Easy Simnel Tart Recipe

A quick Easter tart perfect for friends and family. I Made the tarts and the second version of pin wheels for my husbands birthday BBQ. The tarts were quite floppy and messy. The pin wheel version was a hit and was asked for recipes! Over all, love it!

Ingredients

  • 200g dried mixed fruit
  • zest and juice 1 small orange
  • 1 x 375g sheet ready-rolled puff pastry (we used Saxby’s)
  • 3 tbsp apricot jam
  • 200g marzipan

Method

  1. Mix the fruit, zest and juice in a bowl. Unroll pastry onto a baking sheet. Mark a border 2cm from the edge with a knife, brush jam over the inside section, then chill for 10 mins.
  2. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Drain the fruit, then stir in marzipan. Scatter the fruit mix inside the border. Bake for 20 mins, until pastry is golden. Cut into squares and serve.
