Strawberry tart

Perfect summer afternoon treat, Strawberry tart from Dan Lepard’s Short and Sweet. Sweet short pastry, a creamy ‘custard’ made with milk, egg white, cornflour, bit of sugar and vanilla and then lightened with creme fraiche, all topped with fresh strawberries. Very light and moreish. The pastry came out very short and crisp, not too sweet and I’ve used half fat milk and creme fraiche so am telling self this is actually moderately ‘healthy’. Have only finished it an hour ago and have already had two slices. Impressed.
