Whisk together in a bowl or process for 10 seconds in a food processor: flour; sugar; and salt. Add the butter and mash with the back of a fork or process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the egg yolk. Mix with a spatula or process just until the dough comes together. Pat the dough evenly over the bottom and sides of the prepared pan. Prick the bottom and sides with a fork. Bake until golden brown about 18 minutes.
  2. PASTRY CREAM: Heat1 cup milk until small bubbles appear around the edges. Meanwhile in a heavy 2 quart saucepan stir sugar, cornstarch, gelatin, salt and remaining 1/2 cup cold milk until smooth. Gradually stir in hot milk. Stir over medium heat about 8 minutes until gelatin is dissolved, smooth, and coats metal spoon. Remove from heat; stir 1/2 cup into egg yolks, return to remaining mixture in saucepan. Stir constantly over low heat about 2 minutes just until slightly thickened. Remove from heat stir in vanilla. Chill about 30-60 minutes, stirring occasionally until mixture mounds. Fold whipped cream into custard until smooth. Pour into tart shell. Chill 45 minutes and fruit.
