Tuesdays with Dorie: Crunchy and Custardy Peach Tart

crunchy and custardy peach tart

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.

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, or read sweet tarte.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Very beautiful! I love the texture and crunchy streusel!

  2. Hahaha–I have to admit, I do love the name of Dorie’s crust! Your tart looks lovely. Great photos (as usual!) Thanks for finding the time to bake with me this week and good luck with whatever it is you have going on.

  3. Your tart looks amazing! Glad you got to make it this week! 🙂

  4. Looks stunning! Now where’s my slice 😉

  5. Oh…it looks beautiful.

  6. Now, you’ve piqued my interest…looking forward to hearing what you’ve been up to.

    Your tart is picture perfect!

  7. I agree, this was hard to photograph. But your shot turned out so nice.

    I loved this tart.

  8. Your tart looks just right to me. I wish I had not gone to the trouble of peeling my peaches…it would have saved me from a lot of frustration. 😀

  9. The topping on yours looks fantastic! And now I’m curious about what’s been going on….

  10. I found it hard to photograph the deliciousness of this tart too, but I think you’ve made a really good job – it looks great!

  11. O-o-o-o-o. What are you up to? I’m quite curious now. Can’t wait to hear how it all turns out. Your tart looks better than mine. Maybe I should have left the skins on to remind me they started out fresh.

  12. LOL, you’re right, it wasn’t the prettiest tart ever… something about the struesel. Yours looks pretty darn good, though. Good call not peeling the peaches.

  13. There have been tons of really good peaches this year. Reason enough to make this one again and again and ag….well lots.

    Yours looks lovely.

  14. Ciao !!! This is a wonderful tart you made !! Isn’t it hot there to bake ?! Love

  15. Sorry – got this comment mixed up with one for another TWD blog! Here’s the one for yours:

    I love the color of the peaches peeking through the struesel, and YES it was very hard to photograph nicely!

  16. I just love that this tart is crunchy AND custardy… And I’m a sucker for all things peaches this summer 🙂 It looks beautiful!

  17. Yum, this looks great!

  18. Oh, your tart photographed just fine! It looks delicious. You made it with peel and all? As much as I love peaches I have to peel them. The fuzzy skin is a real creep factor for me, though once baked it wouldn’t be an issue. I’m not generally squeamish about textures, but peach skin is one that gets me. That along with eating with those little wooden ice cream paddle/spoons. Shutter.

  19. Where’s the vanilla bean ice cream?

  20. I’m really digging the unpeeled look. I like the extra burst of blushy color. Very pretty!

  21. This looks PERFECT!

  22. Pass the ice cream and I’m in Heaven. Beautiful color and picture. Be proud of that one.

    Plan B

  23. I simply can’t wait for peaches to be in season again. They are my absolute favourite fruit. I will have to remember this tart for summer! 🙂
