Fresh strawberry tart and lemon custard

The preparation of the tart with fresh strawberries is very simple: for SHORT PASTRY put the flour on the work surface, almond flour, Salt, sugar, cinnamon, lemon zest and butter cut into small pieces. Knead everything with your fingertips until you get a crumb dough, then add the egg and continue to knead. If the dough is a little dry, you can add a tablespoon of milk, cold water or liquor (Rum, Maraschino). Once you have a smooth and homogeneous dough,, Wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

For the lemon cream (that I recommend you prepare in advance), Beat the egg yolks with the sugar in a saucepan until smooth and whitish, then add the flour, mixing well. At this point, to strengthen the lemon taste, You can also add a dash of limoncello. Heat the milk with the cream and lemon zest, bringing the liquid almost to a boil.

Drizzle the milk over the egg mixture, always blending or stirring, until the liquid is exhausted. Cook the mixture over low heat, stirring constantly, until the lemon custard has thickened. Pour the cream into a bowl, Cover with plastic wrap and allow to cool completely.

When the shortbread is cold, Roll it out to a thickness of about half a centimeter, Grease and flour a ring cake tin and line it with the shortcrust pastry on the bottom and sides. Prick the bottom with the prongs of a fork, Cover with parchment paper and place a handful of dried legumes or the appropriate ones inside CERAMIC BALLS FOR BAKING IN WHITE. Bake in a preheated oven at 170 degrees for 20 minutes, Then remove the parchment paper and legumes and continue cooking for another 5 minutes or until golden brown. The pastry should be golden and light. Allow to cool completely before unmolding.

Pour the cold custard into the tart. If you want, Before putting the cream in the pastry shell, you can also brush the inside with melted white chocolate in order to waterproof it. Level the lemon cream leaving one centimeter of space for the strawberries.

Wash strawberries, Remove the petical and cut them into small pieces. Place the strawberries on the cream until you get to the edge of the tart. Put a tablespoon of apricot jam and two tablespoons of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil for one minute and allow to cool. Brush the strawberries with this mixture until they are shiny. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Bon appétit!
