2 cups white flour
½ cup sugar
1 stick of butter
1 large egg
Zest of 1 lemon
¾ cup heavy cream
1 drop vanilla extract
½ cup custard
Fresh fruit of your preference (strawberries, kiwi, grapes, blueberries, etc.)
1 cup beans, chickpeas, or rice
Cut the butter in to small slices and mix it into the flour with your hands until it has the texture of breadcrumbs.
Add the egg and sugar to the mixture and knead until the dough is bound into a soft shape, then wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour
Remove the dough and roll it on a floured surface with a rolling pin, flipping halfway through
Roll the dough around a rolling pin so you have a cylinder, then unroll over a round baking pan. Gently press the edges, then cut off the excess dough
Cover the dough with parchment paper or foil. Pour the beans, chickpeas, or rice on top of the crust to prevent the dough from rising, then refrigerate for another 30 minutes
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes is up, remove from the oven, remove the chickpeas or rice and bake for another 5 minutes
Remove and let the dough cool
In a large bowl, add the cream and whisk until it has a whipped cream consistency, then add the custard and stir in a drop of vanilla extract
Pour the cream mixture into the tart
Slice the fruits into the shape and size of your choice, then arrange on top of the custard and serve.
