Fruit Tart

Market Street Grill has this really yummy fruit tart as one of their desserts and I found the recipe online! So I thought I would share it with all of you. They also have other recipes on their website that are probably equally delicious if you want to try them as well.

Tart Dough Ingredients:

1/4 cup almond paste (will be found next to the pie making ingredients in the store)
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
pinch of salt
3 egg yolks
1 ounce whipping cream (which is about half of a 1/4 cup)
2 cups cake flour

Using an electric mixer on medium speed, blend all of the above ingredients until combined, but don't over-mix! Chill dough for 10 minutes.

Roll out dough on floured board to 1/4" thickness and place in a 10" fluted pie tin with a removable bottom (also a spring form pan will work). Bake for 25 minutes at 325 degrees, remove from oven and store in a cool, dry place.

Mock Pastry Cream Filling Ingredients:

(1) 5.1 ounce box of vanilla jell-o pudding (disregard package directions)
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp. pure almond extract
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla

If using a spring form pan, I would double the pastry filling.

Combine by hand all of the above ingredients until mixed. Chill for half an hour.

Remove tart shell from pie tin. Fill tart shell with pastry cream and level the amount. Arrange with your choice of fruit (strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, pears, apples, ect.)

Apricot Glaze Ingredients:

1/4 cup apricot jelly
1/4 cup hot water

Combine apricot jelly and hot water to make a glaze. Using a pastry brush, apply the glaze over the finished tart.
