Recipe: Nectarine tartlets

With the Spring in full swing, it’s lovely to eat a fruity cake. Here’s a Vegetarian recipe for Nectarine tartlets that mums and dads can make with their children. It takes 15 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes to cook. This recipe is for 6 servings. 

Ingredients:

  • 125g plain flour
  • 75g butter
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Nectarine peaches 
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • Icing sugar to serve

Method:

  1. Cut the Nectarine in slices into small cubes and put in a saucepan with the lemon zest and a tbsp of sugar. Cook over medium heat until it turns into a jam-like texture. Set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180oC. In a bowl or food processor, mix the flour, remaining sugar, butter and vanilla extract into a soft dough. Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Place the dough on to a floured work surface and flatten with your hands. Cut into 12 equal size balls, place on a baking sheet covered with greaseproof paper and press your thumb in the centre of each to make a hollow. Bake at 180oC for around 8 minutes or until they start to become golden at the base. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  4. Once the cookies are room temperature, add the peach jam into a piping bag into the centre. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
