I went to a pastry class this weekend. (That's the subject of ANOTHER blog post!) And I realized that I want to learn how to make my own fabulous puff pastry dough. I'm certain it will rock my world. But right now my present world needs speed. Yours may be require a similar set of standards. And lucky for you, I have something that is FAST and GORGEOUS at the same time.
Just a quick toss in sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice and vanilla and then artfully arranged on squares of puff pastry rolled out from a sheet of Pepperidge Farms ready made puff pastry sets amazingness in motion.
RECIPE: Quick Black Plum Puff Pastry with Honey and Sea Salt
Inspired by a recipe from Epicurious / Makes 8 Tarts / Click here for Printable Version
3 ripe black plums cut into crescent shapes about 1/8 inch width or less
2 T sugar
½ t cinnamon
½ t fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 sheet from a Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry package, thawed
Honey and sea salt for drizzle
4 ounces plain Greek yogurt
1 T confectioner’s sugar
Toss sliced plums with the sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and lemon juice. Let sit for about 30 minutes. Mix the yogurt with the confectioner’s sugar and set aside.
Follow package directions for puff pastry, thawing and rolling out while still cold. Cut into eight 4 inch squares. Top with the plums, about 6 each, arranging in center. Cook on a baking sheet in a 400 degree F oven for about 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Let cool slightly. You can use your own puff pastry! This is the QUICK way!
To plate, put a skid of yogurt on each plate, top with the tart and drizzle generously with honey. Sprinkle with kosher sea salt and serve.
