Spring is in the air! Every year around Easter, I start making fruit tarts. This is a very simple tart to make and is wonderful to share with friends after a dinner party. Of course you can use any fruits you prefer, I just happened to have blackberries and strawberries on hand.
The great thing about this dessert is you can make the actual pastry tarts two days ahead and the pastry cream the night before. Early in the morning you can assemble your tarts and have them ready for the afternoon or evening. I make my favorite pie crust, luscious pastry cream, fruits and a simple glaze to add flavor and sheen to the fresh fruits and your done!
