If you never had the delicious and beautiful green plums (aka Reine Claude Prunes) before, you better seek this immediately at your local market.
1 recipe for sweet pastry dough, keep cold in the refrigerator
10 green plums, slice into pieces
½ cup to ¾ cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
a few blueberry, just for color (optional)
- Roll out the pastry dough to fit an 11 inches tart pan. Transfer the dough onto the pan-trim the excess. Place the pan in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 375⁰F
- Whisk the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer bowl until thick and pale. Add a pinch of salt to the egg mixture, mix gently. Pour the mixture directly into the tart shell. Arrange the plum slices neatly, living a little gap in between. If using blueberry, scatter them here and there. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the top starting to form a beautiful crust. Cool completely before serving.
