Early August is the beginning of Peach season in Louisiana. About two hours away is Ruston which is famous for their peaches. There is a peach orchard just down the road. So making this tart for TWD was not hard.

This week we, the Bakers of TWD, made Crunchy and Custardy Peach Tart which was Rachel of Sweet Tart‘s Pick.

There were so many sweets in the house the weekend I made this that I only made one itty bitty mini tart. But that itty bitty mini tart was very tasty!

I found one frozen shell, made 1/3 of the custard, used one perfect peach, and ended up with one perfect itty bitty tart.

We enjoyed the play of the almond and peach flavor. The crunchy nutty streusel topping was a nice match with the soft filling. We each had 1/2 of the itty bitty tart with a little whipped cream and extra peaches. (I did notice that the peach/custard layer was a little thin.)

As soon as the other sweets are gone I may just have to make this one again.

I know lots of the other TWD bakers liked this one. So go visit them. The recipe is on Rachel’s website. It is also in Dorie Greenspan’s Baking from My Home to Yours. You really SHOULD have this book on your kitchen book shelf. You won’t regret it.
