Quick Classic Berry Tart

Thanks to Cristine of CookingwithCristine for choosing the Quick Classic Berry Tart this week. Quick in the sense that you can make the crust and and pastry cream ahead of time, then assemble just before serving.

Only strawberries are a deal now as they are available at the berry farms around where I live.  However, I love the idea of the raspberries and blueberries, but maybe later in the summer. The tart is fabulous! It’s perfectly French as Dorie suggests. More than a few years ago, we toured the Alsace region of France and I remember seeing many berry tarts just like these.

Late posting this, but as they say-“better late than never”

    Yes, your tart does look like something you'd see in a French bakery. Well done!

    Beautiful picture of a beautiful tart. Love the big luscious strawberries. It'll show up in my house again too – with fresh berries.

    Somehow I missed this the week we did tarts. Didn't even think about using strawberries but yours look irresistible. Always enjoy looking at your photography and analyzing it–trying to learn to do better myself.
