Don’t have access to fresh mirabelle plums for this rustic plum tart? You can substitute almost any fruit, including apples, rhubarb, red currants, and other types of plums. You can also vary the recipe by glazing the cooled tart with apricot jam diluted with a little water; adding the contents of a vanilla bean, or a tablespoon of rum, or a tablespoon of brandy to the filling; and by reducing the flour to 1-1/2 cups and add 1/2 cup almond meal.
