RECIPE: Plum Tarts with Honey & Black Pepper

Difficulty Level: Easy

 Servings: 6

 Time: 10 minutes active, 40 minutes total


 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed according to package directions

 1 pound plums, apricots or peaches (or a combination), pitted and cut into 1/2-inch wedges

 1/4 cup sugar

 Freshly ground black pepper

 Flaky sea salt


 1. Preheat oven to 425°. Cut pastry into 6 four-inch squares. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and prick all over with a fork (to keep from puffing up during baking).

 2. Top with fruit wedges, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle with sugar; season with a few grinds of pepper.

 3. Bake tarts, rotating pan halfway through until edges of pastry are puffed and golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with salt just before serving.

 *Tarts can be baked 4 hours ahead. Keep at room temperature.
