This is the easiest dessert but is sensational if you use in-season fresh fruit
2 sheets ready puff pastry
2 cups peeled & chopped tamarillos
12 cup white sugar
Pre-heat oven to 180 C.
In a pot simmer fruit and sugar until the fruit softens and syrup thickens slightly, about 5-10 minutes.
Make a rectangle with your pastry sheets, joining them by moistening the edges and pressing firmly at the join. You can use a tart tin or an oven tray but if using a flat tray, build up the sides roughly by folding the pastry at the edges, so that the fruit filling doesn’t run out.
Drop spoonfuls of the fruit evenly down the length of the pastry. Place the tart tin on a baking tray (the double layer of tin means that the tart base cooks to crisp without having to blind-bake it) and bake for 20 minutes or until the edges are puffed up and golden.
Allow to cool then gently lift out of tin and serve on a flat board with whipped cream, mascarpone or cheat’s cream as per recipe below.
