Easy and Tasty Summer Peach Tart

by | Payton's Pastries

Robb & I are just getting back from the 127 (aka “World’s Longest Garage Sale”).  We had a great time with lots of fun vintage finds!

Anytime we travel through Georgia in the summer, we always try to pick up some fresh peaches…which goes perfectly with the return of Payton’s Pastries post today.  Payton took a little break this summer from posting, but this tart recipe is a can’t-miss!

I’m also happy to join a  group of talented ladies sharing THEIR summer inspiration.  If you’re coming here from Tater Tots & Jello, welcome!  I know you enjoyed her creative twist on summer recipes!

So, without further ado, here’s Payton to tell you all about her dessert!

     Our summer has been pretty amazing so far. We’ve had countless pool days, lots of fun at the beach, and an amazing road trip out West. What would make any summer better, though, is this delicious peach tart that I experimented with.

It is absolutely one of my top fruit desserts that I have made!

It is basically just a spin off of the apple tart recipe I shared with you in the fall, but substituting peaches for apples. This dessert is perfect for any summer occasion, whether it’s a family get together or the finale to a barbecue.

The best part about this peach tart is that you can make it all year round using canned peaches, like we did, or use some fresh peaches if you make it in season. The canned peaches were just as tasty, and they spared us the trouble of having to peel, pit, and slice up fresh peaches.

If you are an overachiever like me, you might just want to go through the extra work to get that fresh peach flavor, but it really is up to you.

     My first suggestion if you are wanting to make this tart is to make sure you have a tart pan with a REMOVABLE BOTTOM. It is going to be crucial for getting that smooth looking edge out of the tart pan without cracking or crumbling. This will save you in the long run when making any kind of tart.

     The second tip that I would want to let you in on, especially if you are wanting it to look pretty as well as taste good, is to make sure that you spread the dough out evenly across the entire pan. That way when you go to press the crust up onto the edges of the pan, you don’t run out of dough in certain spots.
