Peach Tart

IMG_1202 IMG_1208 IMG_1209Friday is the weekend in Dubai, hot and humid outside, but luckily fresh and relaxing at home. This is also our weekly Fiesta Friday organized by our charming Angie from The Novice Gardener.

I love peaches one of my favorites fruits among many others. I like the color, the texture, this fine furry so pleasant to the touch as well as the smell and the juicy taste. I decided to bake a Tart with: pâte sablée, peaches and vanilla sugar. I hope you will like it!

Serves 4


  • 300g of wheat flour
  • 125g of soft butter
  • 100g of icing sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 25ml of water
  • 6 peaches
  • Vanilla sugar
  • Icing sugar for dust

Procedure: (For the crust/pâte sablée)


  • In a food processor, add the flour, the pinch of salt, the icing sugar, 1 egg and the soft butter.
  • Start to mix all the ingredients together until you assemble the dough.
  • Slowly add the water and continue to mix, until it holds like a ball.
  • The dough now is ready.
  • Wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and keep it into the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes remove the dough from the fridge.
  • Grease 4 individuals removable bottom tart pans (13 centimeters and 3 centimeters deep).
  • Dust with flour a clean surface.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge.
  • Cut in 4 equals balls the dough.
  • With a rolling pin, flatten the first ball of dough the size of your tart pan.
  • Add delicately the flattened dough into the tart pan.
  • Proceed the same way for the rest of the dough.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C degrees.
  • Wash and dry the peaches with a kitchen towel.
  • Cut in two and remove the pit.
  • Cut the peaches into thin slices.
  • Add a little of vanilla sugar into the bottom of your tart.
  • Place the sliced peaches on the top (as seen in the picture).
  • Sprinkle with vanilla sugar on the top.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or when the crust turn golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Dust with icing sugar for decoration.

The Tarte is excellent, sweet with peaches, the vanilla sugar melts with the juice of the peach and gives it a nice texture in mouth. I will certainly do it again before the end of peach season!

Bon Appetit.
