Individual Summer Fruit Tarts

These delighful and easy tarts really benefit from the addition of steam but can be cooked in a dry oven as well . Puff Pastry is one of the foods that people are most surprised to hear that benefit from the addition of steam.  Add at least 50% humidity to your oven to really see the effect that can result in up to 50% more rise in puff pastry.
