~ Peach-Nectarine Tart ~


This is an old recipe from Southern Living. I love nectarines and peaches!  You may choose to use only peaches and that's fine.  Try some fresh peach ice cream with it or my favorite, just plain vanilla. Delish!

Peach-Nectarine Tart


  • 3/4 pound peeled nectarines, sliced 
  • 3/4 pound peeled peaches, sliced 
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup peach preserves
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 (15-oz.) package refrigerated pie crusts or your favorite recipe
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • large egg 
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper; coat parchment paper with cooking spray.
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together nectarines, peaches, and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Let stand 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Unroll piecrust on prepared baking sheet. Roll into a 12-inch circle.
  • Drain fruit mixture, reserving liquid. Toss nectarines and peaches in flour.
  • Mound nectarines and peaches in center of pie crust, leaving a 3-inch border. Fold pie crust border up and over fruit, pleating as you go, leaving an opening about 5 inches wide in center.
  • Stir together egg and 1 Tbsp. water. Brush pie crust with egg mixture, and sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. sugar.
  • Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until filling is bubbly and crust is golden. Carefully transfer tart on parchment paper to a wire rack; cool 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring reserved nectarine-peach liquid to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Boil 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Let cool slightly. Brush or drizzle 1 to 2 Tbsp. hot nectarine-peach liquid over exposed fruit in center of tart. Serve immediately with remaining nectarine-peach syrup, and, if desired, fresh whipped cream or ice cream.  Yum!

  2. Peaches are my favorite, the Western Slope in CO are known for their peaches and I'm always so anxious waiting for them to hit the stores. I'll have to try this, it looks delicious!

  4. i love the looks of a tart! so old fashioned looking, and rather "thrown-together-ish"... oh i know! it is _not_ just thrown together!!!!

    but it simply looks more casual, than a regular pie does. :-))))

  5. Pat, your tart looks wonderful. I was also thinking of making something similar since we had both fruits. I bet it is so yummy with vanilla ice cream. I am doing a happy dance over here, seeing you post again, my dear friend. xoxo
