Easy fruit tart!
This morning I had a spare half hour inbetween Millie's Baby group and picking Chester up from Nursery School so I popped into the near by Co-op just to have a browse. I came out with Ready Roll shortcrust pastry, a punnet of raspberries and a punnet of blueberries. All for under £3!! All were reduced because they were going out of the best before date today but all looked in perfect condition and for under £3 who could resist?!
On the way home I decided that I would make an easy fruit tart with the kiddies, and here is what we did;
I unrolled the pastry and put into a baking tray, folding up the edges slightly. I then chopped an apple I had spare. Then it was time for Chester (Millie had gone for nap by then!) to put the raspberries, blueberries and apple on top of the pastry.
He then very generously sprinkled (that should probably read chucked) some caster sugar over the top.
I finished it off by brushing milk all around the edges of the pastry and sprinkling a final bit of sugar around them. Popped it into the oven for 25 Minutes on 180 degrees and that was it, as easy as that!
Its a great easy healthy thing to make with the kids, you could even cut the pastry into smaller squares to do individual tarts. We have just had our lunch and had some of the fruit tart warm, it was delicious both children loved it as did I. Chester had loads of fun making it so I am definitely going to make it with them again.
