Tuesdays with Dorie: parisian peach tartlet
Peaches have always had a soft spot in my heart because my grandma always had a peach tree in her back yard. My cousin and I loved to run out there and gather the ripe and fallen peaches every day this time of year. So of course, when the Parisian Apple Tartlet was announced, and it was peach season, I made a Parisian Peach Tartlet. I’m a rebel, I know. (Well, not really, but sometime I like to pretend 😉 )
It’s really beautiful and delicious just like that, but if you want to really amp it up in both the color and taste department, you could add some fresh raspberries:
Or, if it’s someone’s birthday, you could add some icecream and stick a candle in the ice cream. I forgot to take a picture of the candle one, but you get the idea:
This was such a simple desert to make (just a little fresh fruit plus butter and brown sugar on some puff pastry and bake) and yields such stellar results. If you want an actual recipe, I recommend getting Baking From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. Or you could just head over to Jessica’s blog – she chose this wonderful recipe and is quite likely to have the recipe posted by the end of the day!
