Easy Fruit Tart

Fruit tarts are gorgeous and hard to resist. This recipe is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser because it only takes a few minutes and a handful of ingredients. Here are the ingredients you will need:

-1 sheet of ready-made puff pastry
-3 cups of assorted fresh fruits, diced into small cubes
-1/2 cup of apricot preserve
-1/4 cup of melted butter
-1/4 cup of sugar
-1 egg yolk

To make the fruit tart, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the pastry sheet in a 9 or 10-inch tart pan and press gently along the sides and the bottom. Spread the fruit cubes over the pastry sheet evenly. In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, apricot preserve, and sugar until smooth. Spread the mixture over the diced fruits. In another bowl, whisk together the egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of water until frothy. Brush the egg yolk over the fruits and the pastry crust. Bake for about 20 minutes until the crust turns golden and the fruits are bubbly. Let the tart cool before serving.

No-Bake Berries Cheesecake

Cheesecakes are delicious and require no elaborate preparation. Here is a simple and quick recipe for a no-bake berry cheesecake. You will need:

-2 cups of graham crackers, finely crushed
-1/4 cup of melted butter
-1 cup of cream cheese, softened
-1/4 cup of powdered sugar
-1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
-1 cup of heavy cream, chilled
-2 cups of assorted fresh berries

To make the cheesecake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. On a baking dish, spread the Graham cracker crumbs and pour over the melted butter, and mix with a spoon. Bake for 10 minutes until the butter is absorbed and the crumbs turn golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool while preparing the cheese filling. In a mixing bowl, add the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar and beat until fluffy. Then, add in the heavy cream and vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Spread the cheese filling over the cooled graham cracker crust. Top the filling with a layer of fresh berries. Refrigerate for about 4 hours until setting before serving.

Chocolate Macarons

Macarons are some of the most elegant and delicate desserts. This chocolate macaron recipe requires a bit of skill and precision but will be worth every bit of effort. Here are the ingredients you will need:

For the macaron shells:
-2/3 cup of almond flour
-2/3 cup of powdered sugar
-3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
-3 large egg whites
-1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar
-3/4 cup of caster sugar

For the chocolate ganache filling:
-3/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
-1/2 cup of heavy cream

To make the macarons, sift together the almond flour, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder in a bowl and set aside. In a stand mixer, beat together the egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Gradually add in the caster sugar while continuing to beat. Stop when stiff peaks begin to form. Transfer the egg whites mixture to the bowl of sifted almond flour mixture and gently fold until combined. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a round tip. Pipe the mixture onto the baking trays lined with parchment paper, forming 2-inch circles. Tap the trays lightly and leave the macaron shells to sit for 40 minutes until formed a skin. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for about 12 minutes until risen and firm.

To make the chocolate ganache, heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan until hot but not boiling. Pour the heavy cream over the chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes until the cream begins to melt the chips. Whisk together until creamy and smooth. Allow the ganache to set at room temperature. Once the macaron shells have cooled, spread a generous amount of ganache over one shell and sandwich it with another. Refrigerate for 10 minutes until set before serving.
