Blueberry Cherry Tart

Combine mouth-watering cherries with blueberries bursting with flavour to make this sweet, juicy tart!

Instructions

Pastry

  • Sieve the flour and salt into a mixing bowl, add the butter and rub together until a breadcrumb mixture forms. Stir in the icing sugar, mix in the egg yolks and two tablespoons of water. Form the mixture into a ball, wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for half an hour.

  • Roll out the pastry to the thickness of a pound coin, and line a tart tin with the pastry (leaving an overhang) and return to the fridge for half an hour.

  • Heat the oven to 200C or 180C for fan assisted ovens, line the pastry tin with baking paper, pop baking beans on top and place in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove the baking paper and bake for a further 10 minutes or until golden brown. Leave to cool then trim off the overhanding edges with a knife.

Filling

  • Place the cherries, blueberries, lemon juice, sugar, blueberry fruit powder, water and corn starch in a saucepan over a medium heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar (about 4 - 5 minutes). Remove from the heat and leave to cool.

  • Spoon the filling on top of the pastry and bake until hot through.
