Strawberry Craze continues ......

Strawberry again ... this time round is strawberry tart.

I have a ready-made crust sitting in my fridge, and arm with the half punnet of strawberries left from baking the muffins, I made some custard, and then put them together ... tada ... here's my lovely strawberry tart (beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder ... LOL).
The custard recipe is taken from a book borrowed from the library and is said to be low fat. Anyway, I double the recipe as the original recipe is for small tarts only.
Ingredients:
(This is what I used for 8" tart crust)
1 piece ready-made 8" tart
1 cup water
8 tbsps sugar
4 tsps lemon juice
2 tsps lemon zest
4 tbsps custard powder
4 tbsps cornflour
3ooml skimmed milk
Half a punnet of strawberries (halved them)
(recipe from: Tasty Low Fat Desserts, Seashore Publishing)
Method:
1. Put custard powder & cornflour into a mixing bowl. Add milk & mix well. Set aside.
2. Boil water, add sugar & cook till all sugar is dissolved.
3. Stir in custard mixture from step 1 in a slow stream under low heat. Stir continuously until it thickens. Add lemon juice and zest. Mix well.
4. Scoop step 3 tart filling into the ready made tart crust. Top with strawberries or any kind of fruits of your liking.
5. Refrigerate until set. Serve.
