A gluten free strawberry tart is not that complicated after all, trust me ! We loved doing this recipe, it is soooo fresh and healthy that you will want to eat it every single day !
- An hour of prep time.
- 25 min cooking time
- for about 6 people
For the shortbread dough:
- 250 g gluten-free flour
- 100 g sugar
- 1 egg + 1 depending on consistency
- 120 g butter or 10 cl vegetable oil
- 1 pinch of salt
For the custard:
- 1 vanilla bean
- 50 g caster sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch/ Maizena
- 3 egg yolks
- 23 cl almond milk
- 500 g strawberries
Let’s start with the custard.
STEP 1: In a bowl, mix the eggs, sugar and cornstarch.
STEP 2: Then in a saucepan, bring the milk to boil with the vanilla bean seeds.
STEP 3: Then pour the contents of the pan (straining it if you have used a bean) into the container with the egg-sugar-maizena preparation. Stir well until the mixture is homogeneous.
STEP 4: Cook the mixture over a low heat, stirring constantly with a whisk until the cream thickens. When it is ready, pour the pastry cream into a container and keep it in a cool place for 2 hours.
STEP 5: In a bowl prepare the pastry: mix the dry ingredients (flour, salt and sugar.) Then add the butter cut into small cubes and the egg and mix it all together to make a ball of pastry. You can do this in a food processor or by hand.
Leave the dough to rest in a cool place for at least 1 hour. It will be easier to spread. Take it out a little before working it to put it in the mould.
STEP 6: To work the dough place it between two sheets of baking paper and then roll it out with a rolling pin. Put it in the pie dish keeping the baking paper underneath it will facilitate the removal from the mold.
STEP 7: Prick the dough with a fork and add a chain or baking balls.
STEP 8: Bake the dough for 25 minutes in an oven preheated to 180°C.
STEP 9: When the tart base has cooled, pour in the custard and smooth the surface. Then garnish as harmoniously as possible with the halved strawberries.
A little plus: To give a little more freshness you can add a few mint leaves.
Keep the tart in a cool place before serving.
If it is too crumbly add an egg, if it is too sticky add some flour.
