Eat Your Tart Out

This week in class we made tarts. My favorites were the fruit, lemon curd, and chocolate. The fruit tart is made with Pate Brisee, a light and flaky crust, then filled with pastry cream and decorated with fruit. The chocolate tart is made with Pate Sablee, a rich and crumbly crust, then filled with a rich ganache and topped with a hazelnut and chocolate shavings. The lemon tart is also made with Pate Sablee then filled with lemon curd and finished with meringue. I thought they all turned out to be adorable and great for many occasions.
