Ingredient Notes For These Easy Peach Apricot Tarts:

  • Fruit – The star of the show is the fresh peaches! Well, all of these components come together to make this dessert a big star. So it doesn’t matter what type of peach you use–yellow or white–just be sure to get the peaches. 😉 Also, you do not need to remove the skin.
  • Preserves – For this recipe I like to use the Bonne Maman® Apricot Preserves. Believe you me, it is divine with the peach flavor.
    • Do not add too much of the preserves to the pastry, or the middle will not cook all the way through, resulting in a slightly soggy tart. I recommend no more than 1 1/2 tsp per piece. That may seem like a very small amount, but it is perfect in the end.
  • Puff Pastry – Either the kind shown below or a vegan version will work just fine here.
    • Pro Tip: Be sure to prick the pastry with a fork, to ensure that it won’t “puff up” during the cooking process. If you skip this step, all of the toppings will run off and that is no fun.
  • Herbs – One of my favorite herbs is thyme. Before you count this out, give it a try with this tart. It gives the dessert a fun earthy element that it otherwise wouldn’t have.

Equipment

  • Parchment paper

Ingredients

  • 1 box 2 Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed, cut into 6 rectangles each
  • 1 10 oz jar Bonne Maman® Apricot Preserves 
  • 2 tbsps Fresh Thyme Leaves (use 1 tbsp per sheet)
  • 4 Peaches, thinly sliced (use 2 peaches per sheet)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for drizzling
  • Flaky Salt, for topping
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • Beeyond The Hive Wildflower Honey, for drizzling

Instructions

  • Thaw the puff pastry according to package directions; about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll out the dough slightly and cut each sheet of puff pastry into 6 equal rectangles and prick with a fork. Transfer to the baking sheet.
  • Spread each rectangle with 1 1/2 teaspoons of apricot preserves, leaving a 1/4 inch border. Sprinkle with most of the fresh thyme. 
  • Arrange the peach slices over the apricot preserves, pressing them down to adhere slightly. Drizzle lightly with oil and season with salt.
  • Fold the edges of the pastry inward to enclose and crimp with a fork. Brush the edges of the pastry with beaten egg. 
  • Transfer to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown. 
  • Top with honey and the remaining thyme. 
  • Enjoy immediately! 

Notes

  • Puff Pastry: If your baking sheet isn’t big enough then you may need to use two separate baking sheets. If so, be sure to rotate the pans halfway through the cooking time for more even baking. 
  • Peaches & Thyme: Use two peaches per puff pastry sheet, and use one tablespoon fresh thyme per sheet.
