I’m so happy that so far, the peaches seem to be good this season. Last year’s peaches sucked! I have a long list of “must make peachy things” and I started with this super yummy, beautiful, easy peach tart! It’s only 3 ingredients!! Seriously! Aren’t you excited?
I didn’t peel my peaches for this, because I wanted it to be extra purty, with that beautiful red color. But the next time, I will either cut up the peaches or remove the peels altogether. They get a bit chewy..just a wee bit. But I like the bit of tart it gives the peaches. So, you decide what you wanna do.
For the glaze, I cooked a peach with some sugar and mashed it up. But if you don’t want to hassle with that, here are some options:
– heat up some peach jam in the microwave for a few seconds
– heat up (just to soften) a bit of honey or corn syrup
This is best eaten within an hour of making it. That way, the puff pastry will still have some crisp. But this is so good even when its soft….cold or room temp.
Super Simple Peach Tart
1 puff pastry, thawed
5 medium peaches, (4 of them sliced and 1 chopped up)
1/4 cup sugar
Heat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the pan in the oven to heat the pan.
For the peach glaze, place the pieces of the one peach in a saucepan with the 1/4 cup sugar. Heat until peaches are soft enough to smash up and mixture looks like a peach topping. Remove from heat and allow to cool a bit.
Slice up the remaining 4 peaches.
Remove the hot baking sheet from the oven. Unroll the puff pastry and lay it out on the parchment lined baking sheet. Fold over the edges, just a bit, to form a crust as pictured above. Place the sliced peaches on top of the pastry in any pattern you want. Brush with the peach glaze that you made. Brush some glaze on the crust edge, all around.
Bake for 25 minutes. Crust should be golden brown. Serve as is, with ice cream or whip cream.
