I adore making tarts-any flavor, sweet or savory, so I was excited when Rachel of SweetTarte chose Dorie Greenspan’s Crunchy and Custardy Peach Tart. I bought both peaches and nectarines for this tart, but decided on using the nectarines which I didn’t have to peel, plus I love the colors in nectarines. Lovely subtle reds with cream colored areas really appeal visually.
The almond tart crust is a perfect complement to the custardy nectarine filling with the almond streusel adding the finishing touch to a perfect dessert that can be enjoyed warm, cold or at room temperature. To gild the lily, add a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream to a warmed tart. Rachel has the recipe on her blog or you can find it in Dorie Greenspan’s book, “Baking From My Home to Yours”. Visit the Tuesdays with Dorie blogroll for other variations of this wonderful dessert.
