4 apples, peeled and cut into thick slices

½ cup unsweetened apple juice

2 cups blackberries

1 cup water

2 Tbsp blackberry preserves

1 cup sugar

4 tsp arrowroot starch

2 ¼ cups flour

1 ½ tsp baking powder

10 Tbsp butter, room temperature

1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar

1 egg

½ tsp vanilla

1 cup walnut halves

Whipped cream, optional

 

Combine apples and juice in a large saucepan over medium heat.  Cover and simmer 6-10 minutes or until apples are tender. Drain, reserving juice and apples.  Measure 2 cups apple slices and set aside.  Additional juice and apples can be used for another purpose.  Combine berries, water, and preserves in medium saucepan. Combine sugar and arrowroot powder in a small bowl and then stir into berry mixture.  Cook over medium heat and simmer until thickened (6-10 minutes).  Set aside and let cool to room temperature. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift together flour and baking powder in a small bowl.  In a large bowl, cream butter and confectioners’ sugar until fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla.  Stir in sifted dry ingredients to form a soft dough.  Divide dough into two parts, with one part being slightly larger than the other.  On a board on top of wax paper, roll the larger piece of dough out into a 12-inch circle.  Put pastry into a 9-inch pie pan. Add reserved apples.  Top with walnut halves.  Pour berry mixture over walnuts. Roll remaining dough out to a 9-inch circle.  Place over filling and press top and bottom pastry edges together to seal.  Prick top over with fork.  Put pie pan on top of baking sheet in case of spillover.  Bake for 50-60 minutes or until pastry in golden and filling is bubbly.  Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired.

Fruit Tart Recipe

Fruit Tart Recipe.pdf
Adobe Acrobat document [7.0 KB]

Refrigerated pie or tart crust
3 1/4 cups mixed berries
3 tablespoons apricot preserves
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
2 tablespoons dark rum

 

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place your baking sheet in there too, so it can be preheated as well. Now, to make the filling, place the butter and the sugar into a stand mixer. Using the beater attachment, cream them together. Once combined, crack and add the eggs. Mix them together. Then add the almond extract and the rum. Once everything is mixed in, the filling is ready. You can refrigerate the filling up for 4 days, or you can use it right away. Next, take your pasty dough and lay it in a 9-inch tart pan. Then, fill the dough with the almond cream filling. Take out your preheated baking sheet, and place the tart pan in the center. Bake the tart 15-20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
 

While the pan is cooking, prepare your fruit. You can use all of your favorite berries, especially
strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Cut the strawberries into 1/4-inch slices to lay out on each tart.

 

Make a glaze for the fruit tart by cooking the apricot preserves. Put the preserves and 1 teaspoon of water into a saucepan. Cook on medium heat until it looks like it has melted. Then, strain the preserves to remove the lumps. This will be brushed over the berries at the end.
 

When the tart is ready, remove the pan from the oven, and place the tart on a wire rack to cool for 5-10 minutes. Once it is slightly cool, arrange the berries on top of the tart. Put the strawberry slices around the edge, then have a row of blueberries, and put the raspberries and blackberries in the middle. Brush the berries with the glaze for a nice, shiny finish. Serve with whipped cream for a tasty treat.
