It’s a family weekend, so I am going to cook and make a fruit tart, this tart will please everyone. This is a very tasty recipe, Mine is going to be apple which goes very well with the almonds, but you can pick any fruit you like. It is also wonderful to use the local fruit of Windsor & Essex County, so tasty and fresh! I don’t bother making my own pastry as ready-made is so good, not to mention easy. My favourite is the President’s Choice brand puff pastry and I also like the phyllo pastry too.
