Make these delicious Puff Pastry Tarts with your favorite mixed berries! You will need only 6 ingredients, 30 minutes, and your super simple and tasty dessert is ready!
Servings: 4 Puff Pastry Tarts
- 1 sheet puff pastry thawed
- 3 cups mixed berries frozen or fresh
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 egg for egg wash
Preheat the oven to 400˚F, line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, mix together frozen mixed berries, lemon juice, lemon zest, maple syrup, and cornstarch.
Roll out the thawed dough and cut it in 4 rectangles. Place each piece on a baking sheet 2 inches apart.
Scoop the berry mixture between 4 pastry sheets, leaving about ½-1inch on the edges. Then fold these edges over the berries.
Brush the edges with egg wash.
Bake at 400˚F for about 20-25 minutes or until the dough is golden/brown color.
Serve warm with a scoop of homemade ice cream.
Puff Pastry. When thawing the dough, don’t try to unfold it right away, or it will crack. Let it sit on the counter for about 20-30 minutes, then carefully start to unfold it step by step. Also, make sure it doesn’t get too warm, otherwise it won’t rise.
Cornstarch. I would not recommend to skip this ingredient. The berries will produce a lot of juices while baking and will be too runny without the cornstarch.
Mixed Berries. I like to use a mix of frozen berries, as I always keep them in my freezer. So, when I want to make the dessert I have them on hand. You also can you any fresh berries you have at home.
Maple Syrup. If you don’t have maple syrup, you can use honey and regular sugar instead.
Egg. If you don’t want to use eggs in this recipe, you can use melted butter or milk as “an egg wash”.
Can I make these tarts ahead of the time? Yes, but they won’t taste the same. I always like to make this recipe right before I want to serve it. This way it will be warm to serve with a scoop of ice cream on top and the pastry will be perfectly flaky.
Can I reheat it? You can reheat it at 325˚F for about 15 minutes. However, when you reheat pastry it won’t be as flaky as freshly baked.
