Dacquoise tart with red fruits

Dacquoise tart with red fruits
Preparing a gourmet dessert to enjoy under the plaid in front of a series was not really the first idea I had of this weekend of the ascent. A ray of sunshine that lasts more than 10 minutes would still have been welcome.
This pie nevertheless managed to cheer me up a bit. I highly recommend it, since the next few days do not look better.
It consists of a dacquoise, a diplomat cream with tonka bean and strawberries and raspberries. It is obvious that it is delicious. And really very easy to do. Besides, I absolutely wanted to make a very quick dessert.
I really like diplomat cream. It consists of a pastry cream to which whipped cream is added. It is excellent in many preparations. It is best to prepare the pastry cream the day before.
The same day, we prepare the dacquoise, and we proceed to the assembly. It’s that simple.
