How to make a Heart Tart
Here’s my recipe for a Heart Tart! What is it? It is a tart in a shape of heart. Made in layers of crispy pastry, custard cream and white chocolate. Because friendships have layers. Marianne’s going to love this. She loves anything with layers, onions, a jerseys over polar necks, all kinds of layers!
You will need:
4 sheets of puff pastry. Flat is better
1 ½ cups of milk
¾ cup of castor sugar
pinch of saltVanilla essence
Start with the pastry:
- Cut out four hearts from your puff pastry sheets. I’m using a baking paper template. A cold pastry is a happy pastry. We’ll keep these little guys for later.
- Prick it and pop it in the oven one at a time.
- Now for the fillings! (Suzelle CU)
I am making Creme Patisserei! French for Custard.
- 1 ½ cups of milk bubbling on the stove.
- Add eggs, sugar and vanilla extract into a bowl and beat until it becomes a light creamy consistency.
- Add 3 TBS of flour and half of the warm milk into your egg mixture. Keep whisking!
- Now add it all back into the pot with the rest of the milk and whisk it over the stove until it thickens.
- Let it cool and pop it in the fridge.
- I am sieving some raspberry jam and funnelling it into a squeazy bottle.
Once your pastries are ready, lay them out to cool.
It’s time to assemble:
- Layer one! Spread on some whipped cream and raspberry coolie.
- Place the next layer on top and cover with your custard cream. I’m using a Zip Lokie, who needs a bag pipe?
- Next layer! Add more cream and raspberries!
- Melt your white chocolate and spread it on the last layer.
- Take your squeazy bottle and pipe little dots in a spiral. Be careful. Keep Going
- Drag a toothpick through the dots. It’s like join the dots. I knew that would come in handy one day. Look how it makes little hearts.
- Add it on the top of our tower
- Dust it with some icing sugar if you want to be fancy.
There’s heart. A tart from my heart. A heart tart. Let’s never be apart. Right from the start. Don’t put it in the shopping cart. Bart…. simpson or whatever. A poem.
