Rustic Nectarine Tart

Late summer is nectarine time of year!
 I've been munching on these beauties for breakfast
ever since I brought them home from the farmers market.

This afternoon I decided to use up the rest in a rustic tart.

Rustic Nectarine Tart

Make dough for one crust pie. 
You may use any pie crust recipe you like. (My crust recipe can be found here.)
Roll out onto floured surface and transfer to ungreased baking sheet. 

Slice 5 or 6 nectarines and any additional fruit into a bowl  (I added blueberries today.) 
Add some lemon zest and the juice from 1/2 of a lemon.  
Add approximately 1/2 cup of sugar.
Sprinkle in a wee bit of cornstarch to help thicken the juices as it bakes.
Give it a stir.

Pour fruit filling into the center of crust and turn up the edges.
Bake in 425 oven for about 35 minutes. 

My crust cracked a bit and some of the juice oozed out onto the pan as it was baking.
What a lovely mess that was. 
But it tasted oh so yummy!
Who wants a slice?  I've got ice-cream in the freezer to go with it.


  1. That looks delicious! And the nectarines are such a lovely colour.

  2. Now that's my kind of dessert! I'll bet it was great-enjoy:@)

  3. Sounds and looks dee -liscious . . .i just might beable to make this recipe. I'll let you know . . . I love nectarines. Peaches not as much. Too much work to get the fuzz off.

  4. Yum! And I like your milk glass compote too!

  5. Hey Gayle, I love the Summer stone fruit and peaches and nectarines eaten straight from the tree, warmed by the sun are absolutely delish...
    Your tart looks scrummy and I bet it didn't last long...

  10. I love collecting yummy looking recipes, thanks for sharing! The photos are lovely, too!

  11. That looks so yummy. I've gotta try that recipe-I love nectarines.

  12. Your tart looks so good. I love the rustic country kitchen look that it has. I have been baking my pies in iron skillets instead of pie pans. Just because I think they look so pretty when you serve them that way.
    Have a great day, Connie :)

  13. I cannot eat fruit raw unfortunately due to allergies but would love a piece of pie.
    When fruit is cooked, I can then eat it. Ice cream to top it sounds perfect.
