Frozen blueberries don't have the same flavor or texture as fresh, but you can use frozen fruit in this recipe. It can be done, but the results will not be the same.
Lemon curd is usually found in the jelly and jam section in your local grocery store. If you can't find lemon curd, substitute apricot or blueberry preserves instead.
Goat cheese is the perfect accompaniment to blueberries and lemon in this recipe. If you don't care for goat cheese, feel free to leave it out, or substitute another cheese in its place.
The only puff pastry I recommend is Wewalka. It comes in a single sheet and puffs up perfectly. You can find it at most grocery stores as well as Walmart. Make sure you purchase puff pastry and not phyllo dough or crescent rolls. There's a big difference in how puff pastry rises quickly when baked.
- Look for true puff pastry that rolls out onto parchment paper in a single sheet.
- Keep puff pastry cold in the refrigerator until ready to use so it will puff up properly.
- Purchase crumbled goat cheese for easier prep and assembly.
- Allow pastry to cool completely (at least 30 minutes) before slicing. Cutting the pastry too soon will cause it to tear.
- Use a pizza cutter when slicing pastry for best results.
The versatility of Blueberry Lemon Pastry is amazing! Serve it as a breakfast or brunch entree, or offer it as dessert after dinner. Cut it into smaller squares and it makes the perfect appetizer at any party or event!
