I'm in trouble...

Fruit tarts are a go-to guilty pleasure around here. I eat them anywhere and in any shape or form - at La Madeleine, at Croissant Brioche, in the frozen isle at Trader Joe's... you name it. And goodness, am I in trouble... I found the easiest homemade fruit tart recipe ever! These take about 10-15 minutes to make (with a microwave, nonetheless!) and are delicious and remarkably dangerous! Here's what you'll need to get addicted as well...


1 pack of frozen mini tart shells

2-3/4 cups milk 

β…” cup sugar

ΒΌ cup cornstarch

β…› teaspoon salt

4 egg yolks

2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Add milk, sugar, cornstarch, salt, and egg yolks, (in that order) to blender. Blend 5 seconds and pour into 2-quart glass microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 6 minutes on HIGH, whisking until smooth after 3 minutes, then every minute thereafter.

Add butter and vanilla and whisk until smooth.


Fill each baked tart shell (per the instructions provided) with cream filling. Top with fruit of your choice. Use any jelly you have and brush to dab some shininess on each piece of fruit. It's OK if some drips onto the cream.

Let cool a bit and enjoy!!
