Blend or process butter, and sifted flour and icing sugar until crumbly. Add egg yolk, extract and the water; process until ingredients come together.
Enclose in plastic wrap; refrigerate 30 minutes.
Roll pastry between sheets of baking paper until large enough to line 18cm x 30cm rectangular loose-based flan tin.
Lift pastry into tin, press into sides, trim excess; prick base all over with a fork. Cover; refrigerate 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200°C.
Place tin on oven tray; line pastry with baking paper then fill with bakers weights. Bake 15 minutes. Cool.
Add fruit mince in an even layer over tart base.
Roll pastry scraps on floured surface, cut out desired shapes. Brush each pastry shape with beaten egg and place pastry egg-side down on fruit mince.
Bake tart about 20 minutes or until browned lightly. Dust with a little sifted icing sugar before serving.
