This gluten-free tart requires a lot less effort than you might think thanks to its “wow factor.” A flaky graham cracker crust filled with creamy custard and topped with seasonal fruit.

The custard contains Marukan organic seasoned rice vinegar and if the idea of ​​vinegar in custard bothers you, let me explain. The vinegar adds brightness and balances the richness of the eggs and cream. I assure you, this custard is truly addictive!

This tart will last several days in the refrigerator making it perfect for summer entertaining. But don't worry about leftovers – I'm pretty sure there won't be any.

For the fruit we used a combination of fresh berries and cherries garnished with mint leaves. But you can use any fruit you want: stone fruits (e.g. plums, apricots and peaches) work beautifully too.

Happy summer!

For the custard

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the cream and cornstarch until the cornstarch is completely dissolved. Add the eggs and egg yolks and beat until completely combined.

  • Add the vinegar to a medium saucepan, bring to a boil and let boil until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the sugar and water and bring back to the boil. Gradually add the vinegar mixture to the egg mixture, whisking constantly. Don't add the vinegar mixture too quickly or you will get scrambled eggs. Pour the mixture into the pan and return to a boil, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and add the butter and vanilla, stirring until the butter is melted. Strain the custard into a clean bowl. Allow to cool then pour the custard into the prepared tart shell. Cover with cling film, placing the cling film directly on the custard. Store in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.

  • Before serving, garnish with fruit and mint sprigs.
