A nice dessert to share at a gathering. You can use any fruits that are in season at the moment. I chose nectarines are they are plentiful right now.
- 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed (1 stick, 4 oz)
- 3-6 tbsp cold water
- 2 nectarines
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp room temperature butter
- Mix the flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl, then use your fingers or a pastry cutter to crumble the butter into the flour. Once the butter is in small crumbs, add in the cold water a tablespoon at a time until a tough dough ball forms.
- Turn the dough onto a work surface and knead it for a minute then form it into a disk making sure not to over knead. Place the dough into the fridge to chill while you make the filling.
- Preheat the oven to 425 F or 215 C
- Pit the nectarines then slice them into 0.5 cm slices. Toss the sliced nectarines, sugar, and flour in a large bowl, making sure the nectarine slices are well coated.
- Take the dough out of the fridge and roll it out into a large circle 25 mm thick making sure to sprinkle some flour on your workspace in order to prevent sticking. One in a circle, transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- In the center of the dough, line up the nectarine slices in a circle leaving a 6 cm ring on the outside empty. Place dots of butter on top of the nectarine slices then fold the empty edge up on top of the nectarines.
- Beat the egg well and brush it onto the dough that you just folded up so that it can brown in the oven then place the tray into the oven and bake for 20 mins.
- Once out of the oven, let it cool down a bit before serving. It can be enjoyed on its own or even with some ice cream.
