Real Easy Food – Really Rustic Country Tart

Durban last week 095
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.
 
1 PACKAGE OF FROZEN PUFF PASTRY THAWED
1/2 CUP BLANCHED ALMOND FLOUR -TO MAKE GRIND WHOLE BLANCHED ALMONDS IN A FOOD PROCESSOR

1/2 TEASPOON OF VANILLA EXTRACT
1 POUND OF FRUIT ON HAND, APPLES OR PEARS CHERRIES-APRICOTS-PEACHES FOR SUMMER
 
ROLL OUT PASTRY ON A LIGHTLY FLOURED SURFACE IN WHATEVER SHAPE YOU PREFER TO A 1/4 INCH THICKNESS.
ROLL UP THE EDGES TO FORM A CRUST TO HOLD FILLING.

HEAT OVEN TO 425 DEGREES.
REMOVE PASTRY FROM FRIDGE AND PRICK ALL OVER WITH A FORK
