Fruit Tarts

I made this fruit tarts last weekend. The recipe was taken from my first recipe book that I bought few weeks back (finally had the opportunity to try it).

I couldn’t find one of the ingredients in the supermarket which is fromage frais. I searched in the internet about fromage frais. And here is what I found Fromage frais is a fresh, soft curd cheese that is low in fat. Fresh cheeses are not cured which means they do not keep for long. It has a slightly tangy taste.

Luckily you can replace it with strawberry Fruche. I managed to get strawberry Fruche in the supermarket. Although I am not sure what is the difference between them but my tarts came out delicious! It tastes fabulous especially when eaten cold. Must give it a try… (“,)
