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
5 eggs
Raspberry jam
fresh raspberries
icing sugar
whipped cream
white chocolate
a sieve
baking paper
a brush
a scissors
a drill
a whisk
vanilla extract
funnel
squeezy bottle
toothpick
Nutella

Start with the pastry:

  1. 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.
  2. Prick it and pop it in the oven one at a time.
  3. Now for the fillings! (Suzelle CU)

Fillings:

I am making Creme Patisserei! French for Custard.

  1. 1 ½ cups of milk bubbling on the stove.
  2. Add eggs, sugar and vanilla extract into a bowl and beat until it becomes a light creamy consistency.
  3. Add 3 TBS of flour and half of the warm milk into your egg mixture. Keep whisking!
  4. Now add it all back into the pot with the rest of the milk and whisk it over the stove until it thickens.
  5. Let it cool and pop it in the fridge.
  6. 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:

  1. Layer one! Spread on some whipped cream and raspberry coolie.
  2. Place the next layer on top and cover with your custard cream. I’m using a Zip Lokie, who needs a bag pipe?
  3. Next layer! Add more cream and raspberries!
  4. Melt your white chocolate and spread it on the last layer.
  5. Take your squeazy bottle and pipe little dots in a spiral. Be careful. Keep Going
  6. 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.
  7. Add it on the top of our tower
  8. 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.
