My Homemade Pastry Cream Fruit Tart

My friend came over to join me in a baking session, and it turned out we chose to make something that required no baking at all! Using my new Miette cookbook, we chose to make a berry cream tart.

It came out really well, a little soft, but super tasty. It was very simple to make, and I switched up some things which saved a lot of time. I bought the pie crust pre-made at the grocery store, and I used vanilla extract instead of steeping a vanilla bean.

The custard is rich in flavor, the salty graham cracker crust balances out the sweetness, and the berries add the perfect tartness. For a light summery dessert this is amazing!


  1. Wow, Alex, that looks awesome! Now I'm hungry!

  2. those raspberries look like nipples. juicy nipples. Nice work
