Where did this summer go? I, for one, am holding onto warm weather recipes for as long as I can.
There are few summer desserts I love more during than a fresh fruit tart. There’s nothing like biting into a forkful of crisp French pastry crust, with indulgent pastry cream and sweet, juicy berries.
I love adding a hint of lemon with berries, so I made a lemon pastry cream for this mixed berry tart. I used my standard creme patisserie recipe and added a touch of fresh lemon juice and zest after cooking.
