Peach And Blueberry Tart

IMG_3976

This was a really busy week, I have neglected the blog, between work, the community work I do and this oppressive heat I haven’t had time or the inclination to use my stove/oven. On Thursday I got to meet one of the bloggers that I have been following for a long time, Shashi whose wonderful blog Runnin Srilankin is always chock full of delicious healthful recipes. We met at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory and had pizza at Grimaldi’s. It was great finally meeting her in person.

Last weekend I went to a barbeque, and decided to be daring and try a new recipe. This is a tried and true recipe that is very popular on Food52, it’s by Amanda Hesser and she got it from her Mom.  I used frozen peaches which is not the best idea as they produced a lot of juice and some plucots. The party was great but I had to leave before dessert was served and I didn’t get a chance to try it. The feedback though was that it was amazing. The simplicity of this recipe is what drew me, a press in crust that uses oil not butter, fresh fruit and you make a sugar, flour and butter crumble topping and sprinkle it on before baking.

Today I went to the farmers market and got some great produce, tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, nectarines and blueberries. Since I didn’t get to taste the tart I decided to make it today using the nectarines. Best laid plans don’t always work, the nectarines were very ripe and I put them at the bottom of my cart without thinking and 3 of them got squished, I will blame it on the heat,  for once I only bought enough for the tart, since I had some blueberries I decided to use them as well.

This tart is a winner, and I hope you give it a try. The ease of preparation, use of delicious seasonal fruit and beautiful presentation make this tart one that I will make over and over again. Next time with only peaches or nectarines, it’s not as pretty with the blueberries after it’s baked but still delicious.

This tart is coming with me to Fiesta Friday #130, Angie is away but has left the party in very good hands the co hosts this week are Judi @ cookingwithauntjuju and Petra @ Food Eat Love

Peach Tart

Made 1 9 inch tart (the recipe said 11 inch but I didn’t have enough fruit)

Pie Dough

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp sugar

3/4 tsp kosher salt

1/4 cup neutral oil (I used grapeseed)

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tbs milk (I used half and half)

6-8 peaches, nectarines sliced thickly (I added a pint of blueberries also)

Place the flour, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl and whisk or stir with a fork. Add the oil and milk and mix with a fork until cohesive.

Press into tart pan with your fingers pressing on the bottom and up the sides. Make sure there are no cracks in the dough. Trim and set aside. Pre heat the oven to 425 and line a sheet pan with parchment.

Arrange the fruit however you like in the tart pan.

Crumble topping

3/4 cup sugar

2-3 tbs flour

2 tbs cold butter

pinch of salt

Mix with your hands until it resembles fine crumbs. Distribute the crumbs on top of the tart and bake until golden brown and bubbly, approximately 45 minutes. It will seem like a lot of the topping, it’s ok use all of it.

  1. Just lovely Suzanne, great minds think alike. I too used nectarines and blueberries and made a fruit cobbler this week. I like your crust, was this with a removable bottom? The heat is oppressive isn’t it? I can’t wait for cooler weather :). Remind me never to say that in the depths of winter.

    • I had never combined blueberry and peach or nectarine before and they go together so well. Yes definitely we are on the same wave length. Thank you so much. I can’t take to much more of this heat. Lets remind each other not to complain when the weather gets cold. Thank you so much.

  2. Reblogged this on ravenhawks' magazine and commented:
    That looks awesome and it will certainly put the fresh fruit to good[tasty]use. Thank you.

  3. Looks and sounds like a winner Suzanne. Love the combination of fruit in your tart. “Mom” recipes are always good. I have not made a peach dessert yet – need to try something new. Good to see you at Fiesta Friday #130 would you believe? Thanks for sharing 🙂

    July 30, 2016
    • Thank you so much Judi. I do love peaches and nectarines and am loving how they taste with the blueberries. Thank you for co hosting the party this week.

      July 30, 2016
  4. Tarts and cobblers are my summer favorite Suzanne and this looks like a keeper, love how you added the blueberries in the middle. Beautiful presentation.

    July 30, 2016
    • Thank you so much Cheri, for me the best part of summer is the produce and making pies and cobblers is such a great way to highlight the delicious fruit.

  5. Suddenly I have an uncontrollable yen for blueberry and peach tart. I knew it would be mouthwatering the instant I saw the title, Suzanne.
    I’m with you about not wanting to use the stove or oven in this heat. At least it’s made me “clean out” my freezer (use up what’s frozen). Oh for a lovely autumn breeze… Mega hugs to you and Percy. 🙂

    • Ha, wish you were closer I would bring you some. i am literally counting the weeks until Fall. This heat is ridiculous. I hardly cook even though my kitchen is air conditioned it is still unbearably hot. the AC blows right near the stove and I have to turn it off if I am using the stovetop because the blowing air effects the flame on the stove. Hope your Sunday is relaxing and maybe a little cooler.

      July 30, 2016
  6. Will definitely try this!

    July 30, 2016
  7. Looks delicious! BTW, I am getting zucchini in my plant. How’z yours doing?

    July 30, 2016
    • Both plants died, I am the kiss of death for plants. So discouraged. Thanks so much.

      July 30, 2016
      • Awww 😦

        Try again.. This is my 3rd or 4th attempt…

        July 30, 2016
      • I will try again next year. Gives me some hope that it took you more than one try before you got zucchini!

