A raspberry tart recipe that is so easy to make at home. Step by step instructions that will make your baking successful and another French recipe to love.


Crème Patissière
  • 2 egg yolks
  • (2 oz/50 g) 1/3 cup castor sugar (You can use granulated sugar that you have placed in the blender and buzzed a couple of times to make it finer but not a powder. Leave blender lid on until the sugar dust settles.)
  • (1 oz/28 g)2 tbsp plain four
  • (½  pint) 1 cup milk
  • A few drops of vanilla essence (optional)
The Glaze
  • 2 tablespoons raspberry preserve
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp Kirsch or cognac (optional)
  • Method
  • Mix the raspberry preserve with the water and Kirsch
  • Heat until just melted.
  • Set aside to allow the glaze to cool.


Crème Patissière
  1. Make this first as it needs to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar using a wire balloon whisk until they are pale and thick.
  3. Gradually beat in the flour with just one tablespoon of the milk.
  4. Place the rest of the milk in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil.
  5. Whisk this into the egg mixture in a slow stream, ensuring that you whisk continuously so that it does not go lumpy (by using a balloon whisk you should have no problems with this).
  6. Return the mixture to the saucepan and place back on the heat. Continue to whisk until boiling (just a few seconds ) then remove from heat and continue whisking and cooking for 2-3 minutes. By removing from the heat it prevents any burning!
  7. Allow to cool.
  8. (Make-ahead and pour into a dish and keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to fill your pastry shells.)
Putting The Raspberry Tart Together
  1. Make the Crème Patissière and the glaze first as they both need to cool.
  2. Next prepare your pie shells if you are not using ready-made frozen shells from the grocery store. Remember the pasty shells whether homemade or store-bought must be cooked before the tart is assembled.
  3. Fill the pastry shells with the Crème Patissière.
  4. Arrange the raspberries on the top of the crème filling.
  5. Brush the raspberry glaze over the raspberries and pastry edges. 
  6. Admire!
  7. Another delicious French pastry for you to enjoy!
