Because requests poured in wanting to know how to make the above pictured peach tart, this is my spin & adaptation!
Make your pie crust or use quality frozen pie shells, roll out & place on parchment paper lined baking sheet or into a deep dish pie plate.
Filling: 1/2 cup whipped cream cheese, 1/2 cup ricotta cheese, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 egg yolk (reserving the egg white) 1 teaspoon of vanilla. If you like texture, add in some crushed raw almonds & blend all together.
Thinly slice your fruit of choice: peaches, nectarines, plums, apples.
Place filling on pie dough, spreading out in a circular shape, leaving a good inch of dough edge to roll up over the fruit & cheese mixture.
Next place fruit slices on top, roll up edge of pie crust & brush with egg white.
Bake in a 400 oven for about 30-35 minutes, until pie crust edge is golden. Remove from oven, partially cool, & glaze top with lemon curd!
Bon appetite to lip smacking scrumptiousness! Super simple! : )
A bucket of steamers thoroughly enjoyed and consumed with a slurp, leaves a jumble of soft hued shells behind. The shapes, and variegated texture hold a uniqueness of their own that's fascinating to me.

"Tail Waggin' Tutor" Goldendoodle Sky & Pat deliver a good game of 'fetch the ball' at Corporation beach.... making a difference.
"Tail Waggin' Tutors" dig paws into video visits & stay connected with the elementary school children. Yay!
Now handlers with their "Tail Waggin' Tutors" read storybooks to the children promoting warmth with a positive message via video. The video visits benefit everyone, by maintaining the connections which had previously been established with our furry friends at school. Enjoy some of the artistic videos below! We continue our work thanks to the members & dogs of "Therapy Dogs International, Cape Chapter #253
who generously participate & show true grit of spirit. Thank you!
