Ingredients

  • 6 plums, cut in half, pitted and thinly sliced (2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 pieces very thinly sliced white bread, such as Pepperidge Farm, cut into 4-inch rounds
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1/4 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt

Preparation

  1. Place rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 450°F.
  2. Combine plums, sugar and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the plums are tender and the juices have thickened, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place bread rounds on a baking sheet and brush with melted butter. Spoon the plum mixture over each bread round, so that all the bread is covered.
  4. Bake the tarts until the bread is crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Serve topped with a dollop of yogurt.
