persimmon and almond butter tart

persimmon and almond butter tart

it is currently persimmon season in queensland australia and each week i'm at the markets i have to buy some because they are so beautiful. persimmons to me taste as if a tomato, date and a pear had a baby. i decided to make this quick little tart with fresh persimmons, some puff pastry i had in the freezer, freshly ground almond butter i get from the source bulk foods and a sprinkle of cinnamon. it's was so delicious and simple. you could also make this with any other seasonal fruits such as apples, pears, plums, figs <3

INGREDIENTS (2-4 serves)

  • 2-3 fresh persimmons finely cut
  • 1/4 cup 100% natural almond butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 sheet of good quality puff pastry
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tbs apricot jam
  • crème fraiche to serve

METHOD

1 /   preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius. take pastry sheet out to thaw according the packet instructions (usually takes about 10-15 minutes)

2 /   once thawed, roll pastry out over nonstick baking paper. spread almond butter and cinnamon leaving about 1-2 cm border around the edge. then layer persimmon pieces over almond butter. sprinkle with sugar and add little dollops of butter over the top. brush beaten egg on the edge of the pastry and put in the oven for about 20-30 minutes until golden.

3 /   then heat up apricot jam and 1-2 tbs of water in a saucepan to thin it out and brush over the persimmon for a sweet glossy finish

serve with crème fraiche and a little sprinkle of cinnamon :)
