No Bake Peach Tart from Ask Chef Dennis
I thought it might be fun to start a new type of blog post, one where I feature another food blogger's recipe prepared Noob-style rather than showcasing something I've gotten from a cookbook or tv celebrity. Maybe someday I'll be skilled, talented, and imaginative to invent my own dishes...
So my first Guest Recipe of No Bake Peach Tart comes from Chef Dennis from More Than a Mount Full - A Culinary Journey. I saw this a few weeks ago and made a mental note that I had to make use of the buck-a-pound peaches that have invaded the baskets of the local farmers markets. I also thought it might be cool to make a tribute to More Than a Mount Full, where Chef Dennis has made tremendous efforts to help get food blogging newbs like myself off to a good start in communities like Foodbuzz.
So here goes:
The pie crust goes into the oven at 350 - mine took about 25 minutes and it could have been a little bit more done. Chef Dennis's suggests for his crust recipe that it takes about 10-12 minutes and to use something to weigh it down such as cutting a round of parchment paper and filling it with dried beans.
I wasn't going to get too fancy about slicing them, I just made thin slices. I even debated about peeling them, but in the end I did because I thought chewing the peels might be unpleasant in the end-product.
Lastly, heat some peach preverses in a small saucepan until they're syrupy liquid and brush (or spoon) over the top of the peaches. I was a little worried about putting hot liquid on cold cheese and having the cheese melt or curdle, but with a little care that didn't happen.
Special thanks to Chef Dennis for his recipe and for his helpful Ask Chef Dennis posts over the years. He is moving/upgrading his blog, and I wish him success and luck and his new adventure!
