Peach Tart Recipe
Spring is the season where you find amazing produce such as peaches, apricots, plums, etc. It’s the best time of year to bake up a storm and make amazing tarts, such as this rustic peach tart that will have you begging for more.
How to Make a Peach Tart?
For the peach fillings, you can use canned peaches but I don’t recommend them. With fresh peaches in season, you should definitely use them for the best results. You can also caramelize the peaches for the filling.
One thing I love most about this French tarte peach is that it’s not too sweet; you can really taste the natural sweetness of the peaches.
Sprinkle some sugar on top of the peaches before baking is the secret that makes the tart especially mouthwatering. Every bite is fresh and pure enjoyment.

Easy Peach Tart Recipe
Easy Peach Tart - the best and easiest tart ever, loaded with peaches. The pie crust is flaky, buttery and delicious. This recipe is so easy and fail-proof for novice baker.
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 1/2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, plus 2 tablespoons melted butter (6 ounces)
- 1/3 cup ice water
- powdered sugar, (optional)
- 1 1/2 lbs. fresh peaches
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons granulated white sugar
1Preheat the oven to 400F.
2Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, mix the flour, salt and butter on low speed for 2 minutes, slowly add ice water until the dough becomes a ball.
3Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead 2 or 3 times, just until it comes together. Pat the dough into a disk. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough into a 16- to 17-inch round about 1/4 inch thick. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll the dough around the rolling pin and transfer onto the prepared baking sheet.
4Peach Filling: wash and, if needed, rub the peaches to remove any fuzz. Cut the peaches in half, remove the pits, and cut into thick 1-inch slices. Place the peach slices in a large bowl and season with the salt. Then add 3 tablespoons sugar and gently toss to combine. Arrange the peach slices on the pastry, placing them as close together without overlapping the slices too much. Leave about a two inch wide outside border. Gently fold the edges of the pastry up and over the peaches, pleating as necessary. Make sure to seal any cracks in the pastry.
5Bake the tart in the center of the oven for 1 hour, or until the peaches are tender and golden and the crust is cooked through. Let the tart cool slightly before serving. Dust with powdered sugar, optional.
