French Fruit Flans
This is about being impressive with the LEAST amount of work possible! Yes, I usually make my own pastry, but occassionally, I just don't have time (WHAT??? I hear you say, you only have 5 children) - haha - the little frozen tart cases work a treat. You simply bake them for 10 minutes! No rolling out, no hard work. Alternatively, this flan is simply divine in a large dish as one big flan!
After you have your pastry ready this is what you will need:
1 x instant vanilla pudding
600ml thickened cream
100ml fresh milk
Fruits (loving strawberries, blueberries, kiwi - however, slices of canned apricot is also delicious on this and can make a GORGOUS patterned large flan - see my pic below - WITH home made pastry)
Decorate with fruits of choice.
Make a glaze using about 1/4 cup apricot jam/conserve and 1 tablespoon water, heat in microwave for 30 seconds and mix together.
Brush over top of fruits. Also to cool and all set.
