Sweet Treat

Welcome back from what I hope was a relaxing weekend.  Hubby and I stayed close to home with puppy Libby.  Saturday, my sweet tooth got the better of me and I decided to bake something.  

I had some tart dough in the freezer and defrosted that for the basis of what would be a free-form or rustic tart.

Fruit inventory yielded 4 small peaches, 2 apricots, a handful of blueberries and about 8 raspberries.  I peeled the peaches and sliced them with the apricots and tossed all the fruit in a bowl with 1/4 cup sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch, and about 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. 

I rolled out the dough on a wooden pizza peel sprinkled with cornmeal.  The fruit went in the center of the dough and I turned the edges of the dough up and over the fruit to contain it.  A little egg wash on the dough and I slid the tart onto a preheated pizza stone in a 400 degree oven.

Topped off with some homemade strawberry ice cream... my sweet tooth was satisfied.

Have a great week.
