Mixed Berry and Peach Tart

After my recent return from Israel, I immediately went to the library and checked out a dozen baking books, the favorite of which so far has been Baking with Julia Child. I started by making her French apple tart, but decided it could be modified for use with the abundance of berries we had in our freezer. So with a little tinkering with ingredients, some help from my dad, here is what we got.

Crust from Baking with Julia


2 pints mixed berries
5 peaches
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. cornstarch

In a sauce pan, mix together berries, about 2 peaches cut into chunks, the sugar and the cornstarch. Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes until a nice sauce has formed around the berries and peaches. Allow to cool.

Once the berries are cool, pour into pie crust and cover with very thin slices of peaches.

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes.

And Voila!
