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 wish 0 stars were possible. :(
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
