The eeeeasiest dessert, almost too easy to call this a recipe, but it's perfect for that quick weeknight treat craving. You can use whatever fruit you like for this, but whatever you choose will dictate how long you need to cook it for. In summertime, I love stone fruit like peaches, in winter time you can just use frozen berries or tinned peaches!
About 400g sliced fruit of your choice (see note above)
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 sheet puff pastry
2 Tbsp chopped almonds (or other nuts if you prefer)
Icing sugar for dusting
Whipped cream or ice cream to serve
Preheat your oven to 220°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
*If you're using only frozen berries, skip this step.
Slice your fruit and place in a small pot with brown sugar and vanilla. Cook on low heat for 5 minutes for soft fruit and about 8 minutes for hard fruit like apples.
Place pastry onto prepared tray and use a sharp knife to score a 1cm border around the pastry. Prick a few holes in the centre with a fork then bake for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, remove the pastry from the oven and use the back of a spoon to push down the puffed up centre of the pastry. Transfer your fruit to the centre of the pastry (or place all your berries on now) and return to the oven for 5-8 minutes, until fruit it piping hot.
Top tart with almonds and dust over icing sugar.
Serve immediately with ice cream.
