This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Rachel of Sweet Tarte: Crunchy and Custardy Peach Tart. I was excited about this week's pick because I love anything with baked fruit and I especially love anything with a streusel topping... so this tart was calling my name! :)
Instead of one large tart I had to make a mini tart because while my husband was out at the store picking up some things, I asked him to go ahead and get me three large peaches. I did specify on the list large peaches. What did he come home with? Three small peaches. Nothing is inherently wrong with small peaches, but it would have been nice if he had bought more peaches to compensate for the fact that these were small and not large. Not my dear husband, of course. He simply bought what I asked him to buy (sort of) - three peaches. So sadly, I had to settle for a smaller peach tart instead of a magnificent 9-inch tart! :(
I halved everything in this recipe, except for the streusel topping because you really can't have too much of a good thing :) In the end, I think the amount of topping was just right (although it did obscure my beautifully slices peaches). If I ever get around to making the full-sized version of this tart, I will definitely double the topping!
Thanks Rachel, for hosting this week. I loved this tart. The creamy custard had just a hint of almond that complemented the peaches perfectly. I think I'd choose this tart over a peach pie, any day.
