Christy Rost's Colorado Peach and Blueberry Rustic Tart

 

Pastry

1 ½ cups flour

1 tablespoon sugar

¾ teaspoon salt

10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter

4-5 tablespoons ice water

 

Place flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor and pulse several times to mix.  Slice cold butter into ½-inch cubes, add to flour mixture, and pulse until the butter is pea-size.  Add ice water and process just until the pastry begins to form a ball.  Remove the pastry, form it into a disc, wrap it in plastic wrap, and chill at least 30 minutes or overnight.

 

Filling

6 large, ripe peaches, rinsed

1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, rinsed

½ cup sugar

2 tablespoons flour

¼ teaspoon Saigon cinnamon

1 egg, for egg wash

1 tablespoon water, for egg wash

2 teaspoons sparkling or granulated sugar, for garnish

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice peaches into a large bowl with their skins intact and add blueberries.  In a small bowl, stir together sugar, flour, and cinnamon; add it to the fruit mixture and stir gently to combine.

On a floured pastry cloth or counter, roll the pastry into a 14-inch circle.  Fold it in half, transfer it to a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, unfold the pastry, and turn up edges of the paper to catch any juices that overflow.

Mound the fruit filling into the center of the pastry and gently fold the edges of the pastry up around the filling, overlapping them to form a round tart.  Take care the pastry doesn’t tear at the base of the tart or juices will escape during baking.

In a small bowl, whip egg and water with a fork to form an egg wash.  Gently brush the egg wash over the pastry and sprinkle with sparkling sugar.  Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.

Yield: 1 tart, 8 servings
