European Strawberry Tart

European Strawberry Tart

Strawberry Tart is one of my favorite desserts. The simplicity of the shortbread crust combined with  the delicious sweetness of vanilla custard and fresh juicy strawberries is the absolute highlight of my summer.

European Patisseries are famous for their  colorful not to mention mouthwatering displays of fruit tarts. Strawberry, blueberries, raspberries and apple, are among the most common.

By the way, you can try an almond custard also or even a coconut custard for a tropical twist. The origin of fruit tarts go back a long way. Back to the Middle Ages as a matter of fact, where custard was eaten alone or combined with seasonal fruits to make pies or tarts. Strawberries are rich in vitamin C and potassium with 8 berries giving the equivalent of 1/2 of a medium orange. Now that’s a lot of vitamin C. Furthermore, they are low in calories: 1 cup of berries is only 50 calories.
