In this post: 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 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 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 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.
Tip: If you don’t have self-rising flour, regular flour can be used. Just add 3 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt.
This 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.
After I tasted this crust, I wondered if this recipe could be used to make biscuits. I have tried (and failed miserably) to make fluffy biscuits in my cast iron skillet. I will give it a go and if they’re any good, I’ll let you know!
