Today I am compelled to collide spicy with sweet in this luscious Ginger Cream Tart with Mixed Berries. This dessert is lively but light and truly shows off the best of summers berries.
What makes this dessert interesting is the gingersnap crust and crystallized ginger in the cream filling. Don’t be alarmed! There is not an overabundance of ginger here, just enough to get your attention. The cream and sugar meld with the ginger to tame it and create something pleasantly unique and delicious.
Crystallized ginger is simply ginger that has been slowly cooked in sugar water and often rolled in sugar. It can easily be made at home, but for this recipe I used store bought ginger.
If you’re looking for a lovely summer dessert to show off to all your family and friends, this one should be high on your list. Not only is it easy, the filling is pillowy and light, it showcases fresh summer berries and it’s presentation is beautiful. Oh, and of course it’s delicious!
