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.

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!

I think some of the measurements were off:for the custard I couldn't mix the 2 egg yolks with 1/4 Cup sugar and 1/4 Cup flour-it was too thick also the pastry, the only liquid was the 3 egg yolks to 1 1/2 Cup flour and the butter and sugar, I was not able to put the dough together-it was too dry Maybe check the quantities?

Very easy recipe if you follow the directions carefully. The dough is a bit crumbly, but I had no problem rolling it out between wax paper. The directions for the custard did not say when to add vanilla, so I just added it before I let it cool, as per one suggestion I read. I made mine with all strawberries on top and it looked and tasted great!

I've lost my words for how terrible this recipe was. The dough was far too crumbly and even adding water to it doesn't help the situation. Waste of time and ingredients.

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
