When you find big juicy raspberries on sales for 25 cents you know it’s time to make raspberry tarts!
Since I haven’t figured out how to make gluten free puff pastry dough yet I just used gluten free pie crust. I use this recipe and substitute gluten free flour and a pinch of xanthan gum for the whole wheat flour. I’m not going to lie, It is not AS flakey in texture but it works.
Roll out pie crust dough and gently drape it over the pan.
fold the crust edges over. Then place all crust lined pans in the freezer while waiting for the oven.
In a bowl add egg yolks,
sour cram, sugar and lemon zest.
Mix and then realize the eggs are small and decide to add one more egg and a little more sugar. Then mix again.
Bake crusts at 400 for 10 minutes.
When crusts are starting to look done, not golden brown done but not raw dune. Remove from the oven
and promptly pour filling into them
and return to the oven and bake until
Return to oven for 10 minutes. Then let cool completely.
When you’re ready to serve, get out the 25 cent berries!
Arrange raspberries on top of custards.
Arrange in whatever pattern you like, I like hexagons.
drizzle the raspberries with the Fruit Glaze.
And then dust with powdered sugar.
Serve right away.
It was good, it was very good.
