Plum and Amaretto Rose, Custard Tart

Plum and Amaretto Rose Tart

This is a plum and amaretto rose tart, flavoured with almond extract and amaretto. Before anyone loses their minds, yes I did buy pre made tart shells. I make tart shells all the time to a point that if I'm being honestly, has really put me off wanting to make them. Also, making tart shells is really quite a basic skill and I wanted to get to the more interesting portion of the recipe. I think this makes a really lovely and unexpected Valentine's day dessert.
