Peaches, raspberries and brie cheese make a seriously irresistible combination! This fruit tart is sweet, gooey, light and beautiful.
This time of year our countertops and fridge are always bursting with fruit. Thankfully my boys love fruit because they do not, ahem, love vegetables (to my great dismay). So I load up on the juicy, colorful fruits. And I'm always thinking up new ways to combine fruit and baking because I'm kinda in love with both. Separately, but mostly together. Raspberries and peaches are one of my favorite combos in the world, maybe second to blueberries and peaches. Or lemons and blueberries. This Raspberry Peach Tart seemed like the perfect little summer dessert to throw together this week. It is: fruity (obviously), light, gooey, satisfying, crispy, sweet and sooooo yummy.
If the combination of cheese and fruit throws you off, may I beg you to put those qualms aside. Brie is a soft, sweet cheese that tastes great when paired with other sweet things such as raspberries and peaches. The puff pastry sheets, when baked, turn into soft-crispy vessels of deliciousness that will sufficiently deliver the sweetness into your salivating mouth.
While I'm partial to the peaches and raspberries, feel free to replace them with other fruits you may have on hand. Rhubarb? Blueberries? BLACKberries (YUM)? Strawberries? Apples? I might have to create a few more variations in the very near future.
