Chef Nannette Conners shares what lies within her pastry’s nooks and crannies.

Flaky Crust
The from-scratch crust is a simple recipe: butter, flour, a little sugar, and a bit of water. It gets an egg wash and is sprinkled with sugar before baking to ensure a golden color.

The Best Part…
The streusel topping consists of flour, sugar, cinnamon, and butter—the same ingredients in Conners’ coffee-cake topping.

Seasonal Fruit
During the fall/winter, it’s apples (Golden Delicious—not too tart, so only a minimal amount of added sugar is needed) and cranberries; in the hotter months, it’s peaches and blueberries instead.

Serving Suggestion
“The rustic fruit tart is not overly sweet, so it can be served for breakfast, but I think it tastes good any time of day,” says Conners. “If you do serve it in the afternoon or evening, vanilla ice cream is great with it.”
