I love the fruits of summer, the peaches, plums, and my favorite of all – the nectarines. My Nectarine-Custard Tart combines two delicious pies into one great dessert. Rather than serve a straightforward nectarine pie or tart, I’ve added a custard that’s reminiscent of my Grandmother’s Cream and Sugar Pie.
A simple crumb crust is combined in the food processor, then is patted and formed in a 9-inch springform pan. Peeled, pitted and halved nectarines are layered over the crust, and are topped with a simple custard of eggs, whipping cream, sugar and cinnamon. Feel free to substitute your favorite summer fruits, or try the tart with pears or apples this fall.
