Summer tart recipe with pear, summer berries and apricots.



On the day that Mark and I went to Stow, we also went to a cookery demonstration at Waitrose and were shown a variety of recipes that were both quick and delicious to make. My favourite was the pudding course (obviously) and this is a slightly adapted version of the summer tart recipe. It is easily adapted to whichever fruit you have available and very simple to make. For example, because we had a glut of apricots from our garden we had to use those up!


First of all, take a sheet of puff pastry and unroll onto a greased tray.


Brush over with melted butter, to give you a lovely golden finish when cooked.


Add the fruit to the puff pastry base, either in regular rows....


... or all higgeldy-piggeldy!


If you have a fussy eater for a father (like me!) ensure that you separate the different types of fruit...


Sprinkle with sugar to taste and then bake at 190°C/ 375°F/ Gas Mark 5 until golden brown.


Serve with lashings of cream and enjoy!


What would you put on a summer tart? Are you a desserts person?
P.S. I am on holiday at the moment with no internet so I won't be able to comment on posts until I am home!

Mmm I love puff pastry! My mum makes a savoury version with tomato and cheese, but I hadn't thought of doing something sweet - must try it!
