A Big Hit A Strawberry Tart

A Big Hit A Strawberry Tart

Even while raising children, this is a tart that's easy to make. This is also a great gift to take when going to someone's house.

Ingredients: 18cm Tart

Tart crust:
Cake flour
120 g
Egg
1/2
Butter
50 g
Sugar
40 g
Custard:
Cake flour
2 tablespoons
Cornstarch
2 tablespoons
Sugar
65 g
Egg yolk
2
Milk
300 ml
Brandy (you can omit)
2 teaspoons
Strawberries
1 pack

Steps

1. Tart crust Soften the butter to room temperature. If you are short on time, heat it in the microwave for one minute at 200W.
2. In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar together with a whisk until it turns white.
3. Pour in the beaten egg a little at a time. Mix until smooth.
4. Sift the flour into the bowl. Switch to a spatula and mix together by cutting into the mixture.
5. When the dough becomes crumbly, clump it together, and put into a plastic bag. Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. (This time, I doubled the recipe)
6. Roll out the chilled dough and tightly pack it into the pan to form the crust. Poke holes into the crust with a fork. Bake in an oven preheated to 180°C for 23 minutes.
7. For the custard: Put the sugar, flour, and cornstarch into a bowl. Put in a little bit of the milk to create a paste.
8. Put the egg yolk in the center of the mixture and mix thoroughly. Pour in the remaining milk and mix well without creating froth.
9. Heat in a microwave for 2 minutes at 600W. Take it out and mix. Microwave for another minute, mix, microwave for a final minute, and mix.
10. If it's still too thick, microwave for 20-30 seconds at a time until it's at the consistency you prefer. Even if it's creamy, it will set as it cools.
11. When the custard is cool, mix in the brandy. Finally, transfer to a serving dish.
