 350 degree F oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the filling is just set. [Don't overcook it. If you do it right, the blueberries will still be whole but cooked.]

Let the tart cool completely in the pan on the rack, sprinkle it with confectioners' sugar, sifted, and serve it at room temperature or chilled.
