Recipe: Fresh peach tart with puff pastry and almond cream
Some time ago I brought this tart with puff pastry, fresh peaches and almond cream to a picnic on the beach.
It is extremely easy to make and also very quick (provided you already have some spare puff pastry)! But the reason I chose it was that it is also perfect to carry in “extreme conditions” (e.g. to a beach with no cooler nor proper container) 🙂
It is best served warm, but it can even be stored at room temperature and it’s a tasty way to eat fruits in summer.

Fresh peach tart with almond cream
|3||Fresh peaches or nectarines|
|30g||Unsalted butter (melted)|
|Powdered sugar (as needed)|
- You can serve this tart with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, for example, to create a nice contrast of temperatures for this dessert
- Your fruits must be quite ripe as this will enhance the flavour of the finished tart
- Don't exaggerate with the almond cream as it might cover the flavour of the fruits (i.e. pipe less cream than in my picture!) 🙂
