Crescent Plum Tart Recipe

Author: Petro


  • about 3 cups plums if using frozen, thaw and strain the juice before using; save the juice though, in case your plums won't leave enough syrup during baking
  • 1 crescent dough
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 4 oz crushed walnuts
  • a little flour for rolling
  • optional - if your plums are not sweet enough mix them up with about 1/2 cup sugar

You will also need:

  • baking paper
  • rolling pin
  • baking dish


  • Pre heat the oven at 395 F = 200 C.
  • Mix sugar, cinnamon and walnuts together.
  • Lightly roll out the crescent dough on a piece of baking paper larger than the final size of the dough. Lightly flour the dough to make rolling easier.
  • Optional - if you want a "prettier" looking tart, cut the dough in a round shape.
  • Grab the baking paper from the sides and transfer dough to the baking dish, leaving a border.
  • Spread plums inside the dough.
  • Sprinkle the sugar mixture.
  • Fold in the edges of dough to cover outer rim of plums, pleating dough as necessary.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes or until the tart gets a golden color.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the baking dish.
  • Cut into squares or slices and serve simple, with whipped cream or sour cream.
