A Pie for My Parents ~ Peach and Blueberry Tart

7 Aug
Mom and Peach and Blueberry Tart

Mom and Peach and Blueberry Tart

I have been super-busy while my parents are visiting from Texas, and also have been cooking up a storm! I saw this beautiful tart my friend Suzanne over at A Pug in the Kitchen made a few weeks ago, and couldn’t wait to hit up our local farmer’s market to make this “pie” for my parents. Technically it’s a tart, but pie sounds so much cozier. (My daughter would disagree but that’s another story…)

Friday (I played hooky at work) and Saturday were beautiful, sunny days to hit up our local farmer’s markets, where I picked up peaches, blueberries, summer squash, pickling cucumbers (I made another batch of Spicy Refrigerated Dill Pickles), a Papadew pepper, and some flash-frozen Pacific Cod from the beautiful Oregon coast. I did find some tomatillos that I wanted , but they were very small so bought other ones at the local store (I made chicken enchiladas with Fire-Roasted Tomatillo Sauce). My mom also picked up a banana chocolate chip bread, which by all accounts was delicious.

I thought my mother would be a great model to present the “pie” for you, as I had a bit of an accident whereby our new dog Penny ripped a good portion of my skin off of my lower arm with her freshly-clipped paws. The groomers forgot to file them after clipping and WOW were they sharp! They’ve since been filed. (It was an ACCIDENT, she is not mean. I got between her and our other dog Hannah Banana who stole Penny’s stick, and was trying to give it back to Penny. Lesson learned!)

The original recipe called for 6 to 8 peaches, but 3 rather large ones fit the small, shallow pie pan I had.

Without further ado, here is how I made the pie:

Peach and Blueberry Tart
Adapted from Suzanne at A Pug in the Kitchen

Pie Dough and Tart

1 1/2 cups wheat flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
1/4 cup light olive oil
2 tablespoons half and half
3 large peaches (I used both white and yellow)
1/2 pint blueberries

Peach and Blueberry Filling

Peach and Blueberry Filling

Place the flour, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl, then add the oil and milk and mix with a fork until well combined.

Press into a shallow pie or tart pan with your fingers. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

Arrange the peaches in the pan around the sides and pour the blueberries in the middle. Place on the parchment-lined baking sheet (in case of drips).

Crumble Topping

3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons regular flour
2 tablespoons cold butter
Pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients in a bowl with your hands until it resembles fine crumbs. Distribute the crumbs on top of the tart and bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 45 minutes.

    Ouch, Kathryn. Shame on the groomers for neglecting something important. I hope it heals quickly. The tart looks delicious, and your mom is a lovely model. Great pic. So charming and it sets the homey tone for your delightful post.
    I just haven’t been able to get caught up. I think I’m off balance from an interview on Friday (job in Las Vegas with the US Attorney’s Office). You see, I put no stock at all into this one when I set the appointment. I was sure they were just going through the motions (even more common with gov jobs than corporate, following a legal requirement to advertise broadly); I thought it was going to be a waste of time. Then it went absolutely great! o_O
    Whatever the case I can’t catch up, and I haven’t even done the Guitar Mancer episode for next weekend. (I usually have 2 done by now.)
    But again, a perfectly lovely post from you. Huge hugs, my friend.

      Well my daughter insisted a tart has yogurt or cream at the bottom of it, but I found no indication that is so. I do know a tart only has a bottom crust but a pie can have both. Not too much more difference though.

        Here we wouldn’t (and couldn’t) sue for something like that, but the clichΓ© is that Americans do. A clichΓ© that is reinforced by tv shows of course. Still, I’m not sure I’d go back to the same groomer.

        I certainly won’t! I was extremely disappointed as we paid for the filing too. But by the time I found out it wasn’t done the damage was done… I’m too busy to worry about that sort of thing but just take care of myself in the meantime… I hate that Americans sue at the drop of a hat in the wrong place… I have a good life. πŸ™‚

Of course, I’m getting calls for strawberry rhubarb pie, which seems to be everyone’s favorite. Do you have a fool proof pastry crust recipe? I’ve tried many but never found one that was 1) easy and 2) foolproof.
