Mini Peach Puff Pastry Tarts with Honey


Description

Sweet and simple peach puff pastry tarts tossed with wild honey and a hint of vanilla. This easy summer dessert stars juicy, fresh peaches, and takes advantage of store-bought frozen puff pastry. Recipe from forkknifeswoon.com


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 medium peaches,¹ halved, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp pure honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 (14 oz) sheet store-bought frozen puff pastry,² defrosted overnight in the refrigerator
  • optional: 1 Tbsp demerara sugar (or sanding sugar)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 ℉. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Lay out the puff pastry onto a clean, lightly floured work surface. Using a sharp knife or pastry wheel, cut the puff pastry into 12 equal squares. Transfer the squares to the prepared sheet pan.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, toss the sliced peaches with the honey and vanilla.
  4. Layer the peach slices on top of the puff pastry squares, leaving about a 3/4″ border around the edges. Sprinkle with the demerara sugar, if using.
  5. Bake until the crust is golden and the peaches are tender, about 15-17 minutes. Transfer to a baking rack to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, fresh whipped cream, a dusting of powdered sugar, or a drizzle of simple vanilla icing. Enjoy!!

Notes

¹ Replace the peaches with your favorite stone fruit: nectarines, plums, or a mix!

² It’s a little bit more expensive, but using a high-quality, all-butter puff pastry such as Dufour (available at specialty markets such as Whole Foods) makes a big difference in the overall flavor of these tarts. Also, store-bought puff pastry is easiest to work with if you let it slowly defrost in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours prior to baking.
