Directions

Variations

Peach or Nectarine: For fruit mixture, stir together 1 pound peaches or nectarines (about 4), cut into 1/2-inch wedges (2 3/4 cups); 1/4 cup sugar; 2 tablespoons flour; 2 teaspoons lemon juice; and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Plum-Blueberry: For fruit mixture, stir together 12 ounces plums, cut into 1/2 inch wedges (1 3/4 cups); 4 ounces (3/4 cup) blueberries; 1/2 cup sugar; 3 tablespoons flour; 2 teaspoons lemon juice; and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Mixed Berry: For frangipane, replace hazelnuts with almonds, and hazelnut liqueur with rum. For fruit mixture, stir together 12 ounces (2 1/2 cups) berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or a mix), 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Cherry: For frangipane, replace hazelnuts with almonds, and hazelnut liqueur with rum. For fruit mixture, stir together 1 pound fresh or thawed frozen sour cherries, pitted (2 3/4 cups); 1/2 cup sugar; 2 tablespoons flour; 1 teaspoon lemon juice; and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Cook's Notes

To add a subtle nuttiness to the pate brisee dough that pairs well with peaches and apricots, replace 1/2 cup of the flour in the crust with buckwheat flour. Or if pairing with apricots or plums, try replacing 1/2 cup of the flour with 3/4 cup toasted ground hazelnuts. The extra disk of dough can be frozen, wrapped in plastic, for up to 1 month.

Toss the fruits and sugar together at the last minute -- if you let them macerate too long, the juices will overflow onto the pan and burn.

    I've always admired Matha for her excellence in everthing!! I see so many recipes - like this one - the only problem is that I can't print it to be able to try making it at home. What can I do?
