Nectarine Tarte Tatin

This delicious treat was made by myself and baker birthday girl extraordinaire Becca!

This was the end to our fabulous dinner on Saturday! I have neither made nor tasted a tarte tatin and I was very pleased! Be sure to make this with very ripe nectarines!

The recipe is quite simple actually, especially with pillsbury pie dough!


7 medium nectarines
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons butter
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough (such as Pillsbury)

1) Preheat oven to 425°.
2) Cut 1 nectarine in half. Quarter one nectarine half and the remaining 6 nectarines.
3) Combine sugar, water, and juice in a 12-inch stainless-steel skillet. Cook for 2 minutes or until sugar is golden (do not stir). Remove from heat; stir in butter and vanilla. Let stand 3 minutes.
4) Place nectarine half, cut side down, in center of sugar mixture; arrange nectarine quarters, cut side down, around center. Return pan to medium heat. Cook for 10 minutes or until sugar mixture is bubbly (do not stir). Remove from heat; let stand 3 minutes.
5) Roll pie dough into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place dough over nectarine mixture, fitting dough between nectarines and skillet.
6) Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven, and cool for 10 minutes. Carefully invert tart onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges.

  1. This would probably work with peaches, too. The next time I do the farmers’ market I’ll have to get some.

    In fact, I could head to the one under the 83 right now if I hurry. Naah, I have too much stuff in my fridge as it is.

Leave me something sweet!
