However, I still can make simple mini Blueberry Cheese Tarts...store it well and it can last for days....;) Here's da recipe for a simple Blueberry Chese Tarts:-

Hi,
May i ask what's the double boiler?

Next, do u need to fill the crust mixture in a hard case (eg: aluminium foil case)to firm up the shape? tks
