Strawberry Custard Tart - Au Naturale!
If you want to say "I love you" in an extra special way, this rich Strawberry Custard Tart will most definitely get the point across. Plus, you'll likely get a big smooch in return!
What can I say? I'm in love! I'm still madly, deeply in love with my husband of 20+ years. He's everything I want and need; a wonderful loving spouse, an outstanding father to our two children, an excellent provider, someone who I laugh with constantly, a man who makes me feel safe, cared for, and most especially, he is supportive, encouraging, and accepts me just the way I am. Life's never perfect, but his love is perfect for me and I feel adored. I think that we're a wonderful example of the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony, and I'm very proud of that. We are very blessed.
So, I presented this masterpiece of a dessert to my hunky hubby as a lovely piece of culinary art. That being said, I didn't exactly tell him how incredibly easy this recipe is. What he doesn't know won't hurt him. ;-)
The tart is also made with nutritious whole-food ingredients. It's dairy-free, gluten free, and ultra delicious! I call the filling a custard because it's definitely firmer than a pudding, but not as stiff as a cheesecake. The pecans in the crust make it extra flavorful and rich.
Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips are dairy-free, soy-free, and nut-free. They're what I use in all of my chocolate recipes. They're awesome!
The nice thing was, while I made this tart as a gift for my husband, I got to eat it, too. A win-win! ;-)
I think sliced strawberries would also make a lovely topping. Experiment and be creative with it. I'd love to hear how you decorate your tart! (That sounds kinda dirty... it isn't.) Tee, hee! ;-)

Hi there.this recipe looks awesome. Can another flavourful be substituted for the strawberry? How much would it change the recipe for the filling? ie; lemon or banana? Have you ever attempted other flavors? Thx in advance for your help.

Hi Julie, Great questions!
I've never attempted any other flavors, but that gives me something to creatively experiment with next. Other berries should work.
Lemon sounds awesome; I think I'd add in some coconut flour for extra thickening.
I'm allergic to bananas, so I'll leave that one up to you. It's a fantastic idea & I'll bet it will turn out great.
Let me know if you have success. Thanks for reading!
