Rating: (1 rated)
  • 1 piece flaky shortcrust pastry (see recipe)
  • 4 oz (115 g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1/3 cup (70 g) sugar
  • 2 plums, pitted and thinly sliced
  • Preparation
  • With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a 12-inch (30 cm) square with a thickness of 1/8 inch (3 mm). Place the dough on a sheet of parchment paper.
  • Using a knife, cut horizontal strips 3 1/2 inches (9 cm) long, at 1/2-inch (1.5 cm) intervals all along the two opposite sides (left and right) of the dough. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, egg yolk and 2 tbsp of the sugar until smooth. Spread over the centre of the dough.
  • In another bowl, toss the plums with 1 tbsp of the sugar. Place evenly over the cream cheese.
  • Fold the strips over the filling, alternating left and right and overlapping to create a braid. Using a sliding motion, gently transfer the tart and parchment paper to a baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg white with 1 tbsp of the sugar. Brush over the tart. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving
