Stone Fruit Tart Recipe

Plum Torte sprinkled with slices almonds

Makes 12 Servings

Throughout the summer and fall we get get luscious apricots, peaches, nectarines and plums from our Eastern Washington farmers. This tart can be made with any stone fruit you’d like; just make sure it’s ripe. Taking the time to arrange the fruit in a decorative pattern adds to the visually beautiful dessert. It’s also lovely with coffee in the morning, or afternoon pick-me-up.
