I got my hands on some peaches (probably the last for this season). I couldn’t help but celebrate summer one last time . Even if the weather wasn’t with me at the party, I had great fun. All because of this mini-peach-tartlets that I invented. I once read this great saying: “The master shines in the scarcity of resources.” This stuck with me. I love to create with things that I already have and not go out and buy everything. Using what you have is my approach when it comes to crafting but also cooking/baking. So when I found out that I don’t have any butter at home (how could that happen?!). I didn’t give up on the idea to make tartlets.
I’m very glad I didn’t because these fuckers are delicious as hell! (Swearing emphasizes my point!)
All you need is:
– 250 g flour
– 125 g sugar
– 200 g cream cheese
– 1 tsp baking powder
– 1 Tbsp Vanille sugar
– 1 egg
– 3 peaches
For this peach tartlet recipe put all ingredients (besides the peaches of course) into a bowl and knead until you get a smooth dough. Let it rest for 1/2 hour and preheat the oven to 175° C meanwhile. Peel the peaches and cut in half and then in slices. Form the dough into balls and press them on a baking tray (it helps if there’s a little mold in the middle).
Put the peach slices on top and bake for 35 mins until golden brown. Take out of the oven and sieve some powder sugar on top.
Now comes the best part: eating them!
Because of the cream cheese they are moist and delicious without being to heavy.
I actually promised my sister the plum marzipan cake but I couldn’t do it without butter. She was pretty disappointed, so I might have to make it for her today. Well it’s the weekend anyway and there’s no better excuse to eat cake!
My boyfriend wasn’t at home when I made this peach tartlets and so these became my dinner. I ate 3 in total with some fruit tea…. yum! And there’s some fruit and some proteins and all so it’s fairly healthy. What’s your favourite meal when you are eating alone?
Now. Carry on!
I’m so sad that peach season is almost over! I think we had our last batch last week, as the more recent ones were kind of mealy and gross. This looks so lovely….mmmm. Mail some to me? Haha!
It might be a surprise: they are all gone already. Even if I wanted to, I couldn’t mail them to you… 😉
they look yummy!
