Some easy fruit pastry recipes include Kraft?s Beautifully Easy Fruit Tart and Betty Crocker?s Easy Fresh Fruit Tart. For Kraft?s recipe, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Unroll 1 sheet of thawed frozen puff pastry onto a baking sheet.
Fold pastry edges over to create a 1/2-inch rim, and press firmly to seal; prick pastry with a fork. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and puffed. Cool thoroughly, and place on serving tray. Whisk together 1 package vanilla instant pudding mix and 1 cup cold milk for 2 minutes. Stir in 1 cup thawed whipped topping, and spread mixture over pastry.
Melt 1 ounce white baking chocolate according to package instructions. Arrange 1 cup quartered fresh strawberries, 1 drained can mandarin oranges and 1 peeled, halved and sliced kiwi on pudding mixture. Mix 3 tablespoons apricot preserves with 2 teaspoons water, and brush onto fruit. Drizzle with chocolate. This recipe makes 9 servings.
Betty Crocker?s recipe is similar, but it uses dough created with biscuit mix, sugar, butter and egg. This recipe makes 8 servings and uses a cream-cheese based mixture rather than a pudding-based mixture. You can use various fruits for the topping, such as raspberries, kiwi, blueberries, strawberries or blackberries. This recipe also differs in that it uses apple jelly instead of apricot and does not include a white chocolate drizzle.
