Cooking Class Fresh Fruit Tart Recipe From Texas B&

Peach, Plum & Berry Tart

This buttery delicious fruit tart was made during one of our recent cooking class weekends at the ranch.  It harnesses all the delicious goodness of fresh fruit of the season and only needs the addition of a little sugar and spices to really complement the fresh sweet-tart taste of the peaches, plums and berries creating a burst of flavor with every bite!  This tart is best eaten the day of cooking but will still be good the next day even though the crust will have lost its’ flaky crunch.  Most people want to top fruit tarts with whipped cream or ice cream but the deliciousness of the fresh fruit and buttery flavor of the puff pastry don’t require any addition!
