Blueberry Wonton Mini Tarts

This dessert is a play on a traditional mini tart, using wonton wrappers, instead of a fresh pastry dough. The blueberry filling is so refreshing, and is even sweeter with a homemade chamomile whipped topping. It’s sure to be hit at your next hang out or a fun dessert to share with lucky co-workers. Enjoy a Lemongrass Caipirinha cocktail (if you’re of legal drinking age) while preparing this dish. It’s sure to make the process more enjoyable.
