4 pluots (about 3/4 pound), pitted and cut in 1/4-inch slices
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
8 ounces frozen puff pastry, thawed
8 teaspoons plum or apricot jam
Whipped cream for serving (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a medium bowl, toss the fruit with sugar and spices.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry until 1/8-inch thick and cut out eight 4-inch circles, gathering remnants and re-rolling the pastry if necessary.
Arrange the pastry discs on a lightly greased baking sheet and brush them with 1 teaspoon jam each. Curl up the edges in to form a 1/2-inch border and arrange four to five pluot slices in each cup, overlapping them slightly.
Bake the tartlets for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown. Cool on a rack and serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
