Saturn/Flat Peach Tartlets

These sweet little baked treats are very simple to make, you only need four ingredients. I chose to use flat peaches for this, more commonly known as saturn peaches. They’re sweeter than regular peaches, with a slight almond undertone. They’re also not nearly as fuzzy as regular peaches, so if that’s something you don’t like I’d definitely recommend saturn peaches. These tartlets would be perfect served with a little non dairy ice cream, or cream.

Yield; Ten tartlets (189kcal per tart) Cook time; 10-12 minutes

You’ll need;

  1. Four ripe flat peaches
  2. The juice of one lime
  3. 375g/13oz ready rolled puff pastry
  4. One tablespoon of icing sugar for dusting

Method;

  • Slice each peach in half then twist to separate, you should be able to just pluck out the stone with your hands, or use a knife if preferred. Slice the peaches into fairly thick slices. Sprinkle the lime juice over the sliced peaches, then use a spoon to gently stir them to make sure the lime juice is evenly distributed. This will ensure the peaches won’t oxidise and they’ll retain their colour
  • Preheat your oven to 220ºC/200ºC fan assisted/400ºF. Next unroll the pasty and use a 10cm/4″ pastry cutter to cut out 10 circles, you may need to roll pastry scraps back together and reroll to get all 10
  • Lay the pastry circles onto two lined baking trays and use a fork to prick some holes into the centre of each one. This will ensure the edges rise, keeping the peaches securely in the centre. Add six peach slices onto each and then pop into the oven. Bake at  for 10-12 minutes or until the pastry has risen and is golden
  • Once baked transfer the tartlets onto a cooling tray. After they’ve been cooling for about ten minutes use a sieve to dust them with the icing sugar, then they’re ready to serve
