Persimmon and Apple Tart

by Ooooby Crew


3 persimmons cut into eight pieces or thin slices
3 eating apples cut into eight pieces or thin slices
¼ cup water
¼ cup sugar
2 sheets of pre-rolled puff pastry
4 tsp ground almonds
a little milk to glaze
Ice cream or yogurt to serve


Preheat oven to 200 C and prepare a greased flat baking tray

Place fruit in a saucepan and add water and sugar. Mix well and cook on a medium heat for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool, pouring off the excess juice. Lay out 1 sheet of puff pastry on the baking tray. Sprinkle over 2 tsp of the ground almonds and top with a layer of apples and persimmon. Then sprinkle over remaining ground almonds.

Cut strips about 2 cm wide from the second sheet of puff pastry. Arrange the strips over the fruit (criss-cross looks attractive) and press the edges down to seal. Brush over with milk and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.

Delicious served with vanilla ice cream or yogurt.

It's fun and challenging to cook with what's available and the produce is so much fresher than anywhere else. Our family loves Ooooby!
