Although I love plums, I don't seem to include them in much of my baking, so this recipe was a treat, both in the making the recipe & the tasting of tart itself! We both loved the combo of plum & almond, & I look forward to making it to share with others the next time around! Obviously, it's a keeper! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
