A CookTale

In this kitchen dessert is a constant challenge. We are not big dessert fans. The exception, of course, is dinner parties, and there too, I opt for the easy way out. Prepared Puff Pastry, available almost everywhere, is my panacea, be it a sweet fruit tart or a savory vegetable tart. The ability to create taste worthy dishes are boundless and impressive.


1 Sheet of frozen Puff Pastry dough (thawed for 20 minutes)
2 Cups of sliced Peaches (from 4 medium-size Peaches)
Flour for working with the Puff Pastry
2 TB of Butter
1 TB of Granulated Sugar + Powdered Sugar
Whipped Cream or Ice Cream or (for serving)


1. Place the thawed Puff Pastry on a floured baking sheet, unfold the Puff Pastry & roll it to a 8″ X 12″ rectangle. Working quickly, & keeping the Puff Pastry well floured, cut it into four 3″ X 8″ pieces. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes.

3. Slice the Peaches (skin on or removed) into a small bowl & add the Lemon Juice & Sugar. Carefully place the slices of Peaches overlapping down the center of each Pastry rectangle, leaving a 1/2″-inch border around the edges. Dot the top of the peaches with the Butter. Sprinkle the Puff Pastry & the Peaches with the reserved 1 TB of Sugar.

3. Place the rack in the center & preheat the oven to 400°F. Add the baking sheet & bake the Puff Pastry Tarts for 15 minutes, or until puffy & well browned.

4. Remove & allow to cool. Sprinkle with Powdered Sugar & prepare to plate.

5. Serve with Whipped Cream or Ice Cream.
