Plum Tart

I'm still in love with Plums. 

In an earlier post I spoke about how, as a child, I was never a huge fan of plums. Then I decided to try them as an adult and I realized they were a delicious stone fruit worthy of attention on my blog. I've already made plum jam and even incorporated them into my breakfast pancakes.
A plum tart was always going to be part of the equation eventually. So armed with my puff pastry I decided to make another batch of my plum jam and layer sliced plums on top. Its an easy fruit dessert that takes so little time and is worth the effort.

Plum Tart
1 cup Plum Jam
1 puff pastry
5 plums sliced thin

Unfold the puff pastry and dust with flour. Roll out puff pastry to a smooth rectangle and then cut 1 inch off each side and stack it on the edge. (provides height on the sides so the filling doesn't run out) Spread the jam over the interior of the puff pastry. Fan the sliced plums in rows. Bake at 400 degrees for roughly 20 minutes until until the pastry is cooked through and becomes a lovely golden brown.


  1. Yummy! Love the puffs. Crisp and butter..just irresistible.

  2. Love, love love! I am a huge fan of anything that looks fancy but is really simple! I have an event to attend tomorrow and this would go over so well. (Though, to be honest, I will probably just buy plum jam.) Thanks!

  3. I love plums as well :) And this tart looks so simple and impressive! Perfect!

  4. This tart looks absolutely mouthwatering! I love the simplicity of it, and I'm sure it tastes great. Thanks for sharing:)
