Blackberry and Apple Freeform Tart
  1. To make pastry, place flour, icing sugar and salt in a food processor. Process to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs
  2. With processor running, add water and briefly process until pastry clumps (add extra water if necessary).
  3. Form into a ball Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 20 minutes
  4. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line a 30cm tart pan pan or pizza tray with baking paper.
  5. Combine frozen berries, apple and sugar in a large bowl
  6. Roll out pastry on a lightly floured surface to form a 35cm circle Lay pastry over base of prepared pan. Brush base with egg
  7. Place berry mixture into centre of pastry, leaving a 6cm border.
  8. Fold pastry edges into toward the centre to partially encase fruit (press pastry to seal any cracks if necessary).
  9. Brush with egg and sprinkle with extra caster sugar.
  10. Bake for 40-45 minutes until pastry is golden.
  11. Remove and cool for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate or board.
  12. Dust with icing sugar. Slice and serve with thick cream or vanilla ice-cream.
Tips & Hints:
  • Spoon the frozen berry and apple mixture into the unbaked tart shell forming a small peak in the centre as the berries will collapse with cooking
  • Be gentle when rolling the pastry, turning it around often, and try to only roll in one direction (instead of back and forth) to keep the pastry tender. Make sure the pastry is well sealed to prevent berry juices from escaping
  • For a healthier version, with half as much fat, use 1⅓ cup plain flour, 1 cup wholemeal flour, replace the butter with 40% reduced-fat sunflower spread and reduce ⅓ cup sugar down to 2tb adding extra granulated sugar substitute if required for sweetness.
