Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 40 min.

Prepare the sablé base with 350 g Breton sablé biscuit dough, as explained here.

Leave to cool, then use a brush to coat the top with 50 g white chocolate, melted over a bain-marie. Leave to set.

This coating stops the crémeux topping soaking into the sablé base, helping it to stay crisp.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Sit the sablé base on a sheet of cooking parchment, laid on a baking sheet, and place a dessert ring over it.

Stage 3 - 40 min.

Prepare a verbena crémeux, follwing the method for fruit crémeux, but replace the coulis with verbena-infused cream (heat the cream, then leave the verbena to infuse).

Pour on top of the sablé base.

Leave to set in the fridge for about an hour.

Stage 4 - 3 min.

When the crémeux is set, sit the tart (still in its dessert ring) on its serving plate.

Stage 5 - 15 min.

Arrange a layer of fresh strawberries on top. Use small ones if possible that do not need to be cut.

Stage 6 - 5 min.

Stage 7 - 1 min.

Decorate with a sprig of verbena.

Refrigerate before serving.
Remarks
This trio of sablé-crémeux-fruit works very well and lends itself to many variations. Another great topping duo is lime with strawberries, or why not try lemon with raspberries?
Keeping
A day or two in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Crème brulée
Crème brûlée (burned cream) is quite easy to prepare: it's a simple egg-cream dessert. The only difficulty is in making the delicious crunchy caramel layer on top. The perfect crème brulée (for me) is a cold and soft cream, with on top a nice hot caramel crust. This is a completely new version...
