Peachy Keen Tart:

Today I couldn't help but have dessert for lunch on such a warm summer afternoon. So I baked up this quick and easy "Peachy Keen Tart." Half of if was devoured this afternoon with my good friends Lauren and Karen. I'll admit I had two slices!

You will need:
1: Pre made pie crust
2: Three Medium Peaches, slices 
3: 1/3 of a cup sugar (add more for under ripe peaches)
4: 1/4 of a cup brown sugar (add more for under ripe peaches)
5: 1 tsp ground cinnamon
6: 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
7: 1 tsp cornstarch
8: 1/2 tsp salt
9: 1 tbsp cold butter, cubed
10: 1 egg, beaten

Let's get started:
a: Lay pie crust over parchment paper on a cookie sheet, preheat oven as directed on pie crust's box. 
b: In a medium bowl, mix peaches, sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, cornstarch, and salt together gently.
c: layer peaches on pie crust as directed in the photograph below. 

 d: Fold over excess pie crust, brush entire tart with egg, and dot with butter cubes as shown in the following picture.

e: Bake per direction on pie crust's packaging:

Hello sweet tart!



  1. you have no idea! don't make this tart if you live alone... you will eat the entire confection in one sitting! (actually that might be an ok thing to do)
