Mini Fruit Tart Cooking Instructions

To make a Tart Crust:

  • In a bowl mix sifted flour, icing sugar, salt, butter and egg until it becomes a dough and knead.
  • Sprinkle some flour to your working area and knead it to form a ball and wrap in a cling film.
  • Refrigerate the dough for about 25 to 30 minutes or until it is workable state.
  • When the dough is ready knead on a floured surface and cut into 12 portions.
  • Press dough on prepared tins and prick with fork. Refrigerate and let it rest for another 20 minutes before baking.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180C (350F), for about 15-18 minutes or until lightly brown.
  • Let it cool down completely before removing to avoid breaking the crust.

To make the Custard Filling:

  • Heat the milk in a saucepan just until boils then fire off.
  • In a bowl whisk egg yolks and sugar until smooth, then add vanilla extract.
  • Add sifted flour and corn flour and whisk to combine.
  • Add the hot milk, pour a quarter part to temper the egg mixture and whisk vigorously.
  • Pour the remaining warm milk and stir constantly.
  • Place custard mixture into a saucepan and heat over a low fire.
  • Whisk constantly to avoid lumps and stir until thickens.
  • Fire off and let it cool completely.
  • In a small bowl place a strainer and put a half cup of marmalade and pour a tablespoon of hot water and sieve together, discard any bits.

Finally to assemble the mini Fruit Tarts:

  • Prepare the cooled tart crust, glaze, custard filling and fresh sliced fruits.
  • Brush bottom and sides of tart crust lightly with glaze.
  • Fill tart crust with custard mixture full and decorate with fresh fruit slices.
  • Lastly, brush fruits and custard with glaze to avoid from scorching and oxidizing. Refrigerate for 10 minutes more, to firm up a little bit and ready to serve.
