P&Q: Crunchy and Custardy Peach Tart

I made this in 2008 for the first time and I have made it various times since. Simply lovely.

Have at it…

(sorry for the delay, Colb broke his foot and its been chaos here.)

  1. I made this a few weeks ago, since I wasn’t sure there would be fresh peaches this late in the season. It was so good that we could have eaten the entire tart in one sitting.

  2. I’ve been checking out the recipe and notice that the baking temperatures are awfully high and baking time is quite long. I would appreciate some advice on how to maintain a nice golden crust instead of it browning to much.

  3. I have an abundance of pecans in my freezer and I was thinking of using them in the crust and for the “crunch” but I know Dorie said that almonds bring out the flavor of peaches- do you all think the tart worse with pecans than almonds?

  4. We are slap in the middle of peach season here in VA. I got peaches from my fruit share this week. They were extremely tasty, but on the smaller side. I used one additional peach, but think I would have been better served to have used two additional. It was still tasty – VERY TASTY – but I think the proportions of custard to peach were off a tad. Woe is me, I’ll have to give it another go!

      • Oh, sorry – I did not realize I left it hanging like that. It was too much custard – sort of!

        I think if my peaches had been larger they would have stood out more from the custard. As small as they were, however, it was more a case of hidden peaches – except for the center one.

        I am also not a huge custard fan, so from my perspective the less of that the better! I am a HUGE peach fan, though.

  5. I’m making this tomorrow for a nice Sunday dessert.

    Going to pick my peaches up from a local fruit stand in a few. My struesal is chilling in the fridge…can’t wait.

  6. This looks pretty, better taste good. I’ve decided–making pretty tarts is not my thing. It’s just not fun. I get too frustrated.
    It’s in the oven, but I think I just added the streusel at the wrong time, the directions are a little confusing. Does the streusel go on after the 10 minutes or after the 30? I put it on after 10 and I think they shouldn’t go on until 30. I will not be happy if it burns. Sigh.
    Don’t worry, I’ll be fine. ;)

  7. I’m afraid I have to pass this week, my husband and I just bought a new house and we’ve been spending every waking moment painting and moving. Half my baking supplies are at the old house, half at the new, it is just general chaos. Hopefully we’ll be all done for next week!
