Plum Galette

Plum Galette
While a slice of this summer fruit tart needs no embellishment, a scoop of vanilla ice cream doesn’t hurt.Anna Kovel

The filling-to-crust ratio in this rustic tart adapted from Alice Waters's Chez Panisse Café Cookbook lets the fruit shine. The original recipe calls for a combination of plums and pluots (the sweet-tart, intensely perfumed cross between a plum and an apricot), but it's also delicious made with just one or the other.
