This is considered to be THE German fruit tart. Traditionally this is baked on yeast pastry, but the sweet German pastry is also a perfect base. It must be made with cold butter and the dough chilled before using, otherwise there is a tendency to add additional flour, which is a mistake. The crust rises up between the fruits and the delicious juices are absorbed into the pastry.
