Cheers: Rustic Peach Tart


The Fourth of July is almost upon us (how is it July already?). I don’t know about you, but I am always game for quick and easy summer recipes around this holiday. Something that allows me to jet back from the lake and throw it all together without slaving all day.

Its so easy, in fact, that it is actually a recipe recommended to do with your children. I adapted the recipe from Nugget Market’s Easy Peach Tart for Kids in the Kitchen.

Easy Peach Tart by Nugget Market


  • 1 package Pillsbury Pie Crusts*
  • 4 yellow peaches
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 pinches ground cloves


Preheat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.

Cut peach flesh away from pit, then slice into wedges.

Combine peach slices in a bowl with brown sugar, cinnamon and cloves.

Remove pie crust from package and unroll onto parchment paper.

Spoon peach mixture into a pile in the center of the dough.

Use hands to fold the outside edges of the dough up and around the peaches, leaving about a 4-inch circle of peaches exposed. Use a pastry brush and brush the remaining peach juice-sugar mixture in the bowl onto the outside of the pie crust.

Bake in oven 30 minutes. Remove promptly; let cool for 1 to 1½ hours before serving. Great with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
