Puff Pastry Fruit Tart

I saw some beautiful puff pastry fruit tarts at Four Leaves bakery few weeks ago and have been tempted to make it since. However, I don't usually buy much variety of fruits at a time so my fruit tarts usually ended up with single type of fruit. Needless to say, they looked rather boring and plain.

This time round, I ordered 2 boxes of fruits in variety from Lazyfruits, now I can finally start making my 'art piece'! You may click here to read my experience engaging their service. In short, Lazyfruits is an online fruit shopping and delivery, which make buying fruits a much simpler chores. Aside from saving time and strength, the convenience that it brings - next day delivery, option for cash-on-delivery as well as credit card payment, able to order the fruits anytime/anywhere, replacing of damaged fruits at no cost etc., are the aspects that appeal to me most. In fact, all my fruits including fragile fruits arrived in a condition exceeding my expectation. 

Now let's move on to the fruit tarts! I used frozen puff pastry with butter as the tart shell, top it with silky smooth homemade custard and then arrange the fruits on top. Crunchiness from the pastry, smoothness from the custard paired with those refreshing fruits... these fruit tarts are simply awesome, can't wait to make them again!
