Summer Fruit Tart

I told you yesterday what we were doing this weekend and this is the recipe for one of the desserts. It will make your mouth water just reading this.

This will make 8 servings or, 4 really large ones…..again, your choice!


  • half of a 450g pkg of puff pastry
  • 1/3 cup peach jam (from our peach tree)
  • 1 red skinned pear, sliced thin
  • 2 peaches, skin removed, sliced in thin wedges
  • 2 purple plums, sliced in thin wedges
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 egg

On a parchment lined baking sheet, roll out the pastry to a 10 inch square.

Leave 1 inch around th edge and spread the peach jam , except 1 tbsp, over the pastry. Now arrange the fruit all over the jam surface.

Mix the remaining  jam with a 2 tsp of water and smooth over the fruit to make a glaze.

Beat the egg with 1 tsp. of water and brush over the surface edge of the pastry. Now, try to fold the border up to form a lip and brush the surface with the egg wash.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes. Pastry should be crisp and golden.  Let cool down and serve with, what else, whipped cream.

Oh, damn, I did it again!
