I made little baby pies!
Aren't they adorable?! I prefer all of my food to be as cute as possible. It's a total bummer that there is so much ugly food. AND, a lot of the time, the ugly food is the best tasting food. I think it should be illegal for good food to be ugly. Actually, it should be illegal for food to be ugly at all!
These little tarts, just like the truffles that I shared on Wednesday, were made many weeks ago. I was anticipating being in school and being extremely busy, and I thought it would be great to have a couple of recipes all baked and photographed and ready to go, in case of emergency. You know, in case there was a week when I was slammed with homework and studying. But, I'm not in school and I have more time on my hands then I ever expected to have.
And somehow, I'm less productive than I've ever been. This happens to me all the time. It's frustrating and confusing, so I'm drowning my troubles in food. Like always. I only wish that I actually had one of these little tarts, but like I said, they've been gone for months. If I'm recalling correctly, the tarts were delicious. Sweet and fresh with a nice crumbly topping. OH, and they were really phenomenal with a little vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
Peach Crumble Tarts
6 mini graham tart shells
2 cups diced, peeled peaches
juice of half a lemon
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons quick oats
4 tablespoons melted butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the tart shells on a baking sheet; set aside.
In a bowl, combine peaches, lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch; toss to coat evenly. Divide the filling into six portions and scoop each portion into a tart shells.
In another bowl, whisk together sugar, brown sugar, flour and oats until combined. Add melted butter and mix until moistened and coarse crumbs form. Sprinkle evenly over the tarts. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Cool on the pan. Serve warm or cool.
I love a good cute lil tart like this one!
