The Sunday Recipe: Peach Melba Tart

Peach Melba Tart

I’m a firm believer in making the most of what you have, and using up the little odds and ends before they can go bad. This week that meant part of a jar of Dole peaches in the fridge, half a package of peaches in the freezer, and a tiny bit of raspberries. I swear there was a peach melba ice cream when I was a kid and it was fantastic. Peach and raspberry is a match made in heaven.

Filling Ingredients

  • 16 ounces peach slices (defrost if frozen)
  • ¼ cup (or more) raspberries
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca flour plus 1 tablespoon water

Crust Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or other sweetener)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 ½ cups almond flour (about 160 grams)

Directions

  1. Dice or chop the peaches and combine with raspberries and maple syrup in a medium sized pot. Bring to a boil or a medium heat.
  2. Reduce to simmer for about 15 minutes.
  3. Add the tapioca flour mixed with water and stir well for about 30 seconds to thicken.
  4. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Preheat oven to 350.
  6. Melt the butter.
  7. Mix with maple syrup and salt.
  8. Add almond flour and combine.
  9. Press into a tart pan or square tin and up the sides a little.
  10. Bake for 8 minutes.
  11. Fill and bake for another 22 minutes.
  12. Cool and enjoy. (Vanilla ice cream is a perfect complement.)
