Tart with red fruits, pistachio and Breton shortbread

An appointment with gluttony. That’s my promise to you with this pie. I would also have liked to promise you a date with the sun. Sorry, I only have rain for you.

But, let’s leave the time aside, and let’s get back to the gluttony. At least we can console ourselves with this pretty pie. It’s really simple and quick to do. It is undoubtedly within everyone’s reach. It consists of a Breton shortbread. It’s a great base for making a pie. It brings the crunch and it is much easier to make than a dough that you have to spread out and then bake blind. Above, I still wanted to stay easy with a whipped cream that I flavored with pistachio. And then, I chose to put strawberries and blueberries. A few pistachio chips finish the decoration.

So! A delight, all in simplicity.

To finish: you can find pistachio paste in organic stores, sometimes in the organic section of supermarkets. There’s nothing but pistachio in this one. Avoid those of the pastry departments which contain everything and anything.
You can adjust the dosage to your liking.
