Question Custard used in a fruit tart?

Does anybody have home made recipe for it? Preferably with out dairy, but that is not the bigest consern. It could be substituted (maybe).

maybe use silken tofu instead? I think creme anglaise is the typical custard used for tarts, but it involves dairy. I can post the recipe if you want.

Most recipes that I've seen use a pastry cream (these involve tarts that have the shells already cooked, and the cream is added later). A creme anglaise is more of a sauce. For tarts that call for the custard to be cooked, then you can probably use the recipe from a basic custard pie. I don't know of any non-dairy recipes but there are probably a few floating on the net somewhere.

yeah, you're right, ironchef. I was looking quickly in my Jacques Torres book and overlooked the pastry cream recipe.

It's basic pastry cream which is really easy to make, but would be a challenge to make it without dairy. It certainly wouldn't taste the same.

I know you said home-made, but you may have to use a vegan custard power and soy milk.
It's in a book somewhere, but the person wants you to buy the book and on VegWeb it just tells you what page it is on.

I've found it almost as tasty (and quite a bit easier!) to use Instant vanilla flavoured pudding (the jello brand)

Thanks. I, guess, I'm going to have to ry it. Though I do not like soy or rice milk. My kids do.
