Baking Challenge

Designer Fruit Tart

Give your tarts a name based on the flavors and decoration – and tell us about your recipe.

Lemon-Berry Tart. I made a sweet-crust dough which I baked completely; no soggy bottoms! I made a lemon-cream filling by mixing a homemade lemon curd with some cream cheese. I made a slightly-sweetened whipped cream and carefully added that it. I spread it in the shell and decorated it with strawberries, blackberries, peaches and blueberries.

Now that you survived this challenge, what words of wisdom do you have to share?

It wax super fun to make the design! I didn’t pre-plan and just went with the flow.

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist.

Nothing but in a perfect world I’d use local fruit for decoration.

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
