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.

  • Add flour to oil/water. Stir until combined. Dough will be rather wet but will hold together and pull away from the sides of the bowl.

  • Using as much extra flour as needed, roll dough into a 10 to 11 inch circle.

Notes

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.

    The peach tart sounds wonderful, love the picture of it out of the oven. The recipe does simple and quick to prepare. Thanks for sharing, this has given me an idea!

  4. Looks delicious and an easy recipe.

    Ann,
    I made your rustic peach tart and it was easy and delicious. I made it a second time and did not have as many peaches, so I added blueberries and strawberries to the peaches. That was delicious too. I may try it with apples sometime later this fall. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It’s a keeper!~

  6. Oh, my gosh, that looks delicious! I never get enough good peaches during the season. It seems like the ones I’ve purchased in the grocery store don’t ever ripen, they just rot, but are as hard as when you bought them. I’ve gotten some organic peaches this year and they have been delicious, but too expensive to buy many. I just remember when I lived at home my mom would go to a local orchard every summer to buy a bushel of peaches to can–and later freeze–and we would have at least one peach cobbler to eat and just sliced peaches with a little sugar sprinkled on for a quick dessert. Yum, they were so, so, yummy! I might have to go over budget and buy five or six of the organic ones to make a peach cobbler! Thanks for the recipe!

    Thanks, i can’t wait to try it. My family went to a orchard and picked peaches together,we let my granddaughter pick the ones closets to the ground, we had a great time together and so i put peaches in the freezer. Thanks for this recipe will be useful.

  8. Stephanie says:

    An observation: Martha’s recipe uses 1/3 cup oil; your recipe calls for2/3 cup oil.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Yes, you are correct. I doubled the recipe!

  12. This rustic tart will be on our menu for the weekend. Having tried many of your recipes, we’ve yet to be disappointed with any . Thanks for sharing. I have an easy no yeast pizza crust I’ll share when I have more time . came to me from a young neighbor guy. Blessings for this day.

  13. Looks like another winner of a recipe Ann! Your recipe posts make every recipe look so simple which motivates me to try them. Beautiful photos as usual. Thank you.

  14. Sandi Weiler says:

    If I wasn’t going work this morning I would definitely be making this. This looks divine and I ant wait to try. I’ll bet there is a way to do Apple this way. We’ll have to experiment.

    Thanks Ann
