Pistachio custard tart

Similar in texture to a classic rich French custard tart, this version has the same sweetcrust pastry case, but the filling has a delicious pistachio flavour, rather than the normal vanilla.

Step by step recipe

1 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #1Roll out 250 g Sweetcrust pastry (pâte sablée) to the shape of your tin or mould; mine is rectangular here. 5 min.
2 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #2Pick up the rolled-out pastry by rolling it loosly around the rolling pin... 1 min.
3 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #3...and unroll it over the tin.

This is a way of transfering the pastry and lining the tin with less chance of it breaking.
1 min.
4 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #4Make sure the pastry sits right down into the bottom of the tin... 3 min.
5 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #5...then trim of the overhanging edge. 1 min.
6 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #6Put the lined tin to wait in the fridge.
7 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #7Prepare the pistachio custard: bring 250 g Sweetcrust pastry (pâte sablée) to the boil, then take off the heat.

Set aside.
8 min.
8 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #8Put into a bowl: 4 eggs, 100 g caster sugar, 10 g Vanilla sugar and 80 g Pistachio powder or paste. Mix well with a whisk. 2 min.
9 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #9Add 80 g cornflour to finish and mix again. 2 min.
10 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #10Pour the hot milk over the pistachio mixture and stir gently to mix. 1 min.
11 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #11Pour this mixture back into the saucepan through a strainer to remove any bits and give a smooth custard.

Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).
1 min.
12 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #12Put the saucepan back on low heat and cook the custard gently for a few minutes until it thickens slightly.

This is so that we won't make the pastry soggy by pouring in a filling that is too liquid.
5 min.
13 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #13Pour the filling into the pastry case and put in the oven immediately. Bake for about 30 minutes. 30 min.
14 Pistachio custard tart : Photo of step #14Leave to cool before serving.

Remarks

Depending on whether you prefer a stronger or more subtle pistachio flavour, you can alter the weight of pistachio paste in the recipe.
