Blueberry Cheesecake Tarts

 

Welcome back to the delicious week known as #EasterBrunchWeek. I sure hope you’ve found some great new recipes to add to your Easter brunch menu. 

 

If you happened to miss my other recipes for #EasterBrunchWeek, I’ll list them below as the week progresses. I don’t want you to miss a single one, they are all really yummy and EASY to make too. 

My next addition to #EasterBrunchWeek is Blueberry Cheesecake Tarts. They are baked bundles of deliciousness cradling a cheesecake center with a pop of flavor on top from blueberries.

 

 

They make a nice addition to brunch any time of the year, don’t limit yourself to spring. Without much effort, you have an amazing sweet treat that goes great with other brunch items.

The puff pastry is from Wewalka. I’ve been hailing the praises of Wewalka products for quite some time now on Who Needs A Cape? and our sister site Snacks and Sips. I use all of their products regularly (I’m talking at least once a week) and love how amazing they are. 

 

 

If you aren’t familiar with Wewalka as I am, you need to be. Pop over to the refrigerated dough section of your local supermarket and look for their products which include: puff pastry, pie crust, flatbread, and pizza dough. 

Wewalka is always committed to producing in a sustainable and responsible way and avoids using bromated or bleached flour, high-fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oil, animal by-products or artificial colors and flavors. One of the reasons I really love Wewalka is that all items include oven-safe parchment paper for “no-mess” baking. NO MESS=HAPPY ME!!!

Some tips for making Blueberry Cheesecake Tarts:
