    pleiad7's Note:

    This is considered to be THE German fruit tart. Traditionally this is baked on yeast pastry, but the sweet German pastry is also a perfect base. It must be made with cold butter and the dough chilled before using, otherwise there is a tendency to add additional flour, which is a mistake. The crust rises up between the fruits and the delicious juices are absorbed into the pastry.

      This brings back childhood memories :) I made this with gluten free flour and margarine to be dairy free, and it worked like a spell. Love this kind of plum tart!!<br/>Thanks for sharing.<br/>Made for PAC Spring 2014

      I just made this with plums picked from our tree just hours earlier. It was very nice, shame I didn't think to take a photo - I will next time, as I will definitely be making this again! Thank you, it was just like the ones we used to buy from bakeries in Switzerland