        July 30, 2016
  8. I managed to pin it!

    July 30, 2016
  9. BLUEBERRIES…very addictive

    July 30, 2016
  10. Beautiful, Suzanne! I can’t get enough of fruit desserts right now. I made this tart years ago and I appreciate you reminding me of it. I’m bringing dessert to a potluck tomorrow and I think this will be perfect since we have so many peaches. We are in the midst of a big heat wave, too. Hopefully you’ll cool down soon!

    July 30, 2016
    • Thanks so much Hannah, hope you are well. I can’t believe I never made this tart before, it really is good. Stay cool as well!!

  15. You’ve created a beautiful presentation with the arrangement of the fruit, Suzanne. I love that fresh out of the oven photo…the juiciness of the fruit is apparent! Looks delicious.

    July 30, 2016
    • Thank you so much Nancy, the fruit is just so beautiful, I love the vibrant colors and they were so juicy and delicious.

      July 31, 2016
  16. Looks & sounds delicious! I love tarts, especially when there’s so much fresh fruit during summer. Peaches would be my favorite. 😊

    July 30, 2016
    • Mine too, and I love combining peaches with other fruit and berries. The best thing about summer is the produce. Thank you so much.

      July 31, 2016
  17. What a perfect combination of fruits! My favorite pie growing up was nectarine pie that my mother made. So I know I will LOVE trying this tart!

    July 31, 2016
    • I love nectaries, the flavor and the skin thats not fuzzy, LOL. Thank you so much.

      July 31, 2016
  18. That looks scrumptious Suzanne. Love the combination of peaches and blueberries and I’m sure it tastes amazing. I made so many tarts this summer, I think once a week 😀 Enjoy the rest of the weekend! 🙂

    July 31, 2016
    • Oh I wish I made them once a week, there is nothing more delicious than a tart using the wonderful summer fruits and berries. Thank you so much.

      July 31, 2016
  19. I am intrigued by the pie tart recipe, I will try it the next time I make a tart. Peaches are in season here in California. I hope it cools down for you.

    July 31, 2016
    • The pie crust is very fragile, tender and almost crumbly. Delicious with the fruit and so easy to make. Love peaches, I need to buy some more, slice and freeze for the winter. Thanks so much Garlande.

      July 31, 2016
  20. Great minds think alike Suzanne!! I bought plums and blueberries yesterday to make a tart today!! LOL!!! yours looks delish!!!! Cheers friend!! 🙂

    July 31, 2016
    • Ahh,,, I would love to see your tart. You know I think my least favorite pie is blueberry but when combined with other fruit it’s wonderful. Thank you so much.

      July 31, 2016
      • I will take pictures, but we are working on videos for my companies facebook page, so I was going to film it, but I will try to do pictures too…as I was going to do this yesterday but yeah that didn’t happen, I am hoping tomorrow I can make it 🙂 I am so bad!! Cheers!! 🙂

    • … sorry – such a lovely mix ! – hummmmmm ! – I want the same – kisses et amitiés, dear Suzanne – Hope you will find some fresh air – and the lovely dog too – france 🙂

      July 31, 2016
      • Lol, thank you France, amitiés et bisous! The temperature is much more pleasant today, Percy actually took a real walk without becoming overheated. Thanks you so much.

        July 31, 2016
  22. The available fruit locally here in Oregon has been AMAZING this year! I ate probably more than I do in a two-week span over the weekend, but still decided to buy more today, lol. Your fruit tart looks absolutely exceptional Suzanne. My parents are visiting right now and should be just the ticket as something to make for them as I don’t do well in cooking cakes and such and they do have a sweet tooth. Much love and hugs to Percy, as always. xoxoxo

    August 1, 2016
    • Thanks so much Kathryn, great that your Oregon fruit is so good. It’s been ok here but not what I would classify as exceptional. We don’t have the abundance we normally do and what he do have is good but not great. Let me know what you think if you make the tart. It was my first time and it really is a good one.

      August 1, 2016
      • I do think I will on Saturday when I pick up some fruit from the farmer’s market. My parents would love a treat like this! I’ll let you know how it turns out. 🙂

        August 1, 2016
  23. Oh! Yum yum!! 😀 I need a slice for my afternoon tea. x

    August 1, 2016
  24. That is such a beautiful tart, Suzanne! I love the combination of fruit you used. Anything that has crumble on it, is wonderful to me, but I especially love blueberries and peaches. It is so great you have a farmer’s market nearby. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    August 1, 2016
    • Thanks so much Shari, adding blueberries was because it’s what I had but it really is a wonderful combination, I usually combine peaches or nectarines with blackberries. This is actually a new favorite now.

      August 1, 2016
  25. What a lovely tart–yumm. So much fun to meet in person Suzanne!

  29. OH gosh Suzanne– this looks luscious! I know what you mean about not turning on the oven– but I’m thinking this tart was totally worth it! So beautiful– and I loved the photo of the fresh fruit before you baked it, so pretty! Stay cool! xox

    August 3, 2016
    • Thanks Rhonda, the photo of the fruit before baking is my favorite, the colors are so vibrant. The temp is improved, a bit cooler now much better than it was. Percy is happy that he can walk without being so uncomfortable. Looking forward to Fall. Thanks so much.

      August 3, 2016
