Artisan caramelized peach plum tart recipe
Hi Guys, I hope everybody had a great Valentine’s weekend. I have been enjoying catching up with the new collections of NYFW. Today I want to share this super sweet recipe (since I haven’t posted a recipe lately). This is very simple-easy to do, especially when you have some fruits in your kitchen that you need to eat right away. So in this case, and if you follow my blog, you will know that last weekend I was picking up peaches at my Sister’s friends farm, well anyway, I found myself having many in my kitchen that are starting to lose their freshness, so the first thing I do is grab them, wash them and cut them in half, and mix them with a little bit of brown sugar. It’s incredibly juicy, and smells wonderful! I set this aside and start working on my crust, with these ingredients:
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup sugar
½ cup butter, melted
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups flour
The steps are here:
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla and sugar until uniform.
- Add melted butter and salt, and whisk to combine.
- Whisk flour into wet mixture until dough is formed.
- Press into greased 10” tart pan with your fingers, evenly distributing dough within the pan.
In a bowl, combine 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt and the butter. (If your peaches are especially juicy, add 1 additional tablespoon of flour). Using your fingers, pinch the butter into the dry ingredients until crumbly, with a mixture of fine granules and tiny pebbles.
Starting on the outside, arrange the peaches and the plums overlapping in a concentric circle over the pastry; fill in the center in whatever pattern makes sense. The peaches should fit snugly. Sprinkle the pebbly butter mixture over top (it will seem like a lot). Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until shiny, thick bubbles begin enveloping the fruit and the crust is slightly brown. Cool on a rack. Serve warm or room temperature, preferably with generous dollops of whipped cream.
And finally you can serve this with a nice cup of coffee, or a glass of coconut water, or as shown in these pictures, with a nice glass of Champagne.
I hope you guys like it!.
