Rustic Peach Tart Recipe with Self-Rising Flour Crust: easy dessert that

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.

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.
