TWD: Crunchy and Custardy Peach Tart

It's peach season now, and there could be no better way to celebrate than to make Dorie's Crunchy and Custardy Peach Tart. I made this a few weeks ago, and it disappeared in the blink of an eye.


When I go to the farmers market on Wednesday, I will see if there are still peaches and nectarines available, because I really need to bake this tart again!




In between the peachy spokes, there is a lovely custard that has been topped with a streusel mixture. This creates a wonderful flavor and texture combination between the creamy and nutty and the fruity. There is a visual texture as well.




Thanks to Rachel of
sweet tarte for a perfect summer dessert. You can find the easy recipe on her blog.



After looking at a few early posts, I'm wondering if we all used the same recipe and instructions, because my tart looks totally different. That's one of the fun things about baking groups, though. Everyone's efforts can look completely dissimilar. I'll be checking the TWD blog tomorrow morning to see all the tarts and read all the comments.

I think your tart looks lovely, and just as Dorie described. I made mine in a rectangular pan, so it definitely looks different.

Beautiful tart. I made one mini and now am sorry I didn't make a large one. Guess I will just have to sacrifice and make it again.
