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!

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons water

For the filling

  • 2 Cups sliced pluots
  • 3 Tablespoons light brown sugar, plus more for the crust
  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

For the crust

Mix the flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time. Add the water to the mixture. Knead the mixture until a ball of dough forms. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Roll out the dough into a large circle, and place on the baking pan.

For the filling

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Mix the pluots, sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a bowl. Place the mixture in the center of the dough. Pull the edges of the dough over the filling, leaving a circle of the fruit exposed. Sprinkle the crust with sugar. Bake for 40 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

Pluot Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

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.
