200g flour

1/3 cup caster sugar

1 small tsp cinnamon

135g cold butter

100g Tatua Crème Fraîche

1 egg yolk

3 fresh peaches

3 fresh nectarines

2 tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 Tbsp corn flour

Handful of fresh raspberries

Egg wash – 1 egg yolk + 1 Tbsp of milk mixed together

Cinnamon sugar – 2 Tbsp caster sugar + ½ tsp cinnamon

1 cup Tatua Crème Fraîche, honey and pistachios to serve

Method

  1. In food processor combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and butter and pulse until the mixture resembles fine crumbs, add Crème Fraîche and egg yolk, whizz until combined and starting to form a ball.
  2. Transfer to a clean surface dusted with extra flour and knead for a few seconds to make a smooth ball. Wrap in cling film and chill for 20-30 minutes. 
  3. Slice stone fruits and toss together with honey, vanilla and corn flour.
  4. Pre-heat oven to 190°C.
  5. Roll out chilled pastry between two sheets of baking paper until about 26cm in diameter   and 3-4mm thick, carefully layer the pastry over a 23cm loose bottom tart tin or similar but don’t push down the edges.
  6. Arrange the marinated stone fruits in the base of the pastry, dot with the raspberries and then carefully fold and gather the sides in towards the middle but not covering the top. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before carefully pushing up the centre to remove the rustic tart from the tin.
  8. Garnish the tart with a swirl of Crème Fraîche and drizzle with honey, sprinkle with pistachios if desired.
