I love fruit, any kinds of fruit..local or imported fruits. Durian season together with rambutan, mangosteen, langsat, cempedak was my favourite time. It brings a lot of fond memories. I remember waiting for the durian to fall from the tree..bagai menunggu bulan jatuh ke riba (like waiting for the moon to fall on my lap).. Me and my sister did all sort of activities like singing dancing playing batu seremban, tutup botol (bottle cap) .. though we have to watch out for the strayed wild boar.. Lucky not one passed by.. After few hours of waiting we heard a not so loud "Bhupp" the sound of something falling to the ground. We rushed to the place where we thought the sound comes from and WAH! There we found a small durian covered with dried leaves and what a joy it brings to us..  hmm...hope my children have the chance to experience this pure excitement..

Ha! speaking about fruits, I've made an easy fruit tart for my sister's engagement day. Very simple yet so fresh and yummy..the base is a round shortbread, layered with a fresh mascarpone cheese and heavy cream. The choice of fruits depends on our palate..some like sweet fruits, some like it to be slightly sour.. You may want to try make one for you...Here is the recipes:-

Shortbread Crust:
1 cup (130 grams) all purpose flour (tepung gandum biasa je)
1/3 cup (35 grams) confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (113 grams)coldunsalted butter, cut into pieces
-just mix them together until it forms a clump, then press on your greased tart pan. can use big one or the mini one..
-then pierce the bottom with fork, covered it and place in the freezer for 15 min.
-then bake for 13-15 mins until golden brown. 

Cream Filling:
1/2 cup (120 ml) mascarpone or cream cheese
1/2 cup (120 ml) cold heavy whipping crea(35-40% butterfat content)
2 tbsp (30 grams) granulated white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
(One day I wanna add in durian flesh esp for my hubby..hihi)

Spread the cream filling and fill with any fruits you want like mango, kiwi, berries, peaches, mangosteen... yummynyaa.....

This is my first fruit tart

Believe it or not, there were more hands than the number of strawberries..hehe
