I am a big fan of stone fruit and nectarines are my fave! This easy recipe takes just a short while to make and can be served hot or cold.
Nectarine and Almond Tart
1 roll all butter puff pastry ( or normal if you can’t find)
4-5 Ripe nectarines
125ml ground almonds
125 ml flaked almonds
125 ml butter
125 ml sugar
5 ml cinnamon
5ml all spice
NB *Thaw puff pastry night before*
Roll out puff pastry on a greased baking sheet. Systematically fold the edges of the puff pastry over to create a lip for the tart.
Heat butter, sugar, spices and ground almonds over a low heat until it has all melted.
Slice nectarines into equal sized slice ( I cut mine into thin wedges)
Spread butter mixture all over pastry.
Layer nectarines across pastry in rows.
Egg wash the borders of the puff pastry for a nice golden edge.
Sprinkle a bit of extra sugar over the top and bake as per pastry baking instructions.
I take mine out a few minutes before it needs to and sprinkle teh flakes almonds over the nectarine tart so they can brown a bit.
Makes 8 very generous portions or 16 lady size portions. Serve warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or stiff whipped cream.
