Mini Fruit Tart

Easter Fruit tart, originally uploaded by lclea.

I took the holiday as an opportunity to cook since I haven’t been cooking complicated stuff lately. Had a nice Mango/Ginger glazed ham, cheesy potatoes and fresh fruit tarts.  Yummm.

Actually, this is a really easy recipe from Cooks Illustrated. The crust is a sort of sugar cookie and rolled out like a dream. The pastry cream didn’t even need to be strained. I have four more I’ll assemble and deliver tomorrow. Some lucky doc students/staff at UIUC will be on the receiving end of these lovely little goodies. They won’t know what hit ’em.

I will definitely make these again when there’s a better selection of fruit so the colors are prettier. Don’t know the rules about posting the tart recipe since it’s from a site that I pay to access, so I’ll err on the side of caution. If you want it let me know.  However, I can link to the delicious Mango-Ginger Ham at

Regardless, Happy Easter.
