Quick Classic Berry Tart
This week's Tuesdays with Dorie pick is the Quick Classic Berry Tart. I've made this once before for Lydia's birthday and it was a big success. Lydia's birthday is in July when fresh berries are plentiful, at their peak, and relatively inexpensive. This being May, I had less fruit to choose from and what was available was pretty pricey.
However, making the tart is just plain fun. I made the crust ahead and froze it. The cream filling is also easy to make and I did so early in the morning. The really fun part to making this tart is decorating with fruit. I took a tour of our Wegman's superstore bakery case for ideas and decided to use fresh pineapple, kiwi, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. It did look beautiful! And the volunteers who ate it at the Thanksgiving Contra Dance Planning meeting thought so too.
