Aprium-Pistachio Galette


In keeping with my previous post's theme of produce I discovered in California, apriums (approx. 75% apricot, 25% plum) and pluots (approx. 75% plum, 25% apricots) still wow me when I visit the farmers' market. As if regular old plums and apricots weren't tasty enough. The stand where I bought my apriums was giving away whole fruits as samples--the farmer was beaming with pride over his crop.

Click here for the recipe--perfect for homemade crust-a-phobes like myself. I subbed apriums for the apricots, pistachios for the almonds, skipped cutting the crust in a circle, and when it came out of the oven, I brushed the tart with last summer's homemade plum jam. Hat tip to Tokyo Astro Girl for pointing me in the direction of this dessert.

Someone asked me at work just last night if I've ever heard of pluots - only in the blogosphere, I told them! I really like the cute names of "married" fruits, very Seuss-like!

What a pretty dessert! I'm a crust-a-phobe, too, but I recently tackled pie crust. Not too bad!

Hey Abby--Good for you for tackling pie crust phobia. I try occasionally--I think it's my husband's grandma's perfectly flaky (lard!) crust that intimidates me.

If I'd been around, you'd have had a hard time taking a photo. I'd be gnawing on the other end of the tart!

This is something really good to be prepared at home, because I use to buy them so now I'll do something different to surprise my family.m10m

all the recipe is so good, and the pictures with the final result look so delicious, I prepared something like this but with apples.
