Plum Tart Recipe

Publisher Photo
We have a plum tree in our yard, and some years it's so full of fruit that its branches have to be propped up. I always make one or two tarts to freeze for later.

I've never made a plum tart before but this one tastes really good! Maybe next time I'll try adding apricot preserves in it, like I do with my apple pie.

Just wondered have you ever tried this with apples? Or peaches?

Do you bake the tarts and then freeze, or freeze and bake later?
