Raspberry, Mint, & Pistachio Tart

Raspberries are the sweetest as summer dwindles down, so I find myself picking up more right before Fall starts rolling into town. I like to throw them into my breakfast cereals or on top of yogurt, but when I’m feeling a little fancy I sometimes roll up my sleeves and make a winning dessert. This recipe for Raspberry, Mint, and Pistachio Tart is so delicious and light and doesn't require too much prep time, which is great especially when you have company coming over. Hope you enjoy!

 

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 1 sheet puff pastry

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 1 tbsp. granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup creme fraiche

  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar

  • 2 1/2 cups raspberries

  • 2 tbsp. pistachios, finely chopped

  • 1 small bunch mint leaves

  • 2 tbsp. icing sugar

  8. Top with the remaining whole raspberries, some torn mint leaves and some crushed pistachios and enjoy
