  • 200g dried mixed fruit
  • zest and juice 1 small orange



    One of the best-known citrus fruits, oranges aren't necessarily orange - some varieties are…

  • 1 x 375g sheet ready-rolled puff pastry (we used Saxby's)
  • 3 tbsp apricot jam
  • 200g marzipan
    Marzipan cake



    One of mankind’s oldest sources of sweet pleasure, marzipan needs to contain only ground…


  1. Mix the fruit, zest and juice in a bowl. Unroll pastry onto a baking sheet. Mark a border 2cm from the edge with a knife, brush jam over the inside section, then chill for 10 mins.

  2. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Drain the fruit, then stir in marzipan. Scatter the fruit mix inside the border. Bake for 20 mins, until pastry is golden. Cut into squares and serve.

Made the tarts and the second version of pin wheels for my husbands birthday BBQ. The tarts were quite floppy and messy. The pin wheel version was a hit and was asked for recipes! Over all, love it!

Made this for Easter lunch. Did it exactly as the recipe says, utterly delicious. Served with single cream. May try soaking the fruit in brandy rather than juice if I do this again. It would also work as a lighter desser at Christmas which I may well do as we're not great fans of Christmas pudding.
