Mini Pear Tart with Blueberry Jam

What I present to you today is a mini pear tart with blueberry jam.

It can be served warm or cold and you can still savor the taste of the sweetness of the pear slices and at the same time savor the delicate almost sour blueberry jam. The jam is flavored by the persistent scent of cinnamon without this prevailing over the sweetness, giving that extra touch of aroma that makes the dessert even more irresistible.


This recipe was given to me by my mother’s friend when I was in Italy last December before the pandemic.

One day I went to see, Anna, my mother’s friend. Entering Anna’s house I was invaded by the smell of cinnamon that perfumed the kitchen. Anna was preparing this delicious pear tart with blueberry jam for her grandchildren who come to visit her.

I could not resist asking what she was cooking. She told me if I wanted some there was still some left. I was a bit skeptical because I don’t like sweets with cinnamon. But I changed my mind, it was delicious. I didn’t say a word till I was done with the dessert and when I finished, the first thing I asked for was the recipe.
