This casual tart is very easy to prepare, and it looks and tastes just as sophisticated as one from a fancy bakery.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place folded pastry on a lightly floured work surface; roll out to a 12-by-14-inch rectangle. Trim edges to make even.

  • Place pastry on a parchment-lined baking sheet. With a sharp paring knife, lightly score dough to form a 1-inch border. Using a fork, prick dough inside the border every 1/2 inch. Sprinkle the border with 2 teaspoons sugar. Refrigerate until slightly firm, about 10 minutes (or up to 1 day, covered with plastic wrap).

  • Bake chilled dough until puffed and golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, gently toss sliced nectarines with 1 tablespoon flour, remaining 1/3 cup sugar, and salt.

  • With a fork, press dough inside border to make level; arrange nectarines in rows on top (or pile nectarines on top and then spread evenly).

  • Bake, loosely tented with foil, until nectarines have softened, about 10 minutes.

  • Brush nectarines with warm jelly. Let cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes. To serve, cut into 8 pieces.
