Tarte aux prunes

It's that time of the year again where I run from fair to fair, where I spend more time on trains and planes than in the kitchen.
Instead for harvesting and eating all the delicious vegetables from the garden we end up going to our local pizza place ( could also be that we had about enough of these courgettes ;-) ).
At least the prunes were more or less waiting for my return from New York. And I think these 10 hot days really helped to get them perfectly sweet.
The tree stands on a small allotment bit that we took over last summer and hasn't produced fruits for several years. But thanks to Cornelia's perfect pruning, this year it full of fruits.

Last weekend was harvest day.

Kevin has done some lovely chutney which he will hopefully post soon. Other wise the classic "Tarte aux prunes" is always a favorite.
As a dessert with whipped cream or a light lunch with nice bread and lot's of cheese.

You'll need:

  • puffpastry
  • prunes
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • a dash of fresh lemon

Halfe the prunes and lay them on the puffpastry ( don't forget to make some holes into the dough). Bake for 30 min on 200° take out. While still hot sprinkle over some sugar and a dash of fresh lemon.
