Transcript:Fruit Tart RecipeHi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make a fruit tart using a homemade filling and fresh mixed berries.
Fruit Tart IngredientsFor this recipe you will need:
- 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
Make the Fruit Tart FillingNow, I'm going 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.
Bake the Fruit TartOnce 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.
Prepare the Fruit ToppingWhile the pan is cooking, prepare your fruit. You can use all of your favorite berries.
I'm going to use strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. I'm also going to cut the strawberries into 1/4-inch slices to lay out on my tart.
Make a Glaze for the Fruit TartAlso, we are going to cook the apricot preserves to make a glaze for the tart. 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. We'll brush this over the berries at the end.
Place Fruit on Top of the TartWhen 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's slightly cool, arrange the berries on top of the tart. I'm going to put out the strawberry slices around the edge, then have a row of blueberries, and put the raspberries and blackberries in the middle.
Serve the Fruit TartNow, brush the berries with the glaze for a nice, shiny finish. Serve with whipped cream for a tasty treat. Enjoy!
