A special dessert
I stretched my personal baking limits to produce this French fruit tart. The recipe was from The Joy of Cooking 1997 version (French fruit pastry cream tart page 880, shortbread crust page 868, pastry cream page 997). The peaches came from our local farmers' market, the blueberries were a gift from a neighbor who went to eastern Washington, and the raspberries grew in our backyard. It made a spectacular birthday treat for our friend N!
