Rustic Peach and Ginger Tart

Rustic Peach Tart

Okay, now. I’m sure you’re not seeing too many peach recipes lately, and I’m well aware of why that is. Full disclosure: I moved to Texas last summer and immediately began living and breathing for ripe, in-season peaches that soften in your hand, drip down your chin and practically liquefy in your mouth. But let’s end this romance novel now – It is definitely not peach season. Not in Texas, not anywhere.

For that I am sad.

I still enjoy a good peach year-round, though, even if they’re a little more hard and tart this time of year. But alas, a Georgia needs her peach. These are just the facts.

Rustic Peach Tart Recipe

So, I had some leftover peaches and decided to make a tart. A tart with lemon juice, fresh ginger and buttery homemade pie dough… and then dotted with more butter. Why? Because I have no resolutions this year and live with reckless abandon. At least in the kitchen that is. MORE BUTTER NOW!

But seriously, these tarts are my favorite thing – next to a pot of spicy chicken chili – to make in the entire world. They’re so easy and divinely delish with homemade whipped cream, not to mention pretty even if you just toss the fruit in the center and don’t arrange it all pretty.

Whether you make this with store bought or homemade dough, use any manner of fruit, or enjoy it in the company of family or friends, you will love it so much and savor its summery flavors even during this cold season.

Rustic Peach and Ginger Tart

Yield: Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

All-purpose flour, for dusting your work surface

1 9-inch pie dough, store bought or homemade

2 peaches, sliced 1/4-inch thick

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

2 Tablespoons milk or heavy cream

Directions:

Heat oven to 400° F. On a lightly floured surface, roll the pie dough into one 9-inch circle. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet.

In a large bowl, toss the peach slices, cornstarch, lemon juice, ginger and 3 tablespoons sugar. Pour filling onto the pie crust, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold the edges of the crust over the fruit mixture.

Brush the milk or heavy cream on the crust and sprinkle with the remaining teaspoon of sugar. Bake until the crust is golden brown and the fruit is tender, 25 to 30 minutes.

Enjoy!

    I actually saw peaches the other day in Trader Joe’s and almost grabbing some (I’m a big peach fan too). But then I wonder if they were any good and didn’t buy. Reading about your tart makes me want to make this right away. I will buy store bought pie sheet, but I can’t wait to make this! Adding ginger and butter… oh it gets better. I’m keeping my resolution unfortunately, but it won’t stop me. =) Hopefully I can control… milk/heavy cream on the crust is interesting – I’ve never done that (but I don’t bake often so maybe that’s why).

    Peach and ginger is such a wonderful combination – it sounds delicious. I’m so bored of this season with limited fresh fruit around (especially in the UK). Makes me yearn for warmer times!

    Wow, that tart is gorgeous, Georgia! I’m bummed it’s not peach season here either. Great time of the year. There’s a large likelihood I could eat that entire tart… ;)

    How I wish peaches were in season. Heck I’d be happy just to see a peach in my grocery store this time of year. Your tart looks amazing. Thanks for sharing, will bookmark this for peach season.

    Georgia, I love nothing more than a perfectly ripe peach. Just used up the last of the organic peaches I froze last summer, so I have quite a wait ahead of me!

    I am so ready for all the wonderful summer fruit, especially peaches! Tarts are a great way to showcase the awesome flavor of fruit, even more so than pies I think. This does look delicious, wish I had a slice! Well done.

    I can’t wait for beautiful fruits to be in season again. We are having such strange weather in So Cali that my peach tree is already flowering. Hopefully we’ll have fresh peaches this year.

    You make such beautiful food, Georgia. Your crust and those vibrant peaches…just gorgeous. This will be the year I master the pie and tart crust. Thank you for the inspiration. :)

    Hope you’ve been well and all settled in, out there!

    Making this TONIGHT! We never get those beautiful, perfectly juicy and ripe peaches all the way up here in NH, but this should make my Carolina-born fiance feel a little more at home!
