"This classic French Tarte aux Fraises combines crisp, buttery sable pastry, smooth and creamy crème pâtissière and the freshest strawberries you can find. The result is an exquisite fruit pastry that's bursting with flavour and it's exactly what you'll find in the counters of your local Parisian pastry shop. This Strawberry Tart is sensational! The pastry base is made using a pâte sablée which adds more richness and flavour to the foundation of the tart. This style of pastry is preferable when making tarts filled with a custard cream filling as a sweet shortcrust pastry (pâte sucrée), or all butter pastry can soften too quickly. The filling is a traditional French vanilla custard, crème pâtissière, that's topped with sweet, juicy strawberries as the showpiece. In true French style, the fruit is brushed in an apricot glaze for even more flavour and shine."
