FRUIT TARTE TARTIN IN CAST IRON
- whole pears, apples, peaches, or plums washed, peeled, cored, cut into halves or quarters
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon frambroise or other fruit liquor or vanilla, optional
- Add a pinch of salt to fruit before topping with crust
- 1 pie crust (see recipe)
Prepare pie crust dough. Let rest while preparing the fruit.
Place the butter and sugar into cast iron pan. Add flavoring of choice if using. On medium heat melt and slightly brown butter with sugar. Place prepared fruit on top and cook for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and place rolled crust on top, tucking in the over flow closely to edge of fruit inside pan. Bake in preheated oven (450F) until pie crust is golden and fruit is bubbling. Cool 10 minutes before turning out onto platter or cutting board. Cut into pie wedges and serve while warm with ice cream or whipped crème fraiche.
