We still have time to enjoy summer fruits! Go to your local market and get some nectarines! Today we will bake a nectarine and almond tart. Such a delight!!
This is recipe is great because you can adapt it with a large variety of fruits: apricots, peaches, yellow plums, well actually any kind of plums, …
The idea is rather simple: a good homemade schortcrust pastry (a shortbread one will be delicous too), an almond powder mixture to cover the pastry and beautiful fresh fruits.
No need to make a long speech. Let’s do this, right now!
