Apple and Caramel Tarts (Autumn Eating) September 17, 2016

apple-caramel

 

Right first off I’ve got to say a big hello to my new followers, HELLO & welcome to my blog.

This post might be a bit of a let-down for some of you as I’ve only used tinned food from my cupboard & pastry from the freezer.

 

Ingredients

1 tin of apple pie filling

1 tin of caramel sauce

1 pack of frozen puff pastry

1 egg

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

 

Method

 

Remove the pastry from the freezer the day before.

Preheat the oven to 175C/gas 4.

Roll out your pastry and cut circles and place in a 12 hole bun tin.

Into each pastry place a tsp of caramel sauce then top with apple pie filling.

Mix the cinnamon and nutmeg together and sprinkle over the apple pie filling.

Cut strips of pastry with what you have left over and make a lattice top on each tart.

Mix the egg with a fork and brush the tops of the tarts then place in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

These are lovely hot from the oven but just as good when cold.

Of course if your good at making pastry (which I’m not) you can make your own.

Also if you’d like to use fresh apples you could peel the skin off 1/2 a dozen green apples then continue peeling so you have bowl of white peel and just put the peel on top of the caramel sauce.

However you make them, I hope you enjoy 🙂

Strawberry Tarts September 12, 2015

Strawberry Tarts

These are a lovely tasty way to say goodbye to Summer and they’re easy to make too.

If you’ve visited my blog before you’ll most probably know I’m useless at making pastry, so I bought ready made all butter pastry cases. But go ahead and make your own if thats what your good at 😉 I used 8 pastry cases but you could use mini ones or make one large tart.

 

Ingredients for the strawberry filling

 

2 cups of washed, hulled and roughly mashed strawberries

1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus 3 Tbsp

zest of one lemon

3 tsp cornflour

 

Ingredients for the vanilla cream topping

 

1/2 cup soured cream

2 Tbsp soft dark brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla bean paste or 1/2 a vanilla bean, seeds scraped out

small srawberries for garnish, optional

 

Method for the strawberry filling

 

In a small saucepan, combine all of the ingredients and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

Continue to cook for about 5 minutes, until thickened.

Allow to cool for 15 minutes, then divide into the tart shells. Place in the fridge to chill.

 

Method for the vanilla cream topping

 

In a small bowl stir together the sour cream, brown sugar, and vanilla, until smooth.

Dollop onto the chilled tarts, and top with a mini strawberry.

Tip: This vanilla cream topping does not go thick like whipped cream. Best not to put on top of the tarts until your ready to serve. This cream is also delicious used for dipping fruit into.

Mini Jam

Well as far as I know, everyone loves a jam tart. Today as I had some leftover pastry I thought I’d make some, but, then decided the Grandchildren might like some in their sizes. How cute are these?

 

Not really a recipe as I used leftover pastry, just wanted to show them off.

I used a 78mm cutter for the regular size tarts and a 48mm cutter for the mini tarts.

Filled some with seedless strawberry jam and some with lemon curd.

For the mini tarts I used a Lakeland silicone chocolate mould.
