Fruit Tarts

Ta-da!!!! I have gotten over the traumatic failed cookies baking experience. The success of this Chocolate Chip Cookies was such a morale booster and it spurred me to try the Fruit Tarts recipe. The source for this Fruit Tarts recipe is M4M.





Fruit Tarts

Yields 13 Tarts

Tart shells

Ingredients:
125g butter (soften at room temp)
62.5g caster sugar
1/4 egg
250g plain flour


Method:

Cream the butter with caster sugar until white and creamy.

Add egg and continue to beat.

Fold in flour until it becomes dough.

Line the small tart tins with dough.

Poke holes using a fork on the tart shells.

Bake at 175C until edge slightly brown.

Slide tart out and let it cool down.


Creme Patissiere:

Ingredients:
500ml milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
5 egg yolks
125 g castor sugar
25g plain flour
25g corn flour


Method:

Heat the milk and vanilla essence gently until just boiling.

Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Beat the egg yolks and sugar until pale and thick, then stir in the flour and corn flour.

Gradually stir the milk into the egg mixture.

Pour the custard into the saucepan and heat gently, beating continuously until mixture thickens and boils.

Boil for 1 min, stirring continuously, remove from heat and cool.

If the custard is lumpy, just stir hard to break up the lumps.

Scoop the cooled custard into each tart shell, decorate top with fruits.

    Jcheng, welcome to my blog! :)

    I am sorry the recipe is from a private source which I am at no liberty to reveal. Recently, someone shared a Choco Chip cookie recipe at Nurkochen which is just as good and simple. If you are interested, the link is provided in my blog. HTH!
