Two Tarts

Welcome to Foodie Friday!

This week, I made two easy tarts.
Apricot-blueberry with lemon curd...
and strawberry-apricot with lemon curd

As always in Gollum's kitchen, the recipes are a snap.
What You Need:
Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheets, thawed
1 jar lemon curd
canned apricots (reserve liquid)
blueberries
1 jar strawberry ice cream topping
For the apricot-lemon curd tart, I thinned the lemon curd with apricot juice and spread it onto the pastry. After arranging the apricots (I added the blueberries *after* cooking), I popped the pan into a preheated 400 degree oven and cooked 20 minutes.
For the apricot-strawberry tart, I mixed lemon curd with the strawberry topping.
Same proceedure, minus the berries.
Simple.
These tarts will be "wiggly" when you pull them from the oven. After cooling, they will collect themselves and solidify.
Enjoy!

  36. Oh my...I just love fruit tarts...especially cherry ones. I can eat cooked cherries...just not raw ;) I know I'm weird with the food allergies...I could never do the raw diet because I'm allergic to a lot of fruits and veggies when they are raw. Salad bars and I do not do well...lol Thanks for hosting once again and have a wonderful weekend Michael Lee!
    Fondly, Roberta

  37. These look so delicious! And there's something about baking a "tart" vs "pie." Pies just seem to carry with them a lot of guilt. Tarts? Not so much. :-) Just found your blog. It's lovely.
