{Another} Nectarine Dessert: Nectarine Tart Recipe

Saturday, June 15, 2013

There are too many nectarines to keep up with on my neighbor's tree!  Every time I pick some to eat, I leave them on the counter for a day and they get overly ripe.  It seems as though you have to pick them and eat them instantly.  Or, like today, pick a bunch to use in a dessert...but what kind?

I have never made a tart before, but they always look so beautiful.  I looked at a few examples and decided on this recipe.  It is sweet, but not overly so, and would be perfect for a brunch or summertime BBQ.



Ingredients:
  • 1 puff pastry sheet
  • 3 cups sliced nectarines
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp. raw sugar
Instructions: {adapted from this recipe at Bakers Royale}
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees with baking sheet inside of it.
  2. Defrost puff pastry on a sheet of parchment paper, according to package instructions.
  3. Fold the edge of the pastry over to create a border 1/2 inch wide. 
  4. Mix the nectarines, honey and lemon juice together in a bowl.  
  5. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and place pastry on it.  Fill the center of the pastry with the nectarine mixture.
  6. Brush the border with the beaten egg and sprinkle raw sugar over it.
  7. Bake for 25-30* minutes or until pastry is golden brown. 
  8. Serve warm or at room temperature.  Enjoy!
         *I like my pastry dough more crisp than doughy, so I had mine baking for 30 minutes.
          After about 20 minutes, watch your tart to make sure it is baked to your liking.
