I love elaborate pies as much as the next gal, but sometimes I just don’t have the time or the patience. This tart is here to save us all from slaving away in the kitchens, and it’s even pretty enough to impress dinner guests.

Hoping to use a fruit other than nectarines? Other stone fruit such as peaches, plums, or apricots would also be fabulous, and so would apples or pears come fall.

Just don’t forget the whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!

Tip: Choosing the right store-bought puff pastry

There are two main brands of store-bought puff pastry available in the United States: DuFour and Pepperidge Farm. DuFour can typically be found in specialty food stores for more than double the cost of Pepperidge Farm. However, DuFour is made with all butter and has slightly better flavor and texture. Pepperidge Farm is made with shortening, but is significantly cheaper and available at practically any grocery store.

(I used Pepperidge Farm for this recipe as that is all that is available to me locally, and it worked out great.)
