Don’t let this post fool you in thinking that I’m a master baker. In fact, I’m not one by any stretch of the imagination. I made these fruit tarts because I was pinning all these yummy tarts onto my Pinterest board, Desserts, and thought that I can conquer the baking world (well, not exactly…). The amazing thing about Pinterest is that it made me believe.
Another disclosure? This is my FIRST time making these tarts. I was thinking, if it turns out great, I’ll share. If not, oh well! It turned out pretty OK. Not perfect. Practice makes perfect right? However, there are a few things that I would do differently the second time around which I’ll share.
So ladies and gents, please enjoy my first ever Fruit Tarts (under 30 minutes!)…
Ingredients: Puff Pastry (I only used one sheet), loads of fruit variety, fig jam (may substitute with your favorite jam), egg (for the egg wash), mint leaves and powder sugar for garnish (to make it look fancy!).
I bought this baking pan about two years ago and never used it once. I like that it has a divider which in this case was perfect. I was able to make two varieties. One side with fruits and the other with just berries. See hunnie! My hoarding tendencies don’t go to waste!
First side consists of apricots, kiwi, and mango slices.
Second side consists of strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries.
So if I can do this, you definitely can! Some stuff that I’ve learned this time: trim the edges a little neater (this will probably make it look rounder) and don’t add so much fruits because the juices make the bottom a tad bit soggy.
So there you have it! Enjoy with ice cream, whipped cream, or tea.
Go get your baking game on. Happy Tuesday!
