The Summer Fruit Tart Caramelized for your friends and family

For pear & calvados tart, mix a splash of calvados into the cream and top with caramelised pears for caramelized summer fruit tart. For chocolate orange tart, mix orange zest into the cream and dust the tart liberally with cocoa and chocolate shavings. For rhubarb & pistachio tart, top the tart with roasted rhubarb and chopped pistachios.

Preparation of Summer Fruit Tart Caramelized:

Step 1. Put a rack in the center of the oven and heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone liner or parchment paper. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons Demerara sugar in an approximate 10-by-13-inch rectangle in the center of the liner or paper for a tasty summer fruit tart caramelized

Step 2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together granulated sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add fruit, lemon juice, honey and vanilla. With a rubber spatula or large spoon, mix well, making sure fruit is coated with the cornstarch mixture. Set aside to macerate while rolling out dough.

Step 3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the cold puff pastry out to form a 10-by-13-inch rectangle. Work quickly, as the pastry becomes sticky as it warms up. Transfer the dough to prepared baking sheet, laying it on top of the Demerara sugar. With a sharp knife, lightly score a 3/4-inch border around the edges of the puff pastry, making sure not to cut the pastry all the way through. Using a fork, prick the pastry all over inside the border at 1-inch intervals.

Step 4. Give the fruit another toss to dissolve any honey that may have clumped. Arrange fruit mixture in an even layer on pastry within the border, pouring the juices from the bowl over the top. Sprinkle the top of the tart, including the fruit and pastry borders, with more Demerara sugar.

Step 5. Bake until the pastry is puffed and deeply golden and the fruit is tender, about 30 to 40 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire tack to cool for at least 15 minutes before serving (or up to 4 hours). If the fruit looks dry when the tart comes out of the oven, you can brush it with a little more honey while it’s still warm. Serve with whipped cream, crème fraîche or ice cream.

Step 6. Enjoy!
