This is an incredibly easy dessert with a wow factor. I adapted it from Show Me The Curry. Here's how I made it:
1 roll of ready-made frozen pie crust
2 - 3 cups choice of fruits - I have used bananas, mangos and strawberries, all sliced thinly
For the glaze - 2 tbsp orange juice, 2 tbsp water, 1 tsp corn starch, 2 tbsp sugar, pinch of salt, pinch of orange zest
To make the crust - Thaw the pie crust roll per package instructions. Divide into 4 parts. Gently roll each part with palms to form balls. Roll each ball into a circle abt 5 inches in diameter, use some flour to dust while rolling. Bake the circles at 400F for 20 mins turning once in between. Cool before assembly.
To make the glaze - combine all the ingredients in a small pan and heat gently, whisking continuously till it comes to a gentle boil. Take off heat, cool before assembly.
To assemble the Fruit Tart - lay the fruit on the baked crusts, brush with the prepared orange glaze. Chill for 2 hours. Then cut into wedges and serve.
This Fruit tart goes to the Celebrate Sweets event at Raks Kitchen.
