Autumn is Prime Pie-Baking Time

originally posted at ChefsLine 11 Sep 2008

Summer fruits with a long season, like apples and peaches, and other fruits that ripen in autumn, like many plums and pears, are among the most excellent fruits for making fillings for pies and tarts. Autumn is the harvest season, and these and other fruit, especially stone fruit, are the first to fill the proverbial cornucopia, and are in fact falling off the trees this time of year.

Plum Tart

Enjoy this recipe for Blueberry Plum Tartlets. It calls for a traditional pie crust, but you may also substitute this Almond Shortbread Crust recipe for an even more elegant treat. And consider making this Bourbon Whipped Cream as an accompaniment.
