Tuesdays with Dorie: Crunchy and Custardy Peach TartAugust 24, 2010 at 9:43 am | Posted in groups, pies & tarts, sweet things, tuesdays with dorie | 23 Comments
Over the last couple weeks, I’ve suddenly become a very busy girl, with reasons that have nothing to do with working (heck–I am not even working right now…still on a self-proclaimed “summer break”) or blogging. I’m learning a lot of weird stuff that, up until now, I had no reason to know or care about. I think you’d find it a little boring if I went into details about it now, as it’s all more of an idea than a reality at this point, but I’ll fill you in soon.
No matter what’s going on, I’m never to busy to bake, and even if Rachel of sweet tarte hadn’t decided on Crunchy and Custardy Peach Tart, I was still planning on making it this month. I think the peaches here have been great this year, and I’ve picked up a tree’s worth of them at the market. This tart combines those peaches (which I didn’t even bother to peel) with custard and almond streusel and puts them all inside a delicious, cookie-like sweet tart (hey– is that why Rachel picked this?) shell. Yeah, I liked this one a lot, even if it didn’t photograph too well.
