This Mother's Day we celebrated with a beautiful Berry Tart. I wouldn't say it was "Quick", but it was quite good and worth the effort.
I love fresh berries and whatever reason we have to eat more is good by me. I actually made two tarts, one for my mother and sister, and one for my husband's mother and grandmother. We had a fun day filled with family, and church. The best of it all.
The way to do this "quick", I believe, is to make the pastry cream and the crust the day before you assemble the tart. Then assembling is a snap. I made the pastry cream as directed, and I actually split it between the two tarts. It was plenty for both. For glazing, the recipe called for boiled red currant jelly, but I opted for fresh raw honey. It worked perfectly.
As you can see I prefer to use a ceramic tart pan vs a metal one. I usually have good results, but this time the crust seemed to stick. Maybe I played with it too long? Next time I will use some parchment paper. The berries I found were at their perfect ripeness, and the tart was delicious.
Thank you to Cristine for picking the recipe. It was a perfect accompaniment to our day! If you would like to see the recipe check her page or look on page 377 in Baking From My Home To Yours, by Dorie Greenspan. Don't forget to check out the TWD blog roll. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
