For my husband’s birthday, I wanted to prepare a fruit tart as he tend to like very simple desserts and love to have the taste of the different ingredients. All he told me is that he wanted to have fruits in the dessert. Therefore no complicated pastry for him with heavy creams, complicated layers, blends of too different flavors… Freshness, lightness and fruits.
I wanted it to be a bit more elaborated and elegant than the basic fruit tarts the French often bake. So here is what I prepared, actually 4 of them, along with other desserts such as cannelés to grab or chocolate cakes (passion fruit and chocolate brownies) as we were 45!
Raspberry Tart with Light Lime Cream Filling
A very fresh red fruits tart with a little twist. A crunchy shortcrust pastry, an ultra light and aerated lime whipped cream and delicious fresh raspberries. This tart is very elegant and delicious. Pre-bake the shortcrust pastry. Make the lime whipped cream. Assemble when pastry has cooled down.
