Cook's Notes

Note: Filling often bubbles out through small openings in the edge of the crust during baking, so don't worry if a little juice ends up on the baking sheet; line it with foil for easy cleanup.

    Made this today. Fruit was very juicy, caused the crust to fall apart when baking. Probably will taste good, but will use my pie crust recipe next time. Questioned the cornmeal. Should've paid attention to my thought on that and used my own crust recipe.

    I made this tart for a family gathering. My husband and son-in-law both raved. I enjoyed making the tart. The directions were clear, the ingredients were all on hand and the preparation very simple. My result was attractive and delicious. At the insistance of my family (especially my husband) I will be making this recipe again. It rated a 5 in our home.

    Everyone in my family loves this recipe. We have a plum tree and my daughters look forward to ripe fruit just so I will make this tart! If you have trouble finding fine corn meal, put regular corn meal in your food processor. It works really well! We serve it with homemade vanilla ice cream. Yum!

    I love this recipe so much, that when I couldn't find it, I went looking for it on the internet. I'm sure there are other plum tart recipes out there, but this is the one my daughter requested for her birthday. Really good!

    Really good. I used whatever plums I had on hand from the Farmer's Market that morning. I will try to find fine ground corn meal, the medium I had was a bit gravely. Still, very good and plan to make this again.

    The best rustic tart ever.....crust is perfect....easy to roll out [I rolled on parchment, directly over a 14" pizza sheet] and used a small Italian wooden pizza rolling pin. The crust doesn't get soggy either. I used 4 black plums/4 nectarines........so simple/so perfect! BTW, mmsrjs....rustic just means not formed in a particular manner, as in a pie tin or tart pan ---- it's just free form!
