Quince Tart

  • Difficulty: Medium
  • 45 minutes
  • 6 servings

Let’s use quinces instead of apples for this tart. Of course, we’re going to tame a little the tartness of the quince wedges by cooking them in a vanilla-flavored sugary liquid. Then off with the quince-filled puff pastry into the oven for the next 20 minutes.

Ingredients Needed for Quince Tart

    1 cup of water
    5 ounces sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 quinces, cored and wedged
    8 ounces puff pastry (1 sheet)

How to Make Quince Tart

  1. Heat the water in a smaller pot. Add the sugar and vanilla extract. Cook and stir until the sugar melts.
  2. Add the quince edges and cook them for about 1-2 minutes while occasionally stirring.
  3. Coat a tart pan with butter and line it with a puff pastry sheet. Trim it and poke holes into it with a fork.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes at 350⁰F/175⁰C.
  5. Add the cooked wedges together with the sweet liquid to the tart pan. Bake for 20 minutes at 330⁰F/170⁰C.
  6. Garnish with powdered sugar.
