Rustic Peach Tart Recipe with Self-Rising Flour Crust: easy dessert that's simple enough for weeknight meals yet pretty enough for company!

Today’s rustic peach tart recipe was a very pleasant, unexpected surprise…and I hope you love it as much as I do! The homegrown peaches around here have been so good the past few weeks, so I’ve been buying them whenever I can. Some ripen quicker than others and it’s totally unpredictable. I recently found myself with four beautiful, but very ripe peaches that needed used ASAP. I decided to make a quick rustic peach tart, but discovered that I was completely out of flour. (Who does that?) I did, however, have a bag of self-rising flour. 

A quick google search led me to an easy recipe on marthastewart.com. It looked totally straight-forward so I decided to give it a go.

The dough went together quickly and easily. It’s a rather wet dough, but not so wet that you can’t manage it. I rolled it out on a piece of floured parchment paper and then slid the paper on to a baking sheet. If you wanted to use this dough recipe for a regular pie crust, just use a little more flour so it doesn’t stick to the parchment paper when you move it.

Rustic Peach Tart Recipe Tip:

If you don’t have self-rising flour, regular flour can be used. Just add 3 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt to 2 cups of all-purpose flour.

The oil and water can be heated in the microwave. Use a microwave safe vessel and watch very carefully. Stop the microwave the second it starts to boil. Mixture will pop and splash if allowed to boil.

This rustic peach tart recipe is sort of a cross between a cobbler and a pie crust. It puffs up because of the self-rising flour but it has that traditional pie crust taste and is incredibly moist.
