We are swinging into spring and the best of summer fruits are making their debut!
Our fridge was full of strawberries. I think my brother happens to guzzle a punnet daily..So I nicked a punnet just for you, to prepare this beautiful warm strawberry tart.
I can’t resist the warm, flaky crunch of puff pastry!
Don’t be scared to cook your fruit. The depth of flavour and fragrance that a little bit of heat can bring out, is such a pleasant surprise! This summer, we are going to be cooking LOTS of fruit!
Ingredients: (serves 6-8)
30x20cm puff pastry sheet ( or similar, depending on the dish you are using for baking/serving)
1/4 cup chopped pistachios
1/4 cup flaked almonds
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp castor sugar
1 tbsp melted butter
Using a fork, prick the puff pastry in neat rows, at 2 inch intervals, and bake for 7-8 minutes.
Remove from the oven and arrange the strawberry slices neatly, OR just toss them on, it’ll look good either way;)
Drizzle the melted butter evenly. Sprinkle the nuts and cinnamon over the tart. Sprinkle Sprinkle Sprinkle.
Finish with a generous topping of castor sugar.Bake for 10 minutes.
Serve warm with a dollop of Mascarpone..Or with a scoop of ice cream, like I did!:)
