breezy berry tart

I’ve had this magazine snippet since … way too long ago… Just a little cut out from a Woolworths magazine… I liked the idea or making such a simple yet elegant dessert so quickly.. πŸ™‚ I did a small variation to the original, but I’ll post the original recipe below…

 

Before I delve into that, however, I’ll just make a little announcement… Over from Steph’s blog, I’ve been rewarded a Versatile blogger’s award, which I previously received from Rufus’, and just recently, also from Charles over at Five Euro Food.

I had my turn at doing the rules, back in the day. As for to-day, I’ll announce the Liebster Award that Steph has passed on. Yes, the badge looks like this:

If it was up to me, I’d put a line through Liebster, & scribble “fati’s” instead! πŸ˜›

To pass this award on, I must only nominate bloggers with fewer than 200 followers, but whom I feel deserve that big 2-0-0…

I’m not going overlap choosing the people chosen by Steph, although I think they very much deserve it, too! πŸ™‚

Rufus Guide blog – my earliest follower, who just recently posted an AMAZING crust recipe! YUM!

The Food Doc blog – she’s an amazing cook, artist, mum, and gee, could you guess? Doctor!

Samah’s Good Cooks blog – makes those monthly daring challenges look like a breeze!

Tales of Ambrosiana blogΒ – wonderful tales; tasty cooking; awesome photography!

Chica Andaluza blog – sewer, chef, great friend, she’s got it all between her hands!

Congrats, you all deserve it! πŸ˜€

As for this berry tart recipe, here it is as follows…

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed

400g frozen mixed berries

1 1/2 tbs caster or brown sugar (which ever is closer to hand)

1 tbs milk

Β 

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius.

Line a tray with baking paper, or lightly grease it.

Cut the pastry sheet into quarters and place them on the tray.

In a saucepan, over medium-low heat, cook the berries with the sugar for 2 or so minutes.

Strain through a sieve and reserve the liquid (I forgot this part! Oops).

Divide the mixture evenly between the pastry squares, then roll the edges of the pastry to form a round shape.

Brush the pastry edges with milk and scatter with a little bit of extra sugar (I didn’t do this because I put in 3 tbs of brown sugar instead of 1 and a half).

Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges of the pastry are golden brown.

Serve with vanilla yoghurt or ice cream.

Devour!

    Congrats Fati on your well deserved awards and thank you too for the lovely nomination! Most kind indeed πŸ™‚ I love this recipe and like to serve pies like this – perfect portions and all the ice cream can melt into the middle. Yum!!

    Congratulations on the award. Charles at Five Euro Foods nominated me this past week, I have yet to post about it. Such an honour! I love puff pastry and fruit, wonderful! I can see this being a very tasty breakfast too (maybe minus the ice cream, that might just be a bit too much!)

    Congratulations Fati! You know, I really don’t use pastry much in my cooking. I think I got put off because no matter what type I buy from the store (talking mainly about puff here) it always stays flat and never puffs up 😦 I guess I should try making it myself, and then I could have delicious berry pies, like yours! πŸ™‚

    Aww, thanks everyone! It’s always nice to know there are such wonderful people out there… πŸ™‚
    Oh, Charles, I couldn’t possibly know why the store’s puff pastry wouldn’t puff… I’ve heard and seen that making your own isn’t “hard” but it’s not very easy, either… Being a guy, I think it’d be easier for you to handle all the rolling and flipping and re-rolling… I couldn’t do it, I don’t have the biceps for it! πŸ˜›

      Oohh, how did it turn out? I hope it was as delicious as the one I made… my little sis who helped me make it still recalls it and occasionally bugs me to make it again.
      I know there was a request for a mexican dish with chicken or meat in it, but since starting uni, I haven’t had a chance to cook the things I love, let alone things I’m not entirely familiar with. Will get there one day. Just wait. πŸ™‚

So, what do you think?
