Individual custard tarts served with fresh fruit are the essence of simplicity after a rich meal. Light and delicate yet flavorful these tarts make a lovely presentation dressed with fresh mint leaves.

Ingredients

  • 6 prepared single-serving graham cracker crusts
  • 1 pkg. (3 oz.) vanilla pudding and pie filling mix (not instant)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 pkg. sliced fresh fruit (optional)
  • Mint leaves (optional)

Directions

COMBINE pudding mix and water in small saucepan. Add evaporated milk and lemon peel; stir until smooth. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and thickens.

POUR into crusts; refrigerate for 1 hour or until set. Top with fruit and mint leaves before serving.

VARIATION: For a Key Lime twist to this recipe, substitute 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice and 1 teaspoon grated lime peel for the grated lemon peel. Top with lime slice.
