Bake in a preheated slow oven (275 degrees F.) for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on rack.
In a saucepan, mix gelatin, wine and sugar substitute. Stir over low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Chill until syrupy. Stir in blueberries. Spoon mixture into cooled tart pans, mounding filling high. Chill until ready to serve.
