I bought this beautiful fruit last week at the farmer's market.
I had no idea what it was.
Quince. They're kinda like an apple, but not edible raw.
I couldn't find very many recipes for quince, but I
needed to cook 'em.
I found this super easy recipe from Ina for apple tart.
It uses puff pastry which is super fabulous when you want to make
a dessert in no time:)
Here we go:
1-sheet of thawed puff pastry
2- peeled and cored quince
2- peeled and cored apples (I used granny smith)
Roll out your thawed pastry into a square.
I rolled up my edges to make it more "rustic".
Just kidding, my square was all wonky so I had to improvise:)
Slice your peeled and cored quince and apples.
Alternate laying your slices of quince and apples. Ya know, for pretty factor:)
Ina's recipe calls for just "sprinkling" sugar on top.
Um no ma'am!! I pulled out my grinder of sugar and cinnamon!!
I'll just say I wasn't shy about coating my quince and apples
with this deliciousness!!
Dot with butter. A whole lot of butter. Because everyone knows
more butter is better:)
Stick that rustic square of loveliness in a 400' oven for about 25 minutes.
While your tart is cooling, make your glaze.
I did like 1/2 cup apricot jam and a couple Tbsp. of rum.
Just heat it through:)
Then brush that liquid gold onto your tart.
Ooooh look at that beauty!!
Cut yourself a piece and get to tastin...
I dare you to eat just one piece.
No really, I double dog dare you!!
