Pluot Tart

This tart is the perfect dessert for an intimate date night. When plated with a scoop of creamy, vanilla ice cream or a generous dollop of whipped cream, it can easily serve 4-5 people. The sweet crust contrasts nicely with the tang of the pluots. The folded crust makes the tart look elegant and photo-worthy — no matter how inexperienced the baker is!

Pluot Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
