(28cm) tart pan. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for
20 minutes, until lightly brown and set. Let cool completely.
2. Filling: In a small saucepan bring milk to simmering.
Meanwhile in a small bowl whisk together egg yolks, sugar
and cornstarch until pale and thickened. While whisking,
slowly add warm milk. Mix until well combined. Press through
a fine mesh sieve back into saucepan.
3. Over medium heat, cook custard until it begins to thicken.
Stir constantly. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Press
a piece of plastic wrap to top of custard to prevent skin
from forming. Let cool completely.
4. Spread cooled filling into cooled pastry crust. Decorate
top of filling with assorted fresh summer berries.
5. In a small container, mix jelly and water. Warm in
microwave. Brush over fresh fruit. Let cool at least 30
minutes in refrigerator.
