Why You’ll Love This Recipe

I’m in love with this beautiful, yet simple, Sweet Peach Tart. At first glance, you might think it’s difficult to make. But, nothing could be further from the truth. There’s no baking required!

It’s also as delicious as it looks. Which makes it perfect. 🙂

The Story Behind Sweet Peach Tart

My friend, Julia, asked me for a recipe made with peaches, and my mind immediately starting whirling. I’ve been wanting to make a fruit tart of some kind for a while now. Tarts are so pretty! (Almost too pretty to eat).

When I was little, my Momma made the most delicious desserts. Since she was an artist, everything that came out of her kitchen looked like a picture from a magazine.

This tart reminds me of Momma, and her incredible paintings. She’d be the first one to dig in if she could!

How to Make It

The base is a graham cracker crust, while the filling is made with cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and key lime juice. I added fresh, diced peaches to make it extra special.

As with most things in life, the fun starts with the garnish. Fresh summer peaches, strawberries and blueberries are the paint on this creamy canvas.

You can be as creative as you like…and even if you mess up, nobody will ever know.

Once the tart has been refrigerated for one hour, simply slice the fruit and start arranging it however you wish. I prefer placing it on one side, but you can cover the entire tart if you’re feeling sassy. 🙂

What Type of Dish Do I Use?

It’s easier to make this recipe in a tart pan or dish, but you can also use a pie plate if you don’t have a fancy vessel. You can even use a casserole dish, or your favorite bowl.

Whatever you do, just go for it….because this Sweet Peach Tart is worth every bite.

Here’s to summer…and sweet peaches!

Notes

Be sure to refrigerate the tart for at least 1 hour before decorating.

If you’re lucky, you’ll have leftover filling!  Make mini pies with the extra, or scoop it into a bowl and eat as is.

  1. This was stupendously delicious! After admiring this in pictures I finally got to taste it at my granddaughter’s birthday. Tastes better than it looks, if that’s possible. Love, love, love.
