egg yolks in a bowl. Temper the hot cream into the yolks, and
return to a very slow heat. Using a spatula, stir till the cream
thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Cool the cooked cream
and then into ice cream machine and process according to manufacturer’s
instructions. Once frozen, fold pieces of cookie dough into ice

Turn mixer off, and add egg yolk and heavy cream all at once.
Pulse until incorporated and remove dough from mixer. Wrap in

Roll out pie dough on lightly floured marble surface. Cut dough
into rounds and press into 3½-inch tart pans and freezel.

For Blueberry Custard:
Bring heavy cream, sugar, and orange zest to a boil in a saucepan,
then remove from heat. Whip together eggs and egg yolk in a bowl
add a portion of the hot cream to bowl to temper the eggs. Transfer
egg mixture to saucepan with remaining hot cream and continue
cooking until custard coasts the back of a wooden spoon. Cool
custard and reserve.
To Assemble and Serve:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Place pie weights in tartlet shells
and partially bake about 7-8 minutes until they begin to take
on a light golden color.
Reduce oven temperature to 320°F. Place about 12 blueberries
in the bottom of the tart, fill to the rim with custard, and return
to oven. Bake until custard sets, about another 7-8 minutes. Remove
from oven and cool completely.
Once cooled, remove blueberry tarts from pans. Rewarm just before
service and then garnish with a scoop of cookie dough ice cream.
