How to Make

  • Mix the flour, sugar, and salt in a big bowl. Cut the room temperature butter into cubes and work it into the flour mixture by hand. Once it is a coarse mixture, add the egg and the vanilla.
  • Continue mixing by hand until the dough comes together. Shape into a disc and cover with plastic film and let it rest for 30 minutes in the fridge.
  • Preheat the oven to 180c degrees C
  • Add the vanilla to the milk and heat on a medium fire.
  • In the meantime, mix the yolks with the sugar and salt using a whisk. Then add the cornstarch and mix a bit more.
  • When the milk is hot (steamy but not boiling) take it off the fire and add 1/4 of it to the yolk mixture, mixing throughly.
  • Then add back all the yolk mix into the milk and mix.
  • Back on the stove, heat up the milk mixture while whisking until it boils. Simmer, let it boil for 1 minute and then remove.
  • Add the butter and mix well, cover with a plastic film touching the surface.
  • Roll out the tart dough with a rolling pin and some flour, then move it to a 23 cm tart dish.
  • Fix the edges, you will have a little bit of leftover dough (think extra cookies).
  • Pierce the bottom on the pan with a fork and bake (with baking beans if you have or else skip) for 25 minutes.
  • Once it's golden, add the pastry cream on top of the shell and bake again for 8 minutes. This will help the cream set.
  • Then cool in the fridge and top with the berries of your choice.
