1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

 *Substitute 1 (16-ounce) bag frozen sliced peaches, thawed, well-drained. Pat frozen peach slices dry with paper towels thoroughly before placing in tart.

How to make

This was a huge hit at a Christmas attended by nearly 50 people. I used vanilla extract instead of almond extract and added a dash of it in the custard. I used peaches I'd grown in my front yard and frozen. Drying the thawed peaches with paper towels is essential. It was a very easy crust, quite light and buttery flavored. I covered the edges of the crust with foil while the filling baked. All my remaining frozen peaches will probably be used this way. It's that good and easy.

This was very easy to make but the almond extract is overpowering. I would eliminate the almond extract all together so the peaches flavor can be appreciated. The almond was way too strong.

It is an easy tart to make. I add some almod milk to the crust and ground almond. I made it with whole wheat flour, in the filling too. The top got like a brown crust over. It just did ot look like the recipe

The recipe may look different with the substitutions you had made. Whole wheat flour acts differently in the recipe, which could explain the variation in the appearance.

I love to make tarts and this one is a favorite. It's easy to make. I add 2 tablespoons of ground almonds to the crust and sprinkle a little cinnamon over the peaches. Its real easy to make with frozen peaches.

Excellent recipe! Made a few modifications and still got a wonderful result. I didn't use neither almond extract nor almonds. I used vanilla extract both in the dough and custard. Added bit of lemon juice in the custard and some lemon zest on top of the peaches. Used crème fraîche instead of whipped cream and fresh unpeeled nectarines instead of peaches. Quite a few modifications, and yet excellent pie. :)
