Easy Puff Pastry Peach Tart

Looking for a super easy and mouthwatering summer dessert, filled with juicy seasonal fruit which is ready in no time?!? Look no farther, this puff pastry peach tart is exactly what you need

Puff Pastry Peach Tart

Here is a summer recipe that I'm sure you'll want to try. 

It's easy, delicious and it bakes in no time. I know, I know, it's summer!! And when the high temperature hits, the last thing we want to do is turn on the oven. BUT. Yes, there's always a but. This tart only takes 15 minutes to bake and the end results is soooo good that you won't mind... No matter how hot and sweaty is going to get in your kitchen ;)

Puff Pastry Peach Tart

There's nothing like a bite of a mouth-watering peach-filled treat especially when peaches (or nectarines) are as sweet and juicy as right now!

I simply love their natural sweetness on top of this flaky and buttery puff pastry. With just the perfect amount of crispy and soft, all in the same perfect bite. And if you're anything like me, you will want to eat your slice right off the oven with a BIG scoop of your favorite ice cream on the side. 

For this recipe I'm using frozen puff pastry (Pepperidge Farm or similar) that you can easily find in most groceries stores, to make things quick and easy. All you need to do, is score the edge so it will evenly rise when in the oven. This means lightly cut/mark the dough around the border with the tip of a sharp knife, just to mark and not cut all the way through the dough. 

Prick with a fork the middle part that will be covered with peaches, so it won't rise too much. While the edge of your pastry will rise evenly to golden brown and crispy perfection.

Note: I sprinkle the dough with a bit of caster sugar - but you don't have to if you want to keep this recipe low-sugar. The same thing is true for the peaches: I toss them with a bit of sugar (regular or brown sugar), cinnamon, and lemon juice. But it's up to you if you want to do that or skip on the sugar.

I cut the tart into 9 small squares (3x3), but next time I think I will double up the recipe, make two tarts and cut pastry sheet each into 4 squares... It's so light and so good, that you'll want a big slice!

  5. Arrange the peach slices (random or lined up in three raw) inside the border. 
  6. Brush the edges with some milk or egg wash (one egg mixed with one tablespoon of water).
