Bistro Fruit Tart

Bistro Tart This is a very quick and easy tart to make, using store bought filo dough. A variety of fruit can be used including apples and pears or even mango or nectarine. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

3 tbsp
1 tsp
filo sheets
ground cinnamon
  1. Heat the oven to 400°F
  2. Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together.
  3. Keeping the rest of the filo covered with a damp dish towel, lay one sheet on a baking sheet and brush with melted butter and sprinkle on one sixth of the sugar mixture.
  4. Lay another sheet of filo on top, and repeat the butter and sugar laying for each of the other 5 sheets.
  5. Trim the edges of the pastry to neaten.
  6. Peel, core and thinly slice the apples. Then arrange the slices in neat rows across the layered filo, to cover it completely.
  7. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle over the remaining sugar.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes.
  9. Allow to cool on the baking tray, then cut into fingers and serve.
