I have previously shared Easy Vegetable Tarts for using up the summer glut of vegetables. This Easy Fruit Tart recipe is a tasty and stylish way to make a dessert with whatever seasonal fruit you have. I used peaches but you could easily make it with nectarines, plums or any berry fruit.
2 sheets puff pastry
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp almond flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Peaches, about 4
1 tbsp flour for dusting the working surface
1 small beaten egg
Thaw the frozen puff pastry for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 180C.
Peel the peaches and cut them into thin slices about 1/4 inch thick. Place them in a bowl and sprinkle with sugar, almond flour and ground cinnamon. Gently toss them with your hands and try to coat all peaches with the mixture.
On a large sheet of baking paper, sprinkle 1 tbsp of flour and place two sheets of puff pastry on each other, so the corners create the shape of a star.
Start placing peach slices about 1 inch from edge, overlapping each slice slightly, continue until you reach the centre of the pastry.
Fold the outer edges of the pastry over the peaches. The shape doesn’t need to be perfect. Brush the pastry edges with the beaten egg then lightly sprinkle the edges with sugar.
Bake in preheated oven 180 C for 35–40 minutes or until the crust is golden. Let the tart cool on the baking sheet.
