Recipe: Mixed Fruit and Berry Tart ...

I love this time of year for baking when everything seems to take on a more rustic element! I'm thinking homemade tarts, bowls of steaming soup served with hunks of freshly cut baguette! Today I'm posting an easy pie recipe I made to use up some fruit and berries I had sitting around.


1 and 1/2 sheets puff pastry
4 eating apples/mixed berries
2oz of brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
grated rind and juice of lemon
1 oz butter
3 tbs honey


Lightly grease an oblong tart tin. Roll out the sheets of pastry and line tin. It dosen't have to be perfect as I think this adds to the rustic element! 

In a bowl slice the apples and combine with the sugar and cinnamon. Add the mixed berries,I used sliced strawberries and blueberries, lemon rind and juice and stir it all together.

Fill the pastry case with the fruit mixture and cook in a hot 180 oven for 40 mins until the apples are soft.

Heat the honey for a minute and glaze the fruit with it before cutting into slices..

Serve with a good dollop of cream or vanilla ice cream.

Now for all the busy mums out there who never have time to bake homemade tarts or pies , I think you should always have this chilled puff pastry and an oblong tart tin on standby!

 Trust me you will never be stuck for baking a special treat or savoury dinner option again! They really are the easiest recipes of all to try. Go here for a previous savoury tart I made using the same pastry and tin.

Have a good day!
