Perfect for the dead of winter, when all you want is a nice piece of fruit.  Not too complicated, either!

Step 1: Gather your Ingredients:

Picture of Gather your Ingredients:
Here's EVERYTHING you'll need: 

PASTRY SHELL
1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/8 t salt
1/2 c unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 c granulated sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten

CUSTARD
2 c milk
1/4 c granulated sugar
1/4 t salt
1 c pineapple juice
1 T cornstarch
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten

Aaand a sizeable amount of fruit: I used one can of pineapple and a pint of blueberries, with leftovers of each, and a little bit of coconut I had on hand.

Step 2: Make the Pastry:

Whisk together the flour and salt in a large bowl.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter until softened; add sugar, beat; gradually add egg.  Add your dry ingredients all at once and mix until a nice ball of dough forms.  Pour out onto a piece of clingfilm and shape into a disk; refrigerate for 15-30 minutes until the dough firms up a bit.  

Preheat your oven to 400°F.  Grease an 8-9 inch tart pan (with removable bottom!) and set on a cookie sheet.  Press chilled pastry onto the bottom and up the sides of the tart pan; refrigerate 15 more minutes.   

Remove pastry; prick the bottom of the crust with the end of a fork to keep it from puffing up.  (Alternately; line your pastry casing with parchment paper and fill with dried beans to reach the same effect.)

Bake for five minutes; reduce temperature to 350 and continue to bake for 15 minutes more.  

Let pastry cool completely before caaarefully removing from outer form.  

ON TO CUSTARD.
