Sorry I’ve been so absent these past 2 weeks! Things have been a little crazy around here and I’ve just been so busy! I’m back now, and I’ll try to stick to my weekly posting goal. This week I have a strawberry tart to share with you! The weather has been absolutely gorgeous, so this past weekend we had a barbecue to kick off the spring season. It was wonderful to see our friends, soak up the gorgeous sun, and eat some delicious foods.
The recipe I used was for Ina Garten’s strawberry tarts (individual mini tarts) and I turned it into one large tart.
Here’s the recipe! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/strawberry-tarts-recipe.html
I took step by step photos – here they are:
I should have added corn starch before adding the milk, but I was bad and forgot. Don’t be like me! However, I did add the corn starch on the stove top and it all worked out, so if you do make that mistake know that it will turn out fine!
Putting it together:
Well, there you go! From start to finish. I personally hardly let the pastry cream cool at all, and I think letting it cool longer would have enhanced the flavor. So next time that will be the game plan. I made it a few hours in advance and let it sit in the fridge until it was time to eat dessert. That was great, and it tasted so fresh and wonderful. Go make it on a Saturday afternoon! It’s the perfect way to celebrate beautiful weather.
