Embrace fruits in season~

The peaches are wonderful this season! Try whipping up a sensational dessert with very few ingredients along with very little effort!

The tart is made from 3 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced and tossed with heated peach preserves.

The crust is: 1 1/2 cups of flour.
                     7 Tablespoons of cold, unsalted butter.
                     1/2 Cup of ice cold water.
                     A dash of salt, extra flour for rolling out on your surface.

All prepared using a food processor~ processing the flour and slowly adding the chunks of butter until it looks like cornmeal, then streaming in the cold water until the dough forms into a ball shape from the processor. Remove the dough and place on a floured surface and roll into an 8 inch disc. Chill the dough disk for 1 hour. Remove and roll out a few inches more giving you enough room to fill with all the sliced fruit. Add  the peach filling, turning in the edges of the pastry and bake on cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper for 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until  crust is lightly browned.... not much to it! Enjoy!
