Crème brulée tart … a classic French dessert, but revisited, with a tart look.
I’ve always loved crème brulée for the creaminess of the vanilla custard and the crunchiness of the caramelized brown sugar.
Tarts are my passion so why not combine these 2 recipes?
This is how Crostata Crème brulée was born … … a simple but delicious dessert.
I always remember not to put the caramel in the fridge … … the humidity would melt it … ..
Therefore, it is a dessert to prepare and finish.
But I’m sure there won’t be even 1 crumb left!
