Peach Tart easy and delicious

By 10/08/2012

It is summertime and never like at this time of year there is so much fruit available.
Melons, watermelons, peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums and figs are the classic Italian summer type of fruits. Because they are in season they are very sweet and juicy and it is easy to have one after the other. When you start you cannot stop! The best would be to get them straight from the tree where they are at their best.

When it is hot you need plenty of fruit and vegetables as they contain lots of water and can help you cope with the heat.
So, this is the best time to use all the fruit available to make nice cakes and tarts.

I made the shortcrust pastry for this tart in the evening and in the morning I just put the fruit on it, so we could all have a nice summery breakfast in the garden.


  • Prep Time : 35 minutes
  • Cook Time : 20 minutes



Put the flour on your working top, make a hole in the middle and add the egg, salt, sugar and the cold butter cut into cubes.

With your hands incorporate the ingredients quickly and make a smooth dough.
Put it in the fridge wrapped in a cling film for 30 minutes.

Take it out of the fridge and with the help of a rolling pin flatten the pastry. Add a little flour if you find it difficult. Put the pastry on a round baking tin for tarts, pinch it with a fork all over and cook  at 180 C for about 20 minutes.

When it is cooked spread 2 tbsp of jam on it.
Cut the peaches into half moons and lay them nicely on the tart.

Mix 2 tbsp of jam and 2 tbsp of water in a sauce pan and cook for 5 minutes;  pour it on the tart over the peaches.

Just the perfect month to choose peaches and nectarines!

Also I am enterering this to the weekly "Made with Love Mondays" challenge hosted by my dearest friend Javelin Warrior.

    What a beautiful tart, Alida! The glaze really lends such a wonderful sheen to final result and you're right – it's impossible to stop eating a peach once you start… You and I must have been thinking along the same lines this week as I also made a pie with peaches (although it didn't turn out as beautifully)… Thanks so much for sharing…

    I have never made anything sweet with peaches but this year I am thinking to use my own home grown peaches. Just waiting them to get ripe to create something delicious like your peach tart.
