Ingredients

  • 1 homemade or store-bought pie crust (not in pan)
  • Pastry cream:
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups milk

Follow package instructions to fit crust into a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom, and bake until light golden.

Make pastry cream: Mix flour, cornstarch and sugar in a bowl. Add 1/3 cup milk; beat until smooth. Whisk in yolks. In a pan, bring remaining milk to a simmer. Whisking constantly, pour hot milk into yolk mixture. Pour back into pan and bring to a boil, stirring. Boil for 2 minutes, whisking. Remove from heat; beat in butter and vanilla. Pour into a bowl; press plastic wrap directly onto surface of pastry cream. Chill 1 hour.

Arrange raspberries in center, forming a star. Fill in remaining surface with blueberries. Brush tart with remaining glaze.
