No-Bake Summer Berry Tart

I find that the more free time I have, the less I update.  This is more of a procrastination for me.  Right now my life consists of a series of "small" meals and naps.  That's it.  If you know me you'll know that this is hell for me.  Sleeping and eating -- it's meaningless.  Give me an essay, a project, a deadline, and see how stressed and happy I am as I update Happy Belly on a daily basis.

I suddenly felt like updating because of this overwhelming feeling of guilt that has been building up in me -- it's been almost a week! it's never been that long!  I was reading my two best friends' blog, and I thought ok, I need to do something.  My best friends are currently doing a road trip around the US, go to the link for some humorous accounts and there's a food section in every post :D

Other than having nothing to do, I'm also not cooking that much because a)I'm in Italy and I'm basically living off deli foods [200g parma prosciutto 3 euros, yup] and b) I'm in a 50-year-old house with a 50-year-old kitchen and nothing really works, especially the oven.
So here's a no-bake berry tart.  Perfect for the summer. Enjoy.  

1 portion of basic creme patisserie
1 1/2 cup mixed berries
1 cup ginger biscuits
6 tbsp melted butter

Put the biscuits in a food processor and whizz until it becomes crumbs.  Mix thoroughly with butter and press firmly into a pie plate.  Put it in the freezer for at least an hour.  When firm, spread the creme patisserie in the crust and top with mixed berries.
