Ingredients for blueberry sour cream tart

For the crust:

  • Graham crackers – These slightly sweet, crunchy crackers are the perfect base for this tart.
  • Dark brown sugar – Dark brown sugar will give us a deep molasses flavor, along with some sweetness.
  • Unsalted butter – This is our fat of choice that will hold the crust together. 

For the filling:

  • Cream cheese – Cream cheese is the smooth and tangy base for our filling.
  • Sour cream – This adds more tang and a luscious creamy texture. 
  • Sugar – To add a little extra sweetness.
  • Lemon juice – Lemon juice adds brightness and a fresh burst of citrus to our filling.
  • Vanilla extract – Vanilla extract helps bring all of the flavors together and adds sweetness.

For the topping:

  • Fresh blueberries – I do not recommend using frozen blueberries, fresh ones work best here.
  • Blueberry jam – Sweet and thick, blueberry jam helps add extra blueberry flavor and give a beautiful shine to the tart. 
  • Strawberries – To add an extra flair, fresh strawberries cut into star shapes make this tart look so pretty!

How to cut out strawberry stars

It’s so easy to take an extra minute or two, to cut out little strawberry stars and make this no-bake blueberry cheesecake look super impressive!

This mini star cookie cutter does all of the hard work, so you don’t have to!

Time-saving tip

Don’t have time to bake the crust? No worries!

You can find these mini pre-made graham cracker crusts online, or in the baking aisle of most major grocery stores. 

Remember, work smarter, not harder!

Using different fruit

I’ve used blueberries and blueberry jam, but this is all up to you!

Raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries would be delicious here as well. 

Storage and leftovers

Leftovers of this blueberry sour cream tart can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
