Chill the pastry again before baking.

Do not skip the extra chilling step when making this. Pop it in the fridge after working with it, while the oven preheats. This step gives the butter a chance to re-solidify. That is the trick to getting that puff! Take a look at the additional tips for baking with puff pastry, from Kelli Foster at The Kitchen.

Tips For Baking With Puff Pastry

How to select the tastiest strawberries:

Color: Look for strawberries that have a deep red color all over. Avoid ones that are mostly white or green, as they are likely underripe.

Texture: Ripe strawberries should be firm and plump. Avoid berries that are mushy or have soft spots, as these are likely overripe or starting to spoil.

Smell: Take a whiff of the strawberries. Ripe strawberries should have a sweet, fruity aroma. If they lack any scent or have a sour smell, they might not be fully ripe.

Size:While size doesn’t necessarily indicate ripeness, larger strawberries tend to be riper compared to smaller ones.

Stem and Leaves:Check the green stems and leaves of the strawberries. They should look fresh, green, and vibrant. Avoid berries with brown or dried-out stems.

Remember that strawberries do not ripen after being picked, so it’s essential to select the ripest ones from the start to enjoy their best flavor and texture. If you plan to store them, refrigerate them and consume them as soon as possible for the best taste.

Are Blueberries Healthy?

Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids. Blueberries are also high in potassium and vitamin C, making them the top choice of doctors and nutritionists. Not only can they lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, they are also anti-inflammatory. 

10 Proven Health Benefits from Blueberries

Speaking of blueberries, check out this recipe! Try The Vegan Dollhouse’s lemon blueberry cookies! They are soft and chewy. The slightly golden bottoms give the vegan cookies a tiny bit of crispiness in that first bite. With fresh blueberries, lemon juice, and lemon zest, you won’t be able to stop thinking about the flavors.

Ingredients

  • 1 package puff pastry
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 3 tablespoon raspberry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon course sugar can use regular sugar or turbinado sugar

Instructions

  • Prepare the fruit by rinsing and patting dry. Remove the hulls and quarter the strawberries. Set aside. Place the raspberry preserves in a heat proof glass bowl, and warm slightly on half power for about 30 seconds.

  • On a piece of parchment paper, roll out the puff pastry. Using a pastry brush, paint the raspberry preserves lightly onto the puff pastry. Leave a 1 inch frame without the preserves around the outside edge.

  • Place the strawberries over the preserves. Add the blueberries over the strawberries to fill in the spaces. Crimp the edges by folding over the crust. Add the remaining preserves over the top.

  • Brush the pastry with almond milk and sprinkle with the course sugar. Also sprinkle some sugar of the top of the fruit. Slide tart on parchment onto a baking sheet pan. Place tart in freezer for 20 minutes to chill. This step is very important, to have your pastry puff up.

  • While tart is chilling, pre-heat oven to 400 F.
  • Place tart in oven. Set timer for 10 minutes. At the 10 minute mark, spin tart around and bake for another 20 minutes. Since ovens vary, at 20 minutes, if the pastry is puffed and golden brown, but fruit is not bubbling, cover loosely with a tent of foil. If not yet browned, bake another 10 minutes. Once fruit is bubbling and pastry is golden brown, your tart is ready.
  • Remove from oven and allow to rest for about 10 minutes. Slice into squares and serve warm. This can be served alone or with some dairy free ice cream.
