rustic plum tarte.

fresh plums from the garden! 
a wonderful, unfortunately short-lived treat. 
a little tangy, but sweet. 
the crisp skin breaks with a bite and juice comes squirting out. 
and the color. 
blue. purple. inside green.

i wanted to back something that didn't take away from the taste too much.
so i decided an open pie would be the way to go. 
grab your favorite pâte brisée recipe, add some sugar, flour and a pinch of cinnamon to the fruit et voilà!


i used some cornflour in the dough to add to texture. 
before baking i eggwashed the dough and sprinkled it with dark brown sugar (cristal).
