Step by step recipe

1 Strawberry tart : Photo of step #1Prepare 700 g Confectioner's custard (Crème pâtissière, or French pastry cream), cover and leave to cool, stirring from time to time with a whisk. 35 min.
2 Strawberry tart : Photo of step #2Roll out the sweetcrust pastry, line the tart tin or mould, then bake blind. Leave to cool on a wire rack. 1 hour
3 Strawberry tart : Photo of step #3If possible, seal the bottom of the pastry case with 50 g white chocolate. 20 min.
4 Strawberry tart : Photo of step #4Spread 700 g Confectioner's custard (Crème pâtissière, or French pastry cream) in an even layer in the bottom of the tart.

It is not essential, but this is easier with a forcing bag.
10 min.
5 Strawberry tart : Photo of step #5Cut the stalks off the strawberries and arrange them on top of the custard layer.

There are various ways to do this. The simplest, in my opinion, is to stand whole fruit vertically and work inwards towards the centre.
10 min.
6 Strawberry tart : Photo of step #6Then finish with a few strawberries cut in half vertically to form a sort of flower in the centre. 10 min.
7 Strawberry tart : Photo of step #7You can glaze the tart if you wish, but this is not essential.

Keep in the fridge, but remember to take it out 30 minutes before serving.
5 min.

Remarks

The proportions are given for a 26 cm (10 inch) diameter tart.

Do choose your strawberries carefully and taste them if possible to make sure that you are buying the ones with the most flavour.
