Sunset NOVEMBER 2003

  • Yield: Makes 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 frozen puff pastry shells, thawed
  • 2 firm Fuyu persimmons (5 oz. each) or 1 Fuji apple (8 oz.)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh or frozen cranberries, rinsed
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons currant jelly
  • Crème fraîche or lightly sweetened softly whipped cream

Preparation

1. On a lightly floured board, roll each pastry shell into a 5- to 6-inch round. Set rounds about 2 inches apart on a 12- by 15-inch baking sheet.

2. Peel persimmons or apple; quarter lengthwise, core, and slice 1/4 inch thick. Overlap slices attractively on pastries. Sprinkle half the cranberries and sugar evenly over each tart.

3. Bake in a 400° regular or convection oven until richly browned, 20 to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, place jelly in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in a microwave oven on full power (100%) just until melted, 20 to 30 seconds. Brush jelly over hot tarts. Transfer tarts to racks. Serve warm or cool, topped with a dollop of crème fraîche.
