Blueberry Butter Tarts
12 frozen tart shells, each about 3 inches (8 cm) in diameter
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup (125 mL) corn syrup

1/3 cup (75 mL) brown sugar
1 tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour
3 tbsp (45 mL) melted butter
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) blueberries, preferably wild
Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Leave shells in foil cups and place
on a baking sheet. In a large bowl, whisk egg with syrup, juice
and vanilla. In another bowl, stir sugar with flour. Stir into
egg mixture along with butter. Divide berries equally among
shells. Pour in egg mixture, filling each shell right to top.
