Author Notes

Juicy and aromatic nectarines,with the warmth of cinnamon and the bright kick of the ginger,all packed in a buttery,flaky biscuit dough. This hybrid is a result of a greedy food lover,who can't make up her mind whether to make just biscuits with macerated nectarines or fruit tart,and loves flavor combinations that are fresh and unusual! —RitaAnastasiou
