Crisp pastry tarts recipes packed with fruit or a sweet
filling makes a delicious dessert for any occasion - whether you want a
special recipe for dinner party or something more substantial to follow
a mid-week main course. In the summer, enclose seasonal fruits in a
crumbly double crust, or show off the fruits vibrant colors by topping
the tart with a pretty lattice or a scattering of pastry shapes. For a
special occasion, fresh cherries are delicious cooked under crunchy
shortbread, while Lemon and Orange Tart is an elegant dessert made with
winter citrus fruits.
Redcurrant jelly is a very handy ingredient to
have in your store cupboard. It can be use to flavor sweet and savory dishes and
is delicious when melted and used to glaze fruit tarts. It also adds that
special piquancy to the classic Cumberland Sauce.
