Making a rustic fruit tart is a simple way to bring the flavors of summer to your table. I usually make one when we have fruit that’s overripe to bite into. Frozen pie crust is always in my freezer so I can throw together a pie or tart when the fruit is ripe, or make samosas.
This recipe is so simple. I don’t really have a recipe It is something I just throw together without much thought. And sometimes, it works out and sometimes it doesn’t. I’ve used apples, peaches, and nectarines in my rustic fruit tarts. I’m not going to bother creating a recipe card because it is such free wheeling process.
All you need is some fruit, sugar, a little flour, maybe some lemon juice, and pie crust.
- Slice or chuck the fruit. You can add blueberries or raspberries into the fruit like apples, peaches or nectarines as well depending on what you have on hand.
- Dump in bowl.
- Add sugar to taste, some lemon juice, and a touch of flour to thicken the mix while baking mixing well.
- Arrange… ok dump… the mixture on the pie crust and fold up the crust.
- If you want some browning then do an egg wash.
- Bake in a pre-heated 375 oven for about 30-45 minutes. Checking on it when you get to the 30 minute mark.
- Let cool a little then devour.
Be creative with your fruit tart. And enjoy!
