Tarte Aux Fruit ( Fruite Tarte )

On day 16th of our Quarantine Cooking, Luc came with the idea of making his favorite birthday dessert a Tarte Aux Fruits ( Fruit Tart ). There is less to do with the oven but it is indeed delicious.

A traditional fruit tart is going to be a pie crust, pate sablé as much as possible, cooked with nothing in it. Then you apply a layer of Creme Pratissiére et top it with an assortment of seasonal fresh fruits.

 

Ingredients:

Crust:

Ingredients Crust:

  • 2 cup of flour or 250 gr
  • 1 stick of butter or 120 gr
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tsp of sugar
  • 5 tbsp 70 ml of water

Recipe Crust:

Note that if you are using a pre-made pie crust, start at step 7

  1. Take the butter out of the fridge to soften for about 1 hour
  2. Place the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl

  5. Put in the water and mix briefly. Try to not over mix
  6. Form into a ball and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest

  8. Roll out the dough and place it in a pie dish
  9. With a fork, make holes in the dough
  10. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 400 F. You may want to cover the edges of the crust with foil to prevent them form burning. Bake till golden
  11. Let the crust cool off completely before moving to the assembly
