This is how you make this puff pastry fruit tart
Heat the oven to 200 degrees.
Remove the 2 slices of puff pastry from the freezer and let it thaw. Cut a circle out of one slice with a glass or cooking plug, so that a thick edge remains. Try to keep it intact! You can use the round of dough for another pastry or throw it away, the edge of puff pastry is used for this recipe. Place the edge on the other slice of puff pastry so that you have one slice with a nice thick edge.
Mix a handful of red fruit from the freezer with icing sugar (amount to taste) and 1 teaspoon cornstarch. You can also add a little vanilla extract for extra flavor. Stir well. The cornstarch will soon cause the moisture from the fruit to thicken a bit.
Spoon the fruit into the center of the puff pastry, inside the edges. Then brush the edges with some milk (a silicone brush is handy for this, otherwise use your fingers carefully) and then sprinkle the edge with brown sugar.
Bake in the oven at 200 degrees for about 20 minutes. Then check whether the puff pastry has risen nicely and is golden brown. If not, bake for a few more minutes.
