fruit Custard Pies and tarts
Custard is a liquid mixture that contains eggs and sets whenit is cooked. The best-known custards, such as crème bruléeor crème caramel, are made with milk or cream, but custardscan also be made with purees of fruit or vegetables—a pump-kin pie, for example, is lled with pumpkin custard. Anyfruit can be used to make a fruit custard; the sugar shouldbe adjusted according to how sweet the fruit is. The custardllings for fruit custard tarts and pies are very similar tofruit curds except that fruit curds are cooked on the stove andusually contain butter, while fruit custard llings are bakedin the oven and contain cream. Though fruit custard tarts ortartlets make ne stand-alone desserts, they can also be usedas the base for raw fruit tarts—just arrange berries or otherfruit on top.
