Rustic plum tart, made with just 3 ingredients? Would I lie to you?! Fresh plums need little more than a touch of sugar before being enveloped in a buttery, free form crust in this deliciously simple tart. It’s the perfect summer dessert.
The freshest, sun-ripened fruit requires very little in the way of adornment for it to be transformed into an enticing dessert. I stumbled upon this phenomena once when I found myself up to my elbows in freshly picked blueberries. So I baked three-bite blueberry shortbread pies on a whim. It’s plain to see that the simplicity of combining a few quality ingredients can produce delicious results.
Such is true of this 3-Ingredient Rustic Plum Tart. A touch sugar, flaky pastry, and fresh, juicy plums come together to make a rustic, yet elegant, mouthwatering treat. From start to finish, this rustic plum tart takes an hour to make!
Start by gathering a quart of ripe, beauteous plums. My BFF Angie was kind enough to bring a load of plums to soccer practice, right after she’d plucked them off the trees. Friends with farms are the best!
Roll out some really great pie dough, blanket it with succulent fruit, sprinkle a little sugar over top, and fold the dough to envelop the tasty goodness.
My 3-Ingredient Rustic Plum Tart will be golden, gorgeous, and ready to serve in about an hour. Dessert doesn’t get much sweeter than that!
Since the recipe is so easy, I decided to make two of these little tarts. You should too. The extra tart stays flaky and delicious when loosely wrapped in aluminum foil and stored in the ‘fridge. Confession: Son #1 and I had a feast of Rustic Plum Tart straight out of the refrigerator for breakfast. At least twice. I highly suggest that you do the same.
