Trim the edges and rest for another 15-30 minutes in the fridge.

1 egg yolk
200g granulated sugar

Cut pineapple into roughly 0,5×0,5cm cubes. Place in a single layer on the bottom of the tart shells, gently pour over the custard and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until the custard is just set, but there’s a soft wobble in the center. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve at room temperature.
