Ingredients

  • 320g ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 1 beaten free-range egg
  • 2 thinly sliced apples
  • 2 thinly sliced pears
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp apricot jam
  • Crème fraîche (optional)

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Unroll the ready-rolled puff pastry onto a baking sheet lined with non-stick baking paper. Using the tip of a sharp knife, score a 1cm border all the way round. Generously brush the beaten egg all over the pastry.
  2. In a bowl, mix the apples, pears and the lemon juice.
  3. Combine the ground almonds and ground cinnamon in a small bowl, then sprinkle evenly over the centre of the pastry. Top with the apple and pear mixture.
  4. Sprinkle over the brown sugar, then bake for 30-35 minutes until the pastry is puffed and golden. Warm through the apricot jam and a few drops of water in a pan or microwave, then generously brush over the finished tart. Serve the tart with dollops of crème fraîche, if you like.
