EASY PEACH TART

Summer is in full swing which means stone fruit season is here.

I love stone fruit whether it is juicy peaches, plums or nectarines.

While stone fruit is great for snacking this stone fruit tart is an easy, elegant and delicious way to incorporate it into a simple pastry that you can serve at breakfast, brunch or as a summer dessert.

This Easy Peach Tart also pairs perfectly with your morning coffee or tea.  You will love this easy peach dessert.

Flaky pastry is topped with stone fruit and baked to sweet perfection. The tart is finished off with a drizzle of honey and turbinado raw cane sugar.

It really captures the essence of summer, combining the natural sweetness of delicious peaches with a buttery, flaky crust.

The best part about this beautiful tart is that it only uses 4 ingredients and is so easy to make.

All you have to do is arrange puff pastry, layer beautifully sliced stone fruits like nectarines, peaches and apricots on top and bake them in the oven until golden brown.

You can serve this alongside other side dishes like summer salads, frittatas or other appetizers.

WAYS TO MODIFY THIS EASY PEACH TART

CHEESE: You could add goat cheese or feta cheese to this tart and either would be a great addition. 

FRUIT: If you want to try a different fruit other than fresh peaches you can use berries like strawberries or black berries, cherries, nectarines, apricots, peaches, plums or even apples. 

SPICES: A few spices that would be a nice addition are cinnamon, nutmeg or allspice. I would just use a small amount and toss the fruit in the spices. 

SUGAR: Brown sugar is a nice addition to toss the sliced peaches in to add a bit of extra sweetness. You could also sprinkle brown sugar on the puff pastry before baking.

PRESERVES: You could add apricot preserves, strawberry jam, raspberry jelly or other preserves. 

OTHER ADDITIONS: If you don’t want to use honey you could try agave or maple syrup.

Notes

The egg wash is an important part of the process to get that beautiful golden color on the puff pastry. You can use a vegan option instead of the egg if you want.

Any stone fruit works- try peaches, plums, cherries, nectarines, peaches or apricots. You can mix them also which creates a beautiful tart.
