Caramel tart

Method

For the tart crust

  • Preheat the oven to 160ο C (320ο F) set to fan.
  • In a bowl add the flour, the salt, the icing sugar, and the ice-cold butter cut into pieces. 
  • Knead with your hands and rub the ingredients together until the mixture has the texture of wet sand.
  • Add the egg yolk, the water, and knead well until your mixture turns into a soft dough.
  • Spread it in a 25 cm springform pan and make sure to crimp it all around, 2-3 cm high, so that it can hold the filling inside.
  • Prick the whole surface of the dough with a fork, spread a piece of plastic wrap, and add pie weights.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove the pie weights and bake for another 10-15 minutes.

For the caramel cream

  • Increase the oven’s temperature to 170ο C (340ο F) set to fan.
  • In a bowl add the flour, the corn starch, 100 g of the milk, and whisk well until the ingredients are homogenized. Set aside.
  • In a pot add the rest of the milk, the heavy cream, the vanilla extract, salt, and transfer over low heat until the mixture is hot.
  • Place another pot over medium-low heat. Spread 1/5 of the sugar inside and let it start melting. Then, add another batch of the sugar and let it start melting. Follow the same process three more times. As soon as the mixture starts turning lightly golden, like caramel, stir softly with a silicone spatula. Be careful because the mixture will be very hot! 
  • Once your mixture turns into caramel, carefully add the hot milk mixture and stir over low heat, for 3-4 minutes, until the caramel completely melts and the ingredients are homogenized.
  • Add the corn starch mixture and stir for 1-2 minutes until the mixture thickens.
  • Remove from the heat and stir well to dissolve any lumps the cream might have.
  • Carefully transfer the cream to the crust and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Let it cool and serve with caramel sauce, icing sugar, and mint.
