An 8"x10.5" rectangular glass baking dish cooked the tart in 65 minutes. I didn't have an issue with a mushy middle, but the five large nectarines weren't juicy. It wasn't sweet (even after sprinkling extra sugar on top before cooking). We served this cooled, topped with vanilla bean ice cream and drizzled with honey. I agree with a previous reviewer. This has more of a cake texture.
This is very similar to a plum torte that I make all the time. This has a bit less sugar and no cinnamon. I did like it with the nectarines as I have never thought of using those before in the other. This is not sweet and the crust is kinda "cookieish" Today I cut up peaches, plums and nectarines - put the dough in individual containers (for1-2) and let the kids choose their own fruit. Everyone was happy! Thanks
I followed this recipe exactly, and while my husband thought it was great (thus the 4 stars) I thought it was a mad mushy mess in the center. Maybe this was becasue my nectarines were very juicy? I cooked it for 60 minutes and while the outer crust and bottoms were done nicely the whole center was soup! Maybe I'll try it again using less ripe fruit and see if that changes anything...
Tried this and it turned out great! I added blueberries in with the nectarines which worked out just fine. I did have to cover the outer edge of the crust with some foil towards the very end - just to keep it from getting to brown. I took one of the reviewers advice and sprinkled raw sugar on before baking. I also drizzled honey lightly over the top after removing from the oven.
This is a very good, simple recipe. I used fresh white nectarines and it is really yummy. I agree it's more like a cake than a tart...especially since I had to use a bit smaller pan (8"). Perfect warm with a scoop of french vanilla ice cream. Soft in the center (probably because my fruit was so juicy) and crunchy outside. Delicious! Thanks.
Great recipe - very easy to prepare. I used a 10" glass pie plate and top was well-browned in 50 min. and done. Dough covers fruit perfectly - I used 4-5 nectarines and sprinkled a couple packets of raw sugar on fruit just before baking. This is comes out like a coffee cake/shortcake as the previous reviewer stated.
this was a great recipe! I hadn't ever tried cooking with nectarines before but this recipe was easy and tasty. I think I was expecting a denser more pie-like crust, and this was more like a cross between a coffee cake or shortcake, but it was delicious! I baked mine for 50 minutes and was afraid it was overdone since it got kind of dark, but the butter and sugar in it make a very nice crunch. I bet it would be yummy to bake the crust and put fresh fruit in it too. Ours tasted extra good with vanilla ice cream. Thanks so much for posting!!
