simple sunday: rustic peach tart

June 26, 2011

Rustic fruit tarts are one of my favorite desserts to make because they are so easy.  There really isn’t a recipe and there are only 4-5 ingredients.

Use whatever fruit is in season — peaches, plums, strawberries, blackberries.

Here’s what else you’ll need:

In a bowl, combine the fruit with cinnamon-sugar.  I don’t measure this — I usually just use enough to make a thin layer on the fruit.

Roll out the pie dough on a cutting board. Pile the fruit mixture in the middle of the dough.

Start folding the edges of the dough back towards the fruit.

Throw a few slices of butter in the middle of the tart.  Sprinkle the crust with sugar crystals.

Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 17-20 minutes.  Remove from the oven when the crust is light brown and the fruit is soft.

Slice into eighths and serve with vanilla ice cream.  Yum!
