Ingredients

For the curd:
For the coulis:
For the berries:

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

For the tart shells:

Combine the flour, butter and salt in a food processor and pulse until the butter is pea-size. Add the water and pulse just until the dough gathers together.

Take the dough out and place on a lightly floured work surface. Work gently into a ball, wrap in plastic and refrigerate until well-chilled, about 1 hour.

Take the dough out of the refrigerator and place on a lightly floured work surface. Divide into 8 equal portions. Roll each out into a circle to about 1/8-inch thickness, keeping the dough well-floured as you work. Then place each in its own tart mold and trim excess dough.

Bake for 10 to12 minutes or until tart shells are lightly brown. Remove from molds and refrigerate tart shells while preparing the lemon curd.

For the curd:

In large bowl set over double boiler, place eggs, yolks, sugar, lemon juice, zest, and salt over simmering water. Whisk well. Add butter in pieces and stir over medium heat, being careful not to boil, until it is thickened or coats the back of a spoon. Cool.

For the coulis:

In a medium saucepan simmer berries, water and sugar for 10 minutes. Press through a fine mesh strainer and puree in a blender or food processor. Set aside some coulis for whipped cream, some for berries, and some for plating.

To serve:

Fill tart shells nearly full with chilled lemon curd and place on an oval plate. Toss fresh berries in coulis and place on tart and directly on the plate. Place coulis artfully next to tart and berries. Whip the cream, adding sugar and coulis to it, then place a dollop on each tart top. Bon Appetit!
