After last weeks very fun but c-r-a-z-y weekend in Princeton I am looking forward to some rest and relaxation.

Juicy peaches + plump blueberries + flaky crust + vanilla… sounds pretty amazing, right?!

Spoiler Alert: IT IS AMAZING!

Easy Blueberry Peach Tart with Vanilla Glaze The number one thing I love about this recipe? It’s so forgiving and easy. <—- I guess that’s actually two things, but you know what I mean?!? With this recipe you can take a deep breath, let the panic go, and really enjoy the whole process of making this dessert because the crust is already made for you; pastry puff, my friends, is such a wonderful thing! You will need to let the pastry puff thaw for 15-20 minutes before folding it out, so keep that in mind when planning to bake this. After that you’ll just fold it out, fill it with fruit, and bake it to sweet golden perfection.

This Blueberry Peach Tart will get you all the ooohs and aaaahs without any of the labor called for in traditional pie making. It’s a beautiful thing. Especially when you’re not in the mood to pump that elbow grease 😉

A fresh and fruity tart loaded with peaches and blueberries. Topped with a vanilla glaze, this tart is perfection!

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet of puffed pastry, thawed for 20 minutes
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 large peaches, peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • For the Vanilla Glaze:
  • 1 cup of confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of milk OR heavy cream, more if needed to achieve desired consistency

Instructions

  1. Remove 1 sheet of puffed pastry from the freeze; thaw for 15-20 minutes at room temperature, or until it can easily be unfolded without cracking.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°(F). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  3. In a small bowl combine the egg and water; beat until well combined; set aside.
  4. Thinly slice peaches and place them in a large mixing bowl. Add in the sugar, salt, cinnamon, and cornstarch; toss well ensuring all peaches and are coated in the cinnamon sugar mix; set aside.
  5. Gently unfold the puffed pastry. If it does crack, gently press the tears back together and mend with slightly wet fingers.
  6. Place puffed pastry on prepared baking sheet.
  7. Layer the peaches evenly (and very tightly) on the puffed pastry, making 3 tidy rows, leaving a 1" border around the pastry. Sprinkle the blueberries on top.
  8. Lightly brush exposed pastry crust with egg wash.
  9. Bake for 16-18 minutes, rotating once during baking, or until the crust is puffed up and golden brown and the peaches are tender.
  10. While the tart bakes, make the vanilla glaze!
  11. In a small bowl combine the confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and cream; whisk until smooth, adding more cream as needed to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over the tart right before serving.
  12. Serve warm with vanilla glaze and maybe even a scoop of ice cream!?

Notes

Be sure to leave a one inch boarder around the tart, this helps ensure the edges don't get soggy.

    Hi – I tried this tart last night – it was a hit -everyone loved it. My question is this. The instructions say to peel the peach but the picture looks like the peel is still on the peach. It would save SO much time if I did not need to peel the peach. Can you tell me – do you think it will come out as well if I don’t peel the peaches next time? Also I let the dessert sit for a while before I cooked it as I was hosting a party and needed it to be ready – and the middle did not flake up much – do you think it might be getting too soggy?

      I just made two of these, and I have to say I hope they taste better the they look. The peaches released too much juice and there is pooling juice everywhere and the does is not what I expected, light or fluffy. I think this recipe needs some work but not sure where. Sorry.

    This was so good! It was even better than I hoped it would be. Next time I may use fewer peach slices though, as it seemed too heavy for the middle and too juicy. And I’ll need to make two–one for me, and one for the rest of my family. :)
