My favorite preparation of peaches is definitely this rustic peach tart. Its one of the most beautiful ways to prepare peaches and still let them be the star of the dessert.


Fresh peaches 2 Pound
Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
Ground cinnamon 1/4 Teaspoon
Brown sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Spiced rum 2 Tablespoon
Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon
Flour 2 Tablespoon
Pie crust 1 (storebought or homemade)
Heavy cream 1 Tablespoon
Turbinado sugar 2 Tablespoon



1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Cut each peach into 16 slices.


3. In a mixing bowl, toss the peach slices with the brown sugar, cinnamon, spiced rum, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and flour. Set aside.

4. Roll the pie crust out into a big circle, about 12 inches in diameter.

5. Onto a rimmed baking sheet, transfer the rolled crust and dump the peaches, along with any of the liquid in the bowl, onto the center of the rolled crust, leaving a 2 inch rim on all sides.

6. Distribute the peaches as necessary to form into a relatively flat layer and fold the sides of the pie crust up and over as shown in the video.

7. Brush the crust with heavy cream and sprinkle turbinado sugar all over the heavy cream brushed crust.

8. Pop in oven and bake for about 40 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the peaches are caramelized.


9. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream and enjoy!
