Instructions
Sweet Dough
  1. In a large bowl sift together flour, cinnamon, sugar and salt,
  2. With your hands, mix butter into flour mixture until it is meally looking.
  3. Sprinkle iced water over the top of mixture slowly bringing dough together. Add the water a little bit at a time.
  4. DO NOT Over mix, you want the dough to just barely bind together.
  5. Separate into 3-4 discs and wrap each one individually with plastic wrap.
  6. (You wrap them in smaller disks so that you can keep the others cold while rolling out just one!)
  7. Place in Fridge and chill for at least an hour. (Make blueberry filling while it chills)
  8. Roll out one disk at a time to 1/8" thickness,cutting them into 5-6 inch rounds(use a bowl to trace around).
  9. Place a large spoonful of blueberry filling in the center. (recipe below)
  10. Either leave dough flat (for pizza looking finish) or fold over edges like a tartlet.
  11. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet with 2 inches between tarts.
  12. Brush tarts with egg wash and sprinkle generously with sugar.
  13. Bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes until crust is golden and blueberries are bubbly. Turn tarts at 7 minutes to allow for even browning.
  14. Allow 15 minutes to cool before removing from the baking sheet.
