What You’ll Need For Fruit Tart

  • creamy peanut butter– I use a natural creamy butter such as Skippy or Jif.
  • honey– Your favorite honey works great here. Make sure it drizzles nicely.
  • apples– Granny Smith Apples work lovely for these tarts, adds a touch of tart to the sweetness.
  • puff pastry sheets– Find puff pastry sheets in the freezer section of the grocery store. Many times near the whipped cream in tubs.
  • powdered sugar– Also called confectioners sugar. Find in the baking section of the grocery store.

    An American friend and I were trying to explain to our English men the appeal (heh) of apples and peanut butter. They didn’t get it. Methinks, should this be put in front of them, they would no longer question the beautiful deliciousness of such a pair. Mmmm. Thanks for sharing!
