Peach and Plum Tart

Plums and peaches... a lovely combination.
Low in fat, this healthy and delicious
Fall dessert will surely 
please your family and guests.

Ready for the oven

For the crust:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp almond extract or
vanilla extract 

3-5 ripe peaches sliced 
4 plums chopped up.
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2tbsp flour
2 tbsp melted butter

Heat oven to 425 deg. F
In a small bowl whisk together 
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar

In a measuring cup whisk together
the oils, milk and almond extract

Pour the mixture in the flour mixture
and mix together with a fork 
just enough to dampen it.
Transfer the dough to a 11 inch tart pan
or a pie plate.
Use your fingers to push the dough
covering the sides and bottom of the pan.

Slice the  peaches and chop up the plums
Toss plums in a bowl with the
1/2 cup sugar and 1 tbsp flour 

Starting on the outside,
 arrange the peaches overlapping 
in a circle over the pastry.
Fill the centre with the plums.

Melt 2 tbsp of butter and dribble over the fruit.

Bake 35-45 minutes.
Chill in fridge a few hrs. before serving.
This will thicken the fruit
and make it easer to serve.

(I forgot to take a pic of the cooked tart.)
Fun to make and so pretty and elegant.

Top with whipped cream or ice-cream.
