Finnish Wild Blueberry Tart

Known as Mustikkapiirakka  (I know right!) in Finland ( we’ll just stick to blueberry tart, thank you very much) this is one of my personal favorite desserts because sometimes I need a little something after a meal but I’m not wanting something overly sweet, and this is just perfect! Thanks to The Wild Blueberry Growers of Nova Scotia for the amazing fruit!
