Fruit Tart

I really enjoyed making this week’s recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie from Dorie Greenspan’s book, Baking Chez Moi.
I love pastry cream. It is one of my favourite things in the world to eat.
I made this part of the recipe first, a vanilla flavoured pastry cream.
Next I made the crust which turned out wonderfully delicate and flaky. I’m getting to know my new ovens and following directions, I removed the base at 25 minutes to take the weights off the pastry and found the base darker than I had hoped. Luckily there was no burnt taste. Other than that, I had fun making and decorating this tart.
Everyone loved it. What is there not to love?!

  1. Love the pattern of fruit on your tart – very striking. I adore pastry cream too so this tart was a winner.

  2. it looks so gorgeous! and i agree that this one was delicious. (i’ve been baking the sweet tart dough at a temperature a bit lower than what she says in the book, 375F instead of 400F, because i found it was always getting too dark.)

  3. Your tart looks beautiful and you are correct, what’s not to like? Delicious.

  4. Your tart is stunning! I baked the crust at 350°F convection bake. That’s worked for me.

  5. Beautiful! I love seeing how everyone decorated their tart.

  6. Stunning presentation!! I love it. I agree with everyone…I also bake that tart dough at 375 and cover the edges with foil. 🙂
