Fresh Fruit Tart

So...I had a bunch of fruit hanging around the house (see previous farmer's market post for the reason!!) and I happen to talk to my mom yesterday. She just made a fruit tart and I've had it before and it's wonderful. What better way to use up some fruit! My kids and I set out yesterday afternoon to make it. Here's the great recipe she gave me. It's a recipe my youngest bro put together and shared with us. It's one for all you vegans out there.

1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
dash of salt

Combine well. Add 1/4 cup ICED/VERY COLD oil. Mix with one of those pastry thingies. Add 1/4 cup ICE COLD water + 1 tsp vinegar. Mix again with pastry thingy. Roll out and make sure it's bigger than your pie pan. Drape it into the pie pan and let the extra hang over. Put in the freezer. Make the filling...

3 cups fruit (I used peaches, plums, cherries)
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp corn starch
squeeze of lemon

Mix well. Add to cold crust. Fold over the extra crust before baking. Brush crust with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Try to wait until it cools off enough so you don't burn the crap out of your mouth. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping. Delicious!!!

Kayla pretty much made the crust and rolled it out. Kevin pitted every one of those cherries for me!! It was a team effort. And a team effort eating it, although I did sneak another piece when the kids were in bed.

Here's another layout I did using the June Scrap That kit. I love this shaped Bazzill paper, so fun!! Perfect colors for this layout about my brother-in-law.

Happy Monday everyone!!
