Delicious mini maple plum tarts that are super simple to make together with your mini chef. A fun activity to include and educate your kid in the kitchen. Delicious for breakfast, dessert, or as a sweet treat for the in between, you can easily use other fruits instead of plums – peaches, nectarines, figs, apples, pears, or berries would be delicious alternatives!
How to prepare the mini maple plum tarts
flour of choice
¼ tsp salt
125g half-fat quark
½ tbsp water
½ tbsp white wine vinegar
3 tbsp ground hazelnuts
50g butter, cold, cut into pieces
2 tbsp happy maple syrup, goût robuste
icing sugar to dust
optional: vanilla ice cream
Mix the flour and salt in a bowl.
Add the quark, water and vinegar, and mix quickly to create a soft dough – do not knead.
Divide the dough into 4 portions, on a surface lightly dusted with flour shape into rolls each approx. 18 cm diameter and transfer to two oven trays lined with baking paper.
Cut the plums into wedges and add the happy maple syrup to give a nice caramel flavour.
Sprinkle the nuts on the middle of the dough rounds.
Spread the plums on top, leaving a border of approx. 4 cm.
Distribute butter and a sip of happy maple syrup on them.
Turn the edge of the dough in on the plums.
Bake approx. 20 mins. in an oven preheated to 200°C (convection).
Remove from the oven, transfer to a cooling rack with the baking paper and leave to cool.
Dust the tarts with icing sugar and enjoy!
Tip: It's delicious when served with vanilla ice cream ☺️
