Mini Fruit Tarts

















I bought 10 kiwi in the fridge. My children don't like kiwi as they found this green and hairy little one very sour. I myself can't finish all the kiwi before it's too ripe, so i was thinking to make some fruit tarts. And, something delights me...... there is another fruit laying inside the tupperware in the fridge too, they're grapes! Oh, i think these green and red are the best couple to decorate my fruit tarts!

It took me 2 hours for the whole process. The custard cream is very creamy and not too sweet, together with the sourness of kiwi and sweetness of grapes.... what a refreshing mini fruit tarsts....
