South African apple & pear smart tart


2 South African pears, peeled,

cored and thinly sliced

2 South African apples, such as

Pink Lady, cored and thinly sliced

2 tbsp lemon juice

270g (9½oz) pack of filo pastry,

thawed if frozen

80g (3oz) low fat spread, melted

¼ tsp ground cinnamon or mixed


4 tbsp icing sugar, plus extra for


1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6. Toss the South African pear and apple slices in the lemon juice. Set aside.

2 Unroll the sheets of filo pastry. Brush a large baking sheet with a little melted low fat spread. Layer the sheets of pastry on top, brushing each one lightly with melted low fat spread.

3 Arrange the fruit on top, scrunching up the edges of the pastry to form a border. Sprinkle the apples and pears with the ground cinnamon or mixed spice and icing sugar. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.

4 Serve warm, sprinkled with extra icing sugar.


This delicious tart is perfect for using up excess fruit – making sure that it doesn’t get wasted.

Recipe from Bonne Maman – The Seasonal Cookbook (Simon & Schuster), available through Amazon, WH Smith and Waterstones (£14.99). Recipe development by Moyra Fraser.

Berries and cherries syllabub


125g (4oz) Bonne Maman Berries

and Cherries Conserve

150ml (5floz) medium white wine,

(Chardonnay is good)

150g (5oz) caster sugar

1 tbsp Grand Marnier

2 tbsp Cassis

600ml (20floz) double cream

Bonne Maman Galettes, to serve

1 Place the conserve, wine, sugar, Grand Marnier and Cassis in a saucepan, stir to mix and leave over a very gentle heat for about 20 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved. Remove and allow to cool for about 30 minutes.

2 Add the cream to the conserve and wine mixture. Using a hand-held electric whisk, whisk until the mixture stands in soft peaks – this will take slightly longer than whisking cream due to the extra liquid. Take care not to overwhip as the mixture may separate.
