No-Bake Fruit Tarts

This recipe for no-bake fruit tarts is fast, fabulous, and bursting with fresh-fruit flavor. The filling is light and creamy pastry cream that is very refreshing when combined with any fruit of your choice. I personally like to top it with mangoes, as we have very sweet mangoes in Manila. The combination of mangoes and cream is just delicious.

Ingredients:

For the Cream Filling:

1 cup Angel Evaporated Filled Milk
3/4 cup water
2 whole eggs
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon zest

For the Crust:

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened


Fruit Toppings:

kiwi slices
halved strawberries or red grapes
sliced mangoes or peaches


Procedure:

1.) Combine Angel Evaporated Filled Milk, water, eggs, cornstarch, vanilla and sugar in a heavy bottom saucepan. Cook until thick while stirring continuously. Stir in lemon zest before removing from heat. Set aside to cool.
2.) Mix together graham crumbs, sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Divide into 6 individual tart molds. Press bottom and sides using a spoon. Allow it to chill in refrigerator.
3.) Pour cream filling into prepared crust. Top with fresh fruit slices. Chill completely before serving.


Makes 8-12 tarts
