Sunday Sweets - Strawberry Kiwi Tart with Lemon Glaze (no gelatin)

Hello lovelies! It's been a while since I posted a Sunday Sweet recipe so today I wanted to share with you a simple dessert recipe that we made yesterday.  My Aunt made a strawberry kiwi tart with a lemon syrup glaze covering the fruit instead of the typical gelatin glaze used for fruit tarts. It turned out fantastic! 





Ingredients for the pie crust:

 - 400grams flour
 - one teaspoon baking powder
 - 1 egg and 1 yolk
 - 180 grams sugar
 - 200 grams room temperature butter 
 - zest from 1 lemon






Wrap the pie crust dough in plastic wrap and let sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.





Add beans (or pie weights) to keep the crust from bubbling up during baking.


Bake in a preheated oven at 375°F for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. 


Ingredients for the egg custard

 - 500ml whole milk
 - 4 egg yolks
 - 100grams granulated sugar
 - 50 grams all-purpose flour
 - zest from 1 lemon


Mix the ingredients well and stir continuously in the same direction on low heat until you achieve the typical thickness of egg custard. 



 Wash and cut the fruit you are using and decorate to your liking. 



 Lemon glaze

In a sauce pan add a half cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, a half cup of water, 100 grams of sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for about 3 minutes and then let cool. Once cooled, pour the glaze over the tart and keep refrigerated until it is ready to be served. 


Enjoy :-)

    It looks great, I don't think it's something I'll ever have as my wife doesn't like custard snif snif

    1. Aww that's too bad about the egg custard. You could probably use pudding in place of the egg custard if you prefer :-)

  10. That trick with the beans is new to me. I had no idea you could do that. I'll have to try that next time. This looks pretty amazing.

    1. Well the crust will bubble up when you bake it without anything in it so it turns out better if you add some "weights" to it. Thanks for commenting friends!
