Nicky’s peach tart

Ingredients for 8

• 1 tablespoon Armagnac
• Puff pastry (1 roll frozen)
1. Defrost pastry.
2. Preheat oven 175 – 180degrees C
3. Blend the almonds with a kitchen blender or place them between 2 layers of waxed paper and use a rolling pin to crush them into small pieces and place in a large bowl.
4. Put butter in blender and blend until smooth
5. Add sugar and blend
6. Add one egg and blend in until creamed
7. Add 2nd egg and blend until creamed in
8. Add the butter mixture to the blended almonds and stir in until fully mixed
9. Add tablespoon Armagnac and stir in
10. Spread the layer of pastry across a non-stick baking tray forming a large rectangle
11. Spread almond butter mixture across top of pastry leaving about an inch of pastry edge all round
12. Cut each peach in half (don’t peel), twist the two halves apart.
13. Remove the peach stone
14. Thinly slice peaches (about 1cm wide)
15. Layer peach slices over the butter mixture in long strips the length of the mixture, overlap each strip to fully cover mixture
16. Pull up edges of pastry all around mixture to form an edge
17. Sprinkle castor sugar lightly over all the peaches and pastry edge.
18. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden

This delicious tart can be served hot or cold accompanied by ice cream or crème fraiche. I recommend pairing with a glass of Lafontan Armagnac available from our French Market shop or order online.

Bon Appetit!
