Strawberry Tart

This recipe is from a French website:

I have translated it for you, the measurements are kind of funny, it turns out fine if you measure very approximately like I do. It is delicious.

* 400 g Strawberries (14 oz)

* 1.6 cups flour
* 100 g butter
* 1 egg
* 0.4 cups sugar
* 1 pinch salt

* 1.4 cups milk
* 4 egg yolks
* 0.4 cups sugar
* 1/4 cup cornstarch
* 1 tsp. vanilla extrait


1. For crust: mix flour, salt and butter using pastry knife or your hands. Mix sugar and eggs separately. Mix the two mixture together.
2. Heat oven to 350 deg. F. Lay dough into pie pan (makes two nine-inch crusts). Cook for 15 to 20 minutes.
3. Mix cornstarch in a little cold mild. Boil the rest of the milk. Mix the egg yolks and sugar separately. Incorporate the cornstarch slowly, keep beating to prevent lumps. Boil for about 3 minutes (my wife thinks it needs more to prevent salmonella).
4. Pour cream mixture onto crusts. Cut strawberries in half and place on top of cream and let them cool and stiffen.
