Plum and Nectarine Tart

I recently bought plums and nectarines in an attempt to increase my daily fruit servings.  Unfortunately, the plums were very ripe and were really best suited for a baked dessert :) 

Actually, I had no intent of using them in a dessert until I got to chapter 5 tonight in Alice Waters and Chez Panisse, which has a recipe for Lindsey's Almond Tart.  Great book, by the way.

Seeing the recipe immediately reminded me of the pear tart I made last month and got me thinking about a plum and nectarine version.  A short google search later, I found a recipe that looked suitable and we were both very happy with the result!

1/3 cup sugar
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
6 plums, pitted and sliced
4 nectarines, pitted and sliced
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp milk


  1. I love the combination of plum and nectarine. I just made a plum and nectarine kuchen and it was super tasty. This looks just as delightful.
