Rustic Tarts

Ingredients

1 Package Refrigerated Pie Crusts (2 crusts per package)
1 Cup Plain Breadcrumbs
6 Diamond Bright Nectarines
1½ Sticks Kings Organic Butter, divided
½ Cup Sugar
¼ Cup Brown Sugar (Packed)
2 Tablespoons Flour
¼ Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1 Lemon
½ Cup Apricot Jelly
Vanilla Ice Cream

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400 Degrees.

1. Peel and pit the Diamond Bright nectarines then cut them into even slices.  Place them in a large mixing bowl and coat them with the juice of 1 lemon.
2. Combine the sugars, flour, salt and cinnamon.  Sprinkle this mixture over the nectarines and toss to combine.
3. Unwrap the pie crusts.  Place them on a lightly floured surface, one at a time, and gently roll each one to extend it about a half-inch all around.
4. Place each crust on a parchment-lined pan.  Brush each crust with 2 tablespoons soft butter, leaving about 1 inch all around with no butter.
5. Sprinkle ½-cup bread crumbs evenly over the butter on each crust.  Divide the nectarines between the two tarts.  Dot the nectarines on each tart with ½-cup butter.
6. Fold the edges of the pastry over the edge of the nectarine slices, crimping the excess pastry to form a rustic tart shape.
7. Bake until the nectarines are tender and the crust is brown 30-40 minutes.
8. Remove from the oven.  Melt the jelly and brush it over the nectarines.
9. Serve warm or at room temperature with a scoop of ice cream.
