TWD - Crunchy & Custardy Peach Tart

According to The Foodimentary Guy, August is National Peach Month and today, August 24, is National Peach Pie Day.  That makes this week's selection of Crunchy and Custardy Peach Tart, damn near perfect.  Thanks, Rachel!  Make sure you visit her site, Sweet Tarte, for the recipe.

Confession time.....I made a rookie mistake this week.  I got a little cocky and didn't read the directions all the way through before I popped this into the oven.  Seems you weren't supposed the add the streusel topping until about 30 minutes into the baking process.  Oopsie.  It was still really delicious, but I'm sure I lost some of the crunch factor by not FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS!

I topped mine with a little Amaretto spiked whipped cream.  Might have gone a little overboard with the Amaretto because it was a little on the boozy side, but when has too much booze ever been a bad thing?  Right, Lindsay Lohan?

I know I say this every week, but you need to make this.  It's good.


  1. looks so professional and beautiful. great fanning out of the peaches. xoxo Tia

  2. Hahaha well in your defense--there were a lot of instructions to follow! Amaretto whipped cream sounds amaaaazing (though I don't think LL will be allowed any in rehab...). Thanks for baking with me this week!

  3. Looks great! Perfect that today is National Peach Pie Day! It's looks like you made it even better with a little booze.

  4. Wonderful slice !!! I'm sure it was delicious !

  5. Was good with whipped cream. Bet it was even better with spikd whipped cream.
