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.

Directions

"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."

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