Open-Faced Nectarine Tarts
Though it might seem odd to buy low-fat tortillas and then spray them with cooking spray, the reason for this is that low-fat tortillas are thicker and sturdier than regular flour tortillas (this, of course, is one way that the manufacturer gets the nutrition numbers to work out right). Anyway, the sturdiness of the tortilla works well for these open-faced tarts.
  • 4 low-fat 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 1/3 cup currant jelly
  • 4 nectarines, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Spray a baking sheet lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Place the tortillas on the baking sheet spray them lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Brush each tortillas with 2 teaspoons of the currant jelly. Arrange the sliced nectarines in concentric circles on each of the tortillas. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the fruit.

3. Bake the tortillas in the upper third of the oven for 10 minutes or until the fruit is tender. Remove from the oven and brush the remaining currant jelly over the hot nectarines.
