"French Persimmon Tart"

So here’s my first attempt at making persimmon puff pastry tart. It turned out to be so simple and delicious. I  was surprised how tasty cooked persimmons turned out. All you need is a tiny bit of sugar  and butter, and ta-da - a sweet, rather creamy tart. No need to even peel the fruit. This tart has a lovely airy buttery crust and the ripe persimmons are currently in season so it was a great way to enjoy them. You can enjoy this persimmon tart–alone, with whipped cream, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

1/6 Quick Pastry Puff Dough recipe
2-3 ripe persimmons  thinly sliced
1/4 cup sugar
1 oz butter

2 tbs apricot jam
1 tbs peach brandy

Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Slice thinly persimmons. 
Roll puff pastry into a large rectangle. Cut the edges to make em straight.    
Fold in a thin piece to make a little crust crust. Start arranging persimmons from top corner. 
Sprinkle sugar on the top. 
Cut butter into small pieces and add on top. Bake on 400 F for 10 - 20 min depending on your oven.  
To make glaze melt apricot preserve. 
 Add peach brandy.
Strain it. 
Brush the top of the tart. 


  1. That looks awesome!!! I wonder what it would taste like with apples?

    1. Thanks, Lana:))) I made it with pears, it was really yummy. Apples should taste yummy too:)))

  2. Hi there! quick question do you think I could could puff pastry for this? or would it grow too much

    1. If you use store bought dough, you will need to roll it a little thinner. I hope this answered your question.

  3. You mention spices in the opening paragraph but none are listed in the ingredients. Did you use cinnamon or nutmeg?
    Thanks, sounds delicious!

    1. I skipped on spices, but you can any cinnamon or nutmeg :)
