Peaches and Grapes Tart

Sometimes when I go to the farmers” market I get carried away and buy more things that we can eat and this is why I wanted to make a tart, as I had a lot of peaches and grapes to use.

Would you believe that this is the first time I am making a tart?  I was kind of afraid to try making tarts and although I bought a tart pan many years ago, I never used it.   After reading some recipes, I saw it was quite easy, so I decided it was about time to make my first attempt.   See step by step instructions here.   (You will be seeing more recipes soon, as I have already made two more).

For the filling and topping I already decided what to do before finding a recipe.

I am send this recipe to Bee and Jai of Jugalbandi, whose theme for their month’s Click Event is crusts.

I am also sending this recipe to Sophie, of Key Ingredient’s Kick Cooks Kitchen, who are hosting an event on Apples or Peaches

Peaches and Grapes tart, crust adapted from Joy of Baking.com

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½cups (210 grams) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup (50 grams) granulated white sugar
  • ½ cup (113 grams) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Filling:

  • 300 grams cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 spoonfuls granulated white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

TOPPING:

  • 50 grams granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 grams) ground cinnamon
  • 2 peaches peeled and cut into slices
  • 1/3 cup sultana grapes

Directions:

CRUST:

In a bowlplace the flour and sugar. Pulse to blend together. Add butter and pulse until dough just begins to come together. Pat the dough onto the bottom of the tart pan and up the sides of the pan. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator while you make the filling.

FILLING:

In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the sugar and mix well. Blend in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Remove the crust from the fridge and pour in the filling. Return to refrigerator while you prepare the topping.

TOPPING:

Combine the sugar and cinnamon on top of the sliced peaches and mix.

Roll out dough and place in a greased and floured 22 cm tart pan.

Add the cream and then arrange the fruit on top.   (At the beginning I planned to use only peaches but the tart looked empty so I filled in the gaps with the grapes and this makes it look and taste even better, but if you don’t have any, just add the peaches).

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C and place rack in center of oven.

Instead of following the directions to place crust weights on the crust and bake it for 25 minutes I baked it together with the filling for about 1 hour until golden brown and filling was almost set.

Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool.

Leftovers can be covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated.

    Good morning Ivy! It happens the same to me all the time! Going to the farmer’s market with a purpose and comming back home with too many things I didn’t plan to buy… but when I see those figs and peaches and melons… and mangos! Last Friday I bought 3 for 1 Euro!!!!! Amazing, they were Brazilian!

    Your tart looks delicious and with all the fruit I have I should definitevely get started one day! Do you think mangos and kiwis would fit?

    Hola Nuria. I have never tried the combination of mangoes and kiwis but my instinct tells me that it would be a great combination. I would definitely try it. I also bought a lot of figs which I had to use in the end so I will be posting about figs as well.

    Kalimera sis. Off to the farmers market this morning but decided to stop by. I’m sure I will see lots of peaches at the market and maybe even some grapes. I am going for apples and tomatoes and anything of interest too of course. I’m glad that you tried a tart. There is so much you can do with them. I like the doughs that you press in like shortbread crusts etc…just because pastry does not seem to like me:D

    This tart really doesn’t look like its your first. Grapes and peaches is an unusual combination.

    Kalimera for you sis, it’s kalispera here as it is late in the afternoon. Apples aah, have cooked with apples today. I have already made three tarts and I think I will be making a lot of them

    Aparna, well it’s the first time regarding the crust. I’ve used the cream cheese in many recipes and the combination of peaches and grapes was great.
