Nectarine Tart Recipe

Nectarine Tart Recipe. I originally posted this Nectarine Tart recipe several years ago.  To me, this is the most beautiful dessert I have ever created - and I have baked a lot of desserts in my days!  This dough is fabulous and I have used it to make pies.  It is wonderfully sweet and very easy to work with.

While all these pictures make it seem difficult, nothing could be further from the truth – this is a long process, but quite easy! Hubby and I have worked together on this, and not only survived, but had a good time making it! I hope you give this Nectarine Tart a try – you will be delighted with the result!

Nectarine Tart Recipe

There are several stages to this tart. I advise making the crust first due to refrigeration times. I would bake/roast the nectarines next as they will need to cool. While the custard does to cool, it does so rapidly. As long as you have the crust and nectarines ready, you will be golden doing the custard last.

You can use a flan tin or a quiche pan for the crust. I used a quiche pan.

Crust

1 2/3 c Flour
2/3 c Confectionery Sugar
1 Stick Cold Butter, sliced into cubes
1 Egg Yolk
1 1/2 – 2 Tbsp Cold Water

Heat oven to 325º

Nectarine Tart Recipe


Cut butter into flour and confectionery sugar mixture.
Add egg yolk.
Add water to make the dough come together.

When the dough is formed into a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

After chilling dough for 30 minutes, bring it out and roll it in between sparsely floured parchment paper. You want just enough flour to allow for rolling. This dough will warm rapidly, and become soft.

Nectarine Tart Recipe


Press dough into your tin, and trim away any excess.
Return to refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Nectarine Tart Recipe


Place parchment paper on top of uncooked crust, and place beans on to to weight the paper down and not allow for much rising. (No, there is no parchment paper in this pic, I forgot and had to go back and dump the beans and start again and neglected to snap another picture.)

Nectarine Tart Recipe


Bake uncovered for 10 minutes on 325º.
Remove paper and beans, return to oven and bake another 10 minutes or until the pastry is slightly browned.

Roast/ Bake Nectarines

8 Nectarines cut in half with the stones removed
1/4 c Orange Juice
1/2 C Firmly Packed Brown Sugar

If you have a convection oven setting, use the roast setting instead of bake.
Preheat oven to to 400º
Place nectarines in a single layer in large, shallow baking dish.
Sprinkle with OJ and brown sugar

Roast/Bake for 20 minutes until nectarines are soft.
Cool to touch.

Remove skins from nectarines.
Slice into thin slices.

Custard

1 1/4 c Whipping Cream
1 c Milk
1/2 C Caster Sugar (forget paying for this at a gourmet shop! Just put 1/2 c of regular sugar in a small food processor and whirl until fine)
1/4 tsp Vanilla
3 Egg Yolks
2 Tbsp Corn Starch
6 Tbsp Butter

Combine cream, milk and sugar in medium saucepan.
Add vanilla.
Bring to a low boil.

Nectarine Tart Recipe


Beat egg yolks in a small mixing bowl.
Add corn starch.
Gradually beat in hot cream mixture.
Return entire combined mixture to medium saucepan.

Nectarine Tart Recipe


Allow to come to a boil.
Heat until thickened.
Remove from heat and add butter.

Nectarine Tart Recipe


Cover with plastic wrap and allow to cool to room temperature.

Nectarine Tart Recipe


Assembly

Pour custard into cooled pastry shell.
Place nectarines on top of custard. You do not have to push down, they will settle into the custard. Hubby refers to the custard as the glue.

Nectarine Tart Recipe


Chill for 3 hours (or overnight) until set.

This is the final product, and wow is it tasty!

  2. Hi Ann,
    I absolutely love this recipe, I’ve made it 2x and your dough directions are spot on!! This is from a seriously dough challenged individual. Do you mind if I share your recipe with my readers?

    • Stephanie I really am crust-challenged. For all the other complex things I can make with ease, a simple crust always falls short. This crust is so simple and fail-proof, I have even used it to make apple pie!
