Enjoy a Delectable Dessert for this Weeks Fresh Market Recipe
Baked Nectarines with Pistachios
You can enjoy stone fruits now, coaxing even firm nectarines to tenderness by baking them. With each spoonful of this simple dessert recipe shared by Martha Stewart, a rich, crunchy pistachio topping gives way to soft, juicy fruit.
What you will need: (Prep – 5 minutes, Total Time – 20 minutes, Serves 4)
- 4 tablespoons shelled pistachios (Hopkins)
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (Franks Cheese)
- 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 2 drops (less than 1/8 teaspoon) almond extract (optional)
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 nectarines, halved and pitted (Smit)
- 1/2 lemon (Atkins)
- 1/2 cup creme fraiche
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Step 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Chop 3 tablespoons pistachios in a food processor until finely ground. Add butter, confectioners’ sugar, almond extract, and salt. Process until combined.
Step 2Place nectarines, cut side up, on a baking sheet, and squeeze lemon over top. Place a generous tablespoon of pistachio mixture on each nectarine half. Chop remaining tablespoon pistachios, and sprinkle on top. Bake until fruit is tender and topping is crisp, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. Transfer to 4 plates.
Step 3Whisk together creme fraiche and granulated sugar. Spoon over nectarines, and serve.
