1 Comment

Fruit Tart – This can be made with plums, apples, pears, peaches. It’s truly delicious.

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour (at Passsover substitute matzo cake meal)

3/4 cups walnuts (or almonds)

1/2 granulated sugar

6 T unsalted butter, cut into pieces (butter should be cold)

1 egg yolk

Approximately 2 lbs of ripe fruit, cut into small wedges

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a food processor combine walnuts, sugar and butter. Process until walnuts are finely chopped. Add flour and egg yolk and process another few seconds until well combined with a sand-like texture.

Press about 1.5 cups of dough into a tart pan (9-10″) cover the bottom and go up the sides as well. Arrange the fruit in concentric circles on top of the dough, overlapping the wedges of fruit. Sprinkle remaining dough on top over the fruit.

Bake 45 minutes until top is browned. Remove from oven, cool about 10 minutes before serving.

Serves 4-6
