Method

Bake Pie Crust

​​​1. Preheat oven to 180°F (360°F).


​2. On a lightly floured surface roll out the pastry dough, 30 cm diameter for a 23 cm tart pan. Carefully place the dough into a 23 cm (9 inch) tart pan. Press the edges into the sides of the pan. With a fork, poke little holes in the bottom of the dough.

3.​ Cover top of pie crust with wax paper. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake 10-15 minutes longer, or until golden-brown. Cool on a wire rack.  

Make The Cream

​​4. ​In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks and sugar, until they form a creamy texture.

5. In a saucepan, mix the cornstarch with a little milk in a pan. Pour into the egg yolks, add lemon zest, and mix well. Return the mixture to the pan, add lemon zest and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, until thickens.


5. Pour the cream into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. The wrap should be in contact with the cream to stop a crust forming. Let cool.


6. ​Peel and slice the kiwis and mandarins.

7. Spread the cream into pie crust. Arrange the mandarins and kiwis on top. Add the grapes (optional). Serve child.
