Plum & Cardamom Puff Pastry Tarts

Plum & Cardamom

Puff Pastry Tarts  

Earlier this week we went to a PYO Farm and care back with the most delicious, sweet plums. Today I decided to use up some puff pastry to make these crispy, crunchy and sweet little tarts!  

I love the combination of plum and cardamom - they have such a sweet flavour which pairs beautifully with earthy and fresh cardamom.

1 sheets of shop bought puff pastry ⠀⠀⠀

3 tbsps milk (or 1 whisked egg)

4-5 plums, finely sliced

1/4 tsp cardamom powder 

 2 tbsp maple syrup or honey (note no honey for under 1’s)


1. Preheat your oven to 200c and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2. Roll out the pastry and cut it into 8 or 12 squares (depending on how big you want your pastries to be!) and place onto the baking tray.

3. In a bowl, combine the plum slices, cardamom powder and maple syrup/honey.
