I thought the custard was really good, but the crust wasn't what I expected. I followed the recipe to the letter. I also had issues with the jelly being too thin and running everywhere, but that's probably just an issue with the brand I bought.

I actually ended up making this twice- once for a friend who only eats fruit tarts for dessert and the other for my dad's 54th birthday- all i have to say is in my houe we normally never finish a dessert but the other night, they all were asking for 2nds and the plate was clean. even though i could not taste it cuz of my stomache, i know that it was a 5 star recipe. well done.- p.s. i used kiwi, raspberries, and blueberries in addition to strawberries and glazed it with apricot jelly... PERFECT!

Absolutely delicious! Also made with fresh peaches & raspberries, with peach glaze. Nummy! Substitute 2 eggs whites for the egg in the pastry to avoid waste and it still comes out fine.

My family loved the crust, the glazed strawberries, the whipped cream. They complained bitterly about the custard, though -- because there wasn't more of it! I think the 'tart' concept was lost on them because they asked if next time I could make the custard layer about 3 inches thick. :)

Yummy! This is the first tart I ever tried to make. All of its parts turned out perfect; the crust was especially delicious. I added blueberries to fill in the gaps!

This was amazing! such a nice combination of flavors within each layer! the crust especially was very nice...I wasn't sure whether I was supposed to pat it into just the bottom of the tart pan or also along the sides, so i did the sides just in case and it melted down while baking anyway. It still looked great. The strawberries take on that lovely glistening look when brushed with the jelly (btw, I couldn't find red currant jelly in my regular grocery store, so I just got strawberry jelly. be sure to get seedless, though--I could see how a heavily seeded strawberry jam might mess up the look, if not the texture, of the final product!) The custard was also heavenly--so refreshing and deceptively light with all that butter and stuff in it. Thank you evelyn, for another keeper!!!
