Fresh Fruit Tart

“When life gives you fruits, make fruit-tart.”    ( … or fruit-salad 😛 )

When I go grocery shopping, I pick up plenty of fruits thinking I should incorporate a lot of it in my diet as they are healthy and nutritious and blah blah blah. By the end of the week, I would still have most of the fruits lying in my pantry. This time, I made a quick fruit tart.

All you need is a basic pie crust, some whipped cream and fruits of your choice. 😀

Ingredients:

Flour – 1.5 cups
Cold butter – 1/4 cup
Cold water – 4-5 tbsp
Salt – a pinch

Step 1: In a bowl, mix the flour, salt and butter using a hand mixer, until the butter is distributed evenly.

Step 2: Gradually add in the water and try to make a soft, non-sticky dough.

Step 3: Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 4: Into a baking tray, spread some butter, and place the unwrapped dough in here. Spread with your palm and fingers until it covers the whole tray.

Step 5: Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until the pastry begins to brown at the edges.

Allow it to cool. Top with whipped cream and fresh fruits of your choice. I’ve added watermelon, plum, kiwi and pear. 🙂
