This custard is great to use on tarts. It usually goes over a baked tart shell, and is topped with fruit, whipped cream, meringue or any other topping. It can also be used as a filling for pastries, and flavoured with liqueurs, melted chocolate, vanilla, pulverized almonds, pralin, macarons or any other component to give it your special twist.
