This Mixed Berry Tart, made with a sweet French pastry crust and rich lemon pastry cream, was developed in partnership with California Giant Berry Farms. As always, all opinions expressed are my own.
I cannot even wrap my head around the fact that Labor Day weekend is only a week away! Where did this summer go? I feel like we were just talking about the arrival of farmer’s market season and my first shipments of California Giant’s gorgeous strawberries!
I, for one, am holding onto warm weather recipes for as long as I can. Before we trade in shorts and sandals for cozy sweaters and boots, I’m planning on a Labor Day weekend filled with a solidly summer menu. Of course, when Cal Giant sent me a sampling of their berries for an end-of-summer recipe, I knew a berry dessert would be at the top of my list!
There are few summer desserts I love more during than a fresh fruit tart. There’s nothing like biting into a forkful of crisp French pastry crust, with indulgent pastry cream and sweet, juicy berries.
A mixed berry tart makes an incredibly impressive appearance on any dessert table, and all of the components can be made ahead of time. In fact, for the best texture, it’s preferable to assemble the tart just before you’re ready to serve. It’s a great option for easy and elegant entertaining….
