Ingredients:  
2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
1/2 cup butter (soft or melted in microwave works)
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. brown sugar (if fruit is tart)
Fruit such as plums, apricots, apples, berries (you can use one fruit or create colorful sections by using different fruits), enough to fill the pan, washed, pitted, and cut (if necessary) in uniform slices about 1/4" thick

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350⁰. In a food processor or mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add butter and whirl or rub with your fingers until mealy. Add egg and egg yolk and mix the dough until it is evenly moistened. Gather three-quarters of the dough and press it over bottom and side of a 9 or 10-inch tart pan with a removable bottom (a 9 x 9 square Pyrex pan works too for "fruit squares"). Arrange fruit over the dough. Top with remaining dough (i.e., a crumble topping), but leave some fruit showing. Sprinkle with brown sugar, if you feel the fruit is not sweet enough. Bake until crust is golden brown, about 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool and then remove pan sides.
