by Feli Chic'Cuisine

​​​​This classic Fruits Tart is a true natural delight with a great aroma of fresh fruits.


Serves 8

  • 1 unbaked pastry shell

  • butter for the mold

  • 400g (14 oz ) mandarins

  • 4 kiwis

  • grapes (optional)

For the Cream

  • ​4 egg yolks

  • 4 Tbsp superfine sugar

  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch

  • 2 1/2 cups (350ml) milk

  • 1 lemon zest



​​​1. Preheat oven to 180°F (360°F).

​2. Roll out 2 disk of pastry, 30 cm for a 23 cm tart pan. Ease, lay it inside a pie plate. Press the dough into the pan so it fits tightly. Press the edges into the sides of the pan.

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


​​4. ​ Whisk together the egg yolks and sugar. Mix the cornstarch with a little milk in a pan. Pour onto the egg yolks, adds the cornstarch, and mix well. Return the mixture to the pan, add lemon zest and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes until thickens.

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

6. ​Peel and slice the kiwis and mandarins. Spread the cooled cream over pastry shell and arrange the mandarins and kiwis on top. Add the grapes (optional). Serve child.
