Rustic peach tart is probably one of the easiest and nicest desserts! I mean, it's so quick to prepare, and so delicious that one can hardly resist eating it up right after it comes out of the oven. :P In truth this time we actually failed to stop us from doing this and instead of vanilla ice cream we ended up having a big portion of vanilla sauce on top of it. Never mind it was still great!
There are plenty of different recipes for the rustic tart and I myself often change small details, depending on the day or mood. You can of course also use different types of fruits, plums, peaches, apples and of course cherries. I guess what always stands is the portion of ice - cream as a final touch! Here is the recipe:
250 g flour
80 g butter/baking margarine (preferably cooled down in the fridge)
4 table spoons cold water
2 table spoons white sugar
1 tea spoon ground ginger (you can always replace it with cinnamon, if you are a cinnamon fan:))
A little bit of salt (as usual for the dough)
For the peaches:
2 table spoons cane sugar
1 table spoon potato starch
1 table spoon vanilla sugar
1 table spoon butter
1 table spoon chopped marzipan (you can add more if you like)
Step by step:
Place all the dry ingredients, flour, sugar and spices (ginger and salt) in the food processor. Add the chopped butter/baking margarine and let it blend in. Then add water in portions (one spoon at the time) and let the ingredients combine. Flatten the dough, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for about 20 minutes. '
In the meantime prepare the filling, cut peaches into slices or small pieces. Then drizzle them with potato starch and both types of sugar. Leave aside for a couple of minutes.
Roll the chilled dough into the round shape of approximately 25 diameter. Place the prepared fruits in the middle of the dough and spread the chopped marzipan and butter bites on top. Finally, fold the edges of the dough up and bake for 40-45 minutes in 200 °C until the light golden color. Let the tart cool down for a couple of minutes and decorate with icing sugar. Serve with ice cream! Bon appetit! :-)
