I love the fact that I can take a quick driving break and pick up some healthy food at the same time. Take that, McDonalds!
During our most recent stop, I bought a basket of fresh peaches. They weren't giant peaches but petite yet shapely things. So pretty. So juicy.
For dinner, I decided to make a quick fruit tart using puff pastry. There are hardly any ingredients in this tart: peaches, sugar, apple pie spice, and puff pastry.
All I did was peel and cut the peaches and put them in a bowl, sprinkle them heavily with sugar and a little apple pie spice. While the peaches macerated in the bowl, I took out the puff pastry to defrost for 30 minutes.
When the pastry was defrosted, I cut the pastry in thirds, each third into four pieces, and then lined up the peaches on each one for 12 individual tarts. Alternately, you can make three long tarts out of each third. I threw the tarts in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes and we had one of the most lovely summer desserts we could wish for.
