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.
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
- 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
- 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.
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!
A wonderful tart! That combination of flavors is absolutely droolworthy.
That sounds to be a wonderful combination of flavor – Peach & Ginger. Great photos

A fantastic tart!
Yummy, you used fresh ginger!
mm this looks so pretty! anything that combines fruit and ginger I am a huge fan of!
This is one is beautiful tart. Love the look of it.
I’m native Texas girl – gotta love those peaches…. check out Ham Orchard close to Terrell, TX.
Just beautiful! What a great way to get a peach fix while waiting for summer.
What a gorgeous tart! And love the flavor combination…just beautiful!
This is a beautiful tart and the peaches and ginger combination really rock. Bet it was delicious.
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… ;)
This is a beautiful tart.
What a gorgeous tart! The best peaches hit California in August – it’s such a long way to wait!!
LOVE this, Georgia! Something about “rustic” in the title always grabs my attention. I love ginger and peach together too. What a fabulous dessert!
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!
This is gorgeous!!!! I cannot wait for peach season myself. I’m determined to try and make jam this summer :)
Wow – it’s beautiful and so is the serving plate!
Beautiful! I love peaches.
This tart is absolutely beautiful and just picture perfect! This sounds so delicious I think I’ll be making this is the very near future.
What a gorgeous tart! Makes me long for summer!
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.
It IS summer here and I’ve got a huge bowl of nectarines that are screaming to hop into that rustic tart. Love the ginger too and it looks delicious!
Sigh…do I EVER miss summer peaches! The combination of that sweet tart juice and ginger sounds delicious!
Mmm we have lots of peaches at the moment and I just love the way you folded over your pastry! :D
Will be a while before we have summer peaches, need to get over winter first. Very professional looking tart.
Can’t wait for some good fresh peaches. This looks delicious!
That’s a jaw dropper of a photo right there, my friend. Wowsa. That tart looks outstanding!
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such kind comments, everyone!
Your tart looks beautiful. I love peaches too, and I confess I just bought a few even though they are barely in season right now.
Oh I love peaches so so much…
Your tarts look absolutely wonderful… Gorgeous..
I am sure ginger must have added so much of wonderful flavor here…
Really gorgeous pictures…
Absolutely Beautiful Georgia!!!
Such a beautiful looking tart! I wish I had the skill and patience to do the same.
stunning tart and can’t wait for peach season
Delicious tart — reminds me of summer :)
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!
Oh goodness! This looks divine! I love rustic tarts- they are so easy and so delicious! This looks absolutely beautiful!
This tart is so gorgeous!! I love the rustic look!
Peaches are my all time favorite baked dessert. I can hardly wait for the season again! I doubt that I could find any worth buying in my area right now. :( Hopefully soon! Your tart is gorgeous!
More butter now! Ha! Love it. I really want to get more into making these beautiful, rustic tarts.
This looks so good! Will have to make it soon!
We used to have a peach tree, but no longer. I usually head over to a friends and stock up. That is one thing I LOVE about Georgia – drippy juicy peaches!

A gorgeous looking tart!!! Such a beautiful blog you have!! Will come back for more :)
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!
