peach tart

Mason jars are all the rage and I’m totally caught up in the wave. I stumbled upon a ‘Pin’ using Mason jar rims as mini tart forms. Well, to my surprise, this pin actually worked.

1 large ripe peach, sliced into 8 pieces
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon honey
a sprinkling of ginger

Toss and allow peaches to macerate

Preheat oven to 400° F

1/2 cup AP flour
pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons butter, unsalted, cold, cut into small pieces
4 teaspoons water, ice cold

In a food processor combine flour, sugar, and salt
cut in butter
add water

Dump crumbly dough onto a piece of plastic wrap
pulling up the corners, form a mass
wrap tightly and refrigerate for about 30 minutes

Place the lid rims onto a parchment or silicone covered cookie sheet

When the dough has rested
cut into 3 or 4 even pieces
push the dough into the forms with your fingers
fill the dough with the fruit slices
drizzle the liquid over the fruit

Bake for 15-20 minutes

Let cool slightly before attempting to remove tarts from forms

On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
