Gluten free baking can be a bit of a tricky formula. Without wheat flour, dough can fall apart or dry out really easily. In gluten free baking, you cannot simply substitute wheat flour for non-wheat flours, and the measurements also vary significantly. Every recipe that we share has been (enthusiastically!) tested by us and approved for your celiac-friendly kitchens. Here is a decadent dessert that you won’t be able to resist – a gluten free vanilla custard tart! Along with the GF tartlet recipe, you’ll also find instructions to make gluten free creme patissiere to fill your tarts with.
Tart & Gluten Free Custard Recipes
Find the recipes for the GF pie dough and GF creme patissiere in the printable templates below. As we mentioned, baking without wheat flour can be a touchy thing, so follow the recipe as exactly as possible. We pulled the pie dough recipe from the Gluten Free America’s Test Kitchen Cookbook. Generally we would suggest making the edges of the tartlets a little higher than you would a normal tart crust so that they hold together more cohesively. Once the crusts and custard are made, spoon the pastry creme into the tart and top with berries of your choice. Dust them with powdered sugar and voila! A bite-sized, gluten free vanilla custard tart.
