Enjoy the flavors of an old fashioned dessert recipe with these Rustic Plum Apple Tarts. The apple and plum flavors combined with cinnamon form one of the most heavenly dessert recipes. You won't be able to get enough of this buttery, crumb pastry crust.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable shortening
  • 4 tablespoons ice water
  • 1 egg white, room temperature
  • 3 ripe Gala apples, peeled, cored, diced
  • 3 ripe plums, peeled, pits removed, diced
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Combine butter, apples, plums, brown sugar, honey, and cinnamon in a large saucepan. Simmer over medium high heat for approximately 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place cornstarch and water in a measuring cup and whisk until well blended. Add to apple mixture and reduce heat to medium low. Continue simmering for approximately 5-10 minutes, or until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour and salt; whisk until well blended. Cut in shortening using two knives or pastry blender. Gradually add water, one tablespoon at a time, until moist crumbles form.
  4. Form pastry into a ball and cut into quarters. On a well-floured surface, roll out each quarter. Using a serrated knife, cute edges into straight lines, forming a square.
  5. Scoop small quantities of apple mixture into center of pastry square and gently fold edges over the top, allowing the center to remain uncovered.
  6. Place on cookie sheet and bake for approximately 40 minutes or until edges turn a light golden brown. Remove from oven and set on cooling rack for 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
