This month is going to be a fruity month for Baking Chez Moi. I had already purchased my peaches for our Brown Butter Peach Tourte when I found these Italian plums. I am not familiar with Italian plums so I did a little research and found they are also called Empress or prune plums. My local grocery store had a new shipment of Empress plums so I changed my dessert tout sweet.
It is a simple tart. Ingredients are just crumbs, in my case graham cracker crumbs, plums, and cinnamon and sugar. An hour later and you have a golden tart.
You really need to be a plum lover to enjoy this dessert. I served mine with whipped cream. I liked it but my family is not crazy about plums so the rest of my tart went to work with me where I shared it.
