Nectarine Tart made with Spelt Flour
I was recently introduced to spelt. It is a type of wheat that is good for people with other wheat intolerance's and isn't altered the way other flours are. So I decided to make a tart with nectarines that I picked up at the farmer's market. It tasted great, although it would have been greatly enhanced with ice cream! However, the dough was really difficult to work with.
3 T oil
2 T water
1/4 tsp salt
1 C and 2 T spelt flour
Whist oil, water and salt. Stir in flour until evenly moist. Press into 9 inch pie plate. Top with fruit, sprinkle with sugar and bake at 375 for 12 minutes.
I ended up adding a little more water and 2 T butter for a workable consistency for the crust.
