I adjusted this custard tart recipe I found after tasting a similar tart on vacation. The crust makes a good base for, say...lemon bars, etc. The custard was surprisingly simple! then I topped with sliced fruit!

Crust:

1 egg-beaten

1 C almond flour

1 t cinnamon

1 T Swerve (3T Spenda)

Mix with a fork. Stir in :

c butter-melted

Press into pan. Use wax paper and spoon to spread evenly.

350 20 minutes

For the Custard:

6 eggs

6 ounces sugar-(3/4 C Splenda)-(6 T Stevia)

1 orange, zested

1 t vanilla

1 pint double cream or half/half



The Custard:

Break the eggs into a mixing bowl with the sugar and orange zest and whisk thoroughly.

Pour the cream into a saucepan and remove from the heat just before it boils. Pour the hot cream into the bowl of eggs, stirring all the time.

Then transfer this mixture back to the saucepan, on medium heat and stir continuously until it has thickened.

Pour the custard into the pastry cases and let sit to cool.
