Normally I am a terrible baker. Nothing seems to turn out the way I would hope. This fresh fruit tart, however, turned out beautifully. It tastes delicious and it is refreshing beyond belief. My family loved it and may even revoke my title of a bad cook! It is absolutely delicious and perfect for any holiday get together! Enjoy!
It turned out really well, but I think that I would prefer using cornstarch over flour. I would also recommend adding vanilla after you take the custard off of the stove, so it doesn't all evaporate. I was lucky because my strawberries came with some fructose, so I used that to glaze and seal the tart. It was really easy. Also, I'm not sure about the three egg yolks. I think it would be better to just use one and then add ice water.
I don't know what everyone else did that I didn't but this recipe turned out terrible. I didn't modify anything.
Not only the crust was awful but the custard too. I usually use cornstarch for the custard so this was the first time I used flour. The texture and taste weren't good at all.
I didn't bother assembling my fresh and expensive fruit onto it. Both the custard and crust were tossed in the garbage. ;[
Awesome recipe. I tried it for the first time yesterday and my family loved it. I've been assigned to make this for Easter. Instant hit! By the way I substituted full fat milk with heavy cream full fat milk...made the custard nice & thick. Thank you Evelyn!
Excellent tart and easy to make as well. I made this for my son's Grandparents day event and my son's 4th birthday the next day. This was the first to finish, on both occasion! I also made it with individual premade tart shell. This recipe is enough for 6 mini tarts. Thank you so much. Definitely a keeper!
I used apples, walnuts and caramel sauce on the top and left off the topping. It was wonderful! Will definately be making again. Thank you Evelyn. Melanie
OUTSTANDING and very easy to make. I will make this one again for sure. Thanks for sharing!
Oh lovely! My favorite summer tart. I made mine in a lasagna dish as I wanted a rectangular case. The pastry turned a beuaitful golden color and lifted right out onto my pretty platter. The custard was just the right amount--just enough to 'glue' the fruit in place and not too much to overwhelm the wonderful fresh fruit flavor. I did strawberries, kiwi, banana and blueberries--all under the pretty apricot glaze. Everyone loved the way it looked and the way it tasted. Thanks Ev!
VERY easy! VERY delicious! An added suggestion would be: after the custard has cooled...you can put it into a food processor and "cream" it again and it will spread much smoother. Thank you for this recipe!
Terrrific. Made this for a dinner party this weekend and everyone was VERY impressed .I used kiwifruit, strawberries and bananas. Also, since I dont' think the custard ingredients are complete (you don't say how much milk to add, etc), I just used the vanilla custard from your strawberry tart recipe and it was divine! Thanks for posting.
