Tart filling recipes can be made from custard, sugar syrups, jam, or ganache. Tarts are a sweet dessert than be made with fruit, berry, chocolate or nut fillings.
Lemon Tart Filling
Lemon tarts are filled with lemon cream custard. Lemon cream has a thicker custard consistency, and is much more creamy and smooth than lemon curd.
Lemon cream is made by making a custard thickened with eggs over a double boiler.
At the end of the lemon custard it is thinned out by adding cubed butter to make it buttery and creamy.
Lemon tarts can be topped with drizzled white chocolate ganache to give the tarts a sweeter finish.
Butter Tart Filling
Butter tart filling is made by combining butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and an egg over medium head to create a sauce. Butter tarts get their syrupy makeup from adding corn syrup to thicken the sauce.
Raspberry Ganache Tart Filling
Raspberry ganache tart filling is made by pureeing raspberries and removing the seeds by a strainer.
Once the raspberries are pureed and deseeded, it is warmed up in a saucepan with heavy cream.
Just before the cream starts to boil, the raspberry cream mixture is poured over chopped up white chocolate.
The raspberry ganache is mixed until it becomes smooth and glossy.
The tart filling is added to the tart shells after they have been baked, and need to chill for a few hours before serving.
Blueberry Ganache Tart Filling

The blueberry juice and heavy cream mixture is poured over a bowl of chopped up white chocolate to create the blueberry ganache tart filling.
