This beautiful fruit tart is a perfect summer time dessert. The rich Lemon Curd and beautiful berries makes this tart absolutely perfect.
Fresh Lemon Curd
4 Tablespoons Butter
1/4 Cup Raw Sugar
1 Organic Egg
1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
pinch of Sea Salt
1/4 Cup Berries of choice
In a medium bowl combine together the flour, sea salt, sugar then whisk. Add in the butter 1 Tablespoon at a time and work it with your hands, then add in the egg and mix well. If the mixture is too dry and is not coming together add in 1 Tablespoon of water. Form the dough ball then wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 min.
When ready to bake the pastry crust, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Whether using 4 mini tart pans or one large one, press the dough to the bottom of the pan to form your tart. Place the tart pans on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. If you choose to add the Dark Chocolate, pull the tarts out of the oven the last 2 minutes and place some chocolate on each tart and allow it melt in the oven for the remaining time needed to bake.
When the tarts are cooled you are ready to assemble the lemon curd then your beautiful berries. Chill in the refrigerator.
I LOVE these tarts!!
