Below makes 5-6 tarts. We recommend to double the recipe!!
What you will need:
- 1 puff pastry; thawed
- 2 large peaches; sliced paper thin
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. butter
- dash of vanilla extract
- 1.5 tbsp. cream
Prep Time: 30 minutes ◊ Cook Time: 45 minutes
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Cut peaches into paper thin slices. The thinner you are able to slice the easier you will be able to roll your tarts.
- On a floured surface, roll out puff pastry into a “square” shape approximately ¼ inch thick.
- Cut your rolled pastry into 2.5 inch strips.
- Heat a small saucepan to low heat, then add brown sugar, butter, vanilla and cream. Continually stir until melted and well combined. Keep saucepan on the heat and continue to whisk for 6-8 minutes or until caramel consistency thickens. Turn off the heat but keep caramel warm. (if caramel becomes hard add a dash of water and stir).
- One by one brush caramel sauce onto each pastry strip. Covering the top half of each, from end to end.
- Lay sliced peaches along the top of pastry strip, skin side towards the top and have them overlap slightly. Then create a second layer of peaches slightly below your first layer. Fold the bottom half of the pastry up over the bottom layer of peaches.
- Beginning with the end closest to you, gently roll pastry strip and peaches away from you and into itself until fully enclosed. You may need to add a dab of caramel at the end to seal the pastry roll together.
- Place tarts into a greased muffin tin and bake for 45 minutes until golden brown and flakey.
- Run a knife around the outside of the muffin pan to gently loosen tarts and carefully pop them out. Let cool completely on a wire rack. For an added decorative flare, sprinkle with icing sugar just before serving!
