Stage 5 - 30 min.

Prepare 200 g Diplomat cream, leaving the verbena to infuse in the milk (this can be made well in advance).

Your tarts are ready. Garnish with a sprig of verbena.
Remarks
You can make a different version with pears. Cooked in maple syrup, they work really well.

If you don't fancy making the diplomat cream, use confectioner's custard or chantilly cream instead.
Keeping
Should be eaten the same day.
