GF Puff Pastry Peach Tarts

GF Puff Pastry Peach Tarts

These fruit tarts are quick and easy to make. You can use most fruit, e.g. pears, apples, peaches, or nectarines. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or sugar glaze if desired.

Baking puff pastry tarts upside-down works for two main reasons: the caramelization of the fruit and the crispiness of the puff pastry.

I use Gee Free gluten free puff pastry that I purchased at Whole Foods. There is another I have used called Schar Puff Pastry Dough, but I have to buy wholesale online. I really like them both. You can also make your own too.

Customizing Your Upside-Down Puff Pastries

To make your own caramelized upside-down puff pastries, you can follow a basic formula: sugar + produce + puff pastry + egg wash. The sugar aids in the caramelization and could be granulated sugar, brown sugar, honey, maple syrup or agave. To add even more flavor, place cheese, herbs or spices on top of the produce before laying down the puff pastry.

To bake the pastries, I recommend starting for 20 minutes at 350 degrees, though you may need more time to achieve optimal caramelization. And be sure to try out some of our favorite desserts and appetizers using any leftover puff pastry!

Savory Upside-Down Puff Pastry Tarts

For a savory rendition of the puff pastry treat, you can drizzle olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and maple syrup onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Then top with any mixture with a slice of onion, a sprinkle of fresh thyme leaves, salt, pepper, and finally the rectangle of puff pastry. As with the sweet rendition, she crimps the edges down and applies an egg wash before baking. Honesty any mixture would work, and it will be delicious.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and bring it down to 350 after 15 minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pour about 2 tablespoons of honey into a 2×3 inch rectangular shape on to the parchment paper.  Arrange 1/6 of the peach slices over the honey.  
  • Lightly roll out the puff pastry sheet and cut into 6 rectangles. Place 1 pastry rectangle over the peach slices and press down to seal in the fruit.  Repeat process with remaining honey, peaches, and pastry.  Brush each pastry with egg. 
  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and flaky, 18 to 20 minutes.

How to store Peach Puff Tarts

These pastries are to be served fresh because that’s when the pastry is extra flaky and crispy. It’s also a small batch recipe, so you’re left with probably no leftovers but just in case, store the tarts in a cool temperature airtight container for up to 2 days. I found that when they’re stored in the fridge, the puff pastry loses a lot of the crispness.

If you have a toaster oven, warm these back up to revive some of the flakiness. You could also bake on a sheet tray for a few minutes in a 300F oven.
