PIE CRUST:

USING A PROCESSOR:

  1. I am using 9 inch tart pan.
  2. Place the flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor, stand mixer, or in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Pulse twice and add in the butter. Pulse 6 times and add in the vanilla extract, whipping cream and the egg, process/mix/stir until the dough gathers itself into a ball and pulls away cleanly from the sides of the bowl. Transfer in a plastic.
  4. Wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap, and chill for 1 hour.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to a thickness of about 1/8-inch.
  6. Press the dough gently into the tart pan and using your finger, spread dough on the side of the pan. Use the plastic to smoothen the dough.

NO PROCESSOR:

  • Place butter in a bowl and mix until smooth.
  • Add the sugar and mix. Add the vanilla and add in the flour, egg, and small amount of heavy cream - start with 1/2 tablespoon.
  • Continue mixing until mixture come together.
  • Transfer dough in a plastic and form into a round circle.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour.

SWEET WHIPPED CREAM:

  • Place cream cheese in an electric mixer bowl.
  • Attach in wire whipped attachment.
  • Mix cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add in the vanilla and the powdered sugar¬† and whipped in high until no cram cheese lumps.
  • Add whipped cream by third and mix in each interval.
  • Mix until stiff peaks.
  • Put in the fridge until needed.

TO ASSEMBLE GRAPE TART:

  • Pre heat oven at 340 F
  • Pour almond cream in the pie crust and spread on the pan
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown on top.
  • Let cool and spread sweet whipped cream frosting using a spoon or a piping bag.
  • Top with washed and dried green grape and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • Refrigerate before serving.
