Spiced Peach Tart

I have been continuing with my favorite summer cooking theme – desserts made with fruit this week. I actually called one of my best friends and asked her if she had any suggestions a she mentioned a tart, that was really more of a galette and she said was super quick and easy. The one she recommended called for apples but I went with peaches instead, and added some spices.

1/2 recipe pie crust dough
2-3 large mostly ripe peaches
2-3 tablespoons sugar
1 tsp powdered ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

Slice the peaches. Stick them in a large bowl and toss with the sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and vanilla until the peaches are evenly coated. Roll the pie crust dough into a large circle and place it on a baking sheet (or pie plate if you prefer. Dump the peaches in the midd of the crust and spread them out, leaving a two inch ring of dough around it. Fold the dough over the peaches – it won’t be totally covered, the center shouldn’t have any dough over it. Bake at 400 for 25 minutes or so – until the crust is golden brown. Serve warm or cold – both are tasty!

Honestly, my only complaint with this dish is that I should have used more peaches. Also that I used white peaches which I don’t like as much as the yellow ones, but they were on sale, so, c’est la vie. This is super easy and quick to make, and it is very tasty. A solid dessert that you can totally eat for breakfast too. Song of the Week: Night on Bald Mountain by Modest Mussorgsky. I’ve been on a solid Russian composer kick for the past week, and mostly listening to the darker stuff. This was one of the many, but it is excellent.
