IMG_6506Today I wanted to bake a “Plums Tarte” but unfortunately I realized I didn’t have enough plums and no time to go to the market. Luckily I had 2 cans of sliced peaches in syrup in case of ‘failure’ which came in handy today …  Instead I ended with a “Peaches and plums tarte” !!

Serves 8 (generous slices)

For the crust: (pate sablee)

Ingredients:

  • 300g of plain flour
  • 125g of soft butter
  • 100g of icing sugar
  • 1 egg
  • A pinch of salt
  • 25ml of water

Procedure:

  1. In a bowl (or food processor), add your flour, salt, egg, the icing sugar  and the soft butter.
  2. Start to mix for a few seconds and slowly add the water.
  3. Mix until the dough is assembled more few seconds.
  4. Wrap the dough  in a plastic wrap and keep it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

For the filling:

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of sliced yellow peaches in syrup
  • 1/2kg of fresh plums
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar
  • 100g of powdered almond
  • Sliced almonds

Go back to the crust:

  1. Grease a tart pan .
  2. Roll your dough between two big sheet of parchment paper or plastic wrap.
  3. With a rolling pin, flatten the dough and make a circle shape, the size of your tart pan.
  4. Peel off the parchment paper from one side or your plastic wrap, flip the dough over the tart plate and slowly remove the other parchment paper or your plastic wrap.
  5. With a fork, poke the bottom of your dough.

Final step:

  1. Wash and rinse the plums.
  2. Cut in half the plums and remove the bones.
  3. Drain the peaches.
  4. Sprinkle the bottom of the dough with the powdered almond.
  5. Add the fruits on the bottom, try to alternate the fruits.
  6. Preheat your oven to 180C degrees.
  7. Pour the honey on the top of the fruits.
  8. Sprinkle with the vanilla sugar.
  9. Sprinkle with the sliced almonds.
  10. Bake for 45 minutes , remove from the oven when the crust is golden brown, allow to cool for 15 minutes.

The Tarte is excellent, sweet with peaches and sour with the plums, I will certainly do it again!

Bon Appetit.
