Tart Crust

  1. Add all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Use a scrapper, dice up the mixture quickly until they resemble crumbs.
  3. Press and knead until they come together.
  4. Wrap in cling wrap and store the dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes

  8. Preheat your oven to 170°C (while waiting, cover the the tart tray with cling wrap and set in the chiller before baking)
  9. Bake your tart crust for 20~30 minutes until nicely browned.
  10. After baking, set aside to cool. Remove from tart crust from the tray.

Custard Cream

  1. Add sugar, flour and egg yolk into a heat proof bowl. Mix them together with a hand whisk.
  2. Heat milk in a small saucepan until boiling, remove from heat.
  3. Slowly add the hot milk into the flour mixture, and whisk quickly to achieve an even mixture.
  4. Pour mixture back to saucepan and cook on low heat. Keep whisking until the mixture thickens into custard-like texture.
  5. Remove from heat, transfer the custard cream into a container and store in the chiller for at least 1 hour before use. The custard cream will harden just a little when chilled.

Glaze

  1. Add ingredients into a bowl.
  2. Heat the mixture over a hot water bath, or in a microwave for 20 seconds at 700W.
  3. Let it cool slightly..

Assembling the Tarts

  1. Fill the tart crust with custard cream.
  2. Use a plate of similar size as the tart, and do a ‘mock’ arrangement of the fruits. This will give you an idea as to whether the fruits are enough and figure out the arrangement.
  3. Using a pastry brush, brush a thin layer of the glaze on top of the fruits.

Enjoy your afternoon tea!
