These citrusy persimmon tarts are lightly flavored with vanilla and topped with fresh blueberries and sliced kumquats for an attractive fruit tart that can be the centerpiece of any table. Hazelnuts can be substitute for the almonds.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 persimmons (ripe)
  • 1 handful raw almonds (coarsely chopped)
  • 1 coffee (spoon of ground vanilla)
  • 1 handful blueberries
  • kumquats (some)

Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix the flour and salt. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer.
  3. Add the egg yolks, whisk them until the dough becomes smooth.
  4. Using a wooden spoon, incorporate the dry ingredients-the result will be grainy.
  5. With your fingertips press the dough into small individual pie molds.
  6. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes, until the pastry is golden. Let it cool down.
  7. Mix the mashed persimmons and ground vanilla.
  8. Finely chop the almonds and add them to the mixture.
  9. Place the puree in the pies and garnish with fruit.

These little bites are perfect for a cheery appetizer. Hazelnuts can replace the almonds if needed. I arrange these on tiered platters and use them as centerpieces set at intervals on my luncheon tables.
