This tart is simply beautiful! This recipe tells you how to peel the skin off the nectarines, slice in half and arrange in an unbaked pastry case. Then all you have to do is combine cream, sugar, cinnamon, flour and almond extract and pour it over and around the nectarines. Bake in a very hot oven for 40 minutes.
Deeeelicious! I followed another reviewer's advice and added more spices: 1/8 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp nutmeg and doubled the cinnamon. I also added a crumble topping of 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and cut in enough butter to make it moist and crumbly (I think up to a 1/4 cup). Sprinkle it on top and pop it in the oven. Baking time and temp stay the same. YUM! - 13 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yum! Here is a hint to help get the skins off easier. Before you put the fruits in the boiling water cut a small X in the bottom with a pairing knife then after blanching them in the boiling water and cooling them you can just peel them like a banana. - 16 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've made this pie two times now. The first time I made it I took the skins off the nectarines. Second time I didn't bother to do that. We liked the pie better with the skins on and it was less work! It was a real hit. Absolutely delicious. - 20 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
