  • ½ cup seedless raspberry jam
  • ½ cup orange marmalade
  • ½ cup rosé wine
  1.            Wash (rinse well), dry and hull, fruit, slice strawberries and gently mix together with other fruit in a bowl.
  2.           In a microwave safe bowl, melt raspberry jam and orange marmalade together in the microwave, add rosé wine and stir together, when blended, pour over berries and set aside.  Filling is made!

Pastry:

  • 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup finely ground almonds
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons cold water
  1.                    In a large bowl, combine flour, ground almonds and salt; cut in shortening/butter until crumbly. Gradually add cold water a little at a time, tossing with a fork until a ball forms. Divide pastry in two so that one ball is a bit larger than the other. Wrap pastry in plastic wrap and refrigerate and allow dough to rest for at least ½ an hour.
  2.                   On a lightly floured surface, roll out larger ball to fit a 9-in. Tart pan.  Carefully transfer pastry to tart pan and trim evenly to edge of pan. Add filling. Roll out remaining pastry; make and place decorative crust pieces, either cutting by hand or using cookie cutters.  Brush cutouts with heavy cream or egg wash prior to placing on tart.
  3.                    Bake 350°F for 38-40 minutes until crust is golden brown.

HappyRed-White&Blue Holiday!
