Fruit Tart


This tart I decided to make just to enjoy the last days of summer. Although I made it a week ago, I'm posting it just now. Quite a week I had!!! So simple but a very tasty tart with figs, blackberries and cherries.

What we need:

for tart crust:


400 gr flour
200 gr brown sugar
200gr butter
1 teaspoon cinammon
a pinch of salt
a pinch of baking powder
3 tbsp of water

for pastry cream:

1 l of milk
250 gr sugar
50 gr of corn starch
50 gr of flour
2 eggs
2 tbsp of vanilla extract or 1 vanilla stick
1 tbsp of butter
fruit for decoration

What we have to do:

1. Mix dry crust ingredients in a food processor and add water. Put the crust into a ball and place in a fridge for 30 min. Then roll it out to fit baking dish. Fork the tart. Then cover with baking paper and pour over some dry peas or beans. Bake for 30 min in 180C oven, then remove the beans and paper and leave for 10 more minutes.

2. Prepare pastry cream. Boil milk and sugar. Then in a seperate bowl mix eggs, vanilla, flour and starch, add a drizzle of milk. Mix it and slowly pour into boiling milk. Whisk carefully and boil until cream starts thickening. Then add 1 tbsp of butter and remove from the heat. Mix it well again. Then pour into the tart. Let it cool a bit and then decorate with fruit. I also added some tart jelly on the top. Leave it to cool completely and serve!
