Summer is here and I finally got around to typing one of the most simplest recipes up. Flaky pastry topped with vanilla custard and fresh Central Otago Cherries and Raspberries with a scattering of white chocolate crisped up in the oven and would be perfect served with vanilla ice cream or cream.
I used what fruit I had on hand these would also be delicious with sliced apricots, peaches or any stone fruit and berries!
Fresh Raspberry, Cherry and Custard Tarts
1/2 cup cherries, stones removed
1/2 cup raspberries
1/4 cup white chocolate, roughly chopped
1 cup cold vanilla custard
1 sheet of flaky pastry, cut into 4 squares
- Pre-heat oven to 180 degress.
- Line baking tray with baking paper and space the 4 cut out squares of pastry evenly apart on tray.
- Dollop 1/4 custard on the base of each piece of pastry, trying to keep it roughly in the center spread out slightly leaving a ring of pastry around the edge. Top with cherries, raspberries and white chocolate.
- Bake for 15 minutes until golden serve warm finished with fresh mint and a dusting of icing sugar and a side of ice-cream or cream.
