Fruit Tart


( Hey I baked this during weekend, not today alrite ;p Im really SICK today)
I truly fall-in-love with the globe-grapes that I bought ! really "huge". I put 1 in my mouth and I can't speak properly !

This is the tart that I used to eat quite often when I was working in Hotel. u know, those mini-fruit-tart, with peach / strawberry/ pineapple on top which served during tea-break / hi-tea . Normally what I did was, I finished all the fruits , Slurrp all the custard on top and threw the base away! haha !
I think this recipe is worth to try, especially the "Pudding"! really GOOD ! Ur waistband won't tightening from that ! It's made of fruit juice!




Ingredients
Tart Base:
150g plain flour
2 T sugar
80g butter
1 egg yolk
1 T water

50g Chocolate (melted)

400ml of any juice / milk ( I used juice here)
3 T cornstarch

4. Add in egg yolk and water, mix till dough if form.
5. Place a dough into tart molds, shape and trim the edges.
6. Place a square aluminum foil / baking sheet over the dough and weight with beans.
(This is to prevent the base puff up and cause uneven to the base when it's in the oven)

7. Bake for 30-35 minutes or till tart base turns golden brown.
8. Cool on wire rack.


Pudding:

  1. Mix together eggs, sugar, cornstarch, juice/milk in a pot.

  4. Mix in butter.

Tart Base Coated:
1. Melt the chocolate
2. Spread the tart base with a layer of melted chocolate, Chill in fridge till chocolate sets.
3. Fill tarts with just cooked pudding when the chocolate has set.
4. Sreve with Desired fruits, and brush some (melted sugar + water) on the fruits for Shiny-good-looking-tart.
