Home Made Summer-The Sweet-Strawberry Peach Tart

Strawberry Peach Tart | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

This was my perfect breakfast. If I could make this every week, I would do just that.

The perfect buttery flaky crust and the just sweet enough fruity filling with the slightest amount of tart, is the way I would describe this Strawberry Peach Tart from Home Made Summer Cookbook Review and Giveaway.

This tart will be in my book indefinitely! I especially like that I can use just about any fruit in my kitchen, fruit bowl, or freezer! Yep, I used frozen fruit here and it was delicious. Fresh frozen sliced peaches and whole strawberries were my fruit of choice for this tart. After the fruit has been doused with sugar, it is ready to go into the freshly rolled tart crust.

Preheat the oven to 400F.

On a floured board, roll the chilled dough into a rough 12 inch circle.

Transfer the dough carefully to parchment paper or a silicone baking mat on a baking sheet.

Arrange the fruit in the center of the dough, leaving 1 1/2-2 inches around.

Carefully fold the extra crust edge over the fruit, pinching any dough together that cracks. Don’t worry if it looks imperfect, it looks better that way.

Bake for about 35 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.

The tart tastes best warm and fresh out of the oven. Sprinkle generously with powdered sugar or dollop with fresh whipped cream.

Home Made Summer-Hearty, Sweet, & Spicy-Cookbook Review and Giveaway

Home Made Summer Giveaway | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

It’s a Home Made Summer. When I think of Summer, I do think of home made foods. Home made salads and pastries bursting with fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh meats rubbed down with fresh herbs and spices. Food that makes your taste buds sing.

That is exactly what Home Made Summer by Yvette van Boven is all about-fresh creations that are HOME MADE.

I had fun reviewing Yvette’s unique cookbook and browsing through so many recipe options.

 

I settled on something Hearty…

The Hearty Zucchini Cake with Lemon Icing was bursting with nuts and fruits and vitamin packed zucchini, the cake itself dense and hearty. The lemon icing was the kicker-it offered the perfect amount of zing and sweetness and tied right into the cake. I really could eat this all day! (Recipe found here!)

I settled on something Sweet…

The Strawberry Peach Tart, which could be made with just about any fruit, was so close to perfection I wondered why I shouldn’t make this every week. I must have devoured 3 slices with my coffee the morning I made it. The crust was especially flaky and buttery and melted in my mouth and the fruit was just tart enough with the perfect amount of sweetness. Some fresh whipped cream on top finished it off nicely. (Recipe found here!)

I settled on something Spicy…

This unique Spice Rub can be made in advance and rubbed on just about any meat before it hits the grill. I chose Tri Tip for this particular rub, which consisted of Asian spices, fresh herbs, ground chiles and lemon zest. It was pretty good! (Recipe found here!)
