Peach Tarte Tatin

Don't be intimidated by the name.  This is quite easy to make.  Peaches are going strong right now, as a result I choose to use them.  You can use whatever fruit is in season.  By using a sweet fruit you are able to limit the amount of sugar you use and still enjoy a dessert.  Eating items like this in moderation can fit into your healthy lifestyle.  Enjoy the sweet fruit of summer!


Peach Tarte Tatin

5 or 6 peaches, peeled and sliced (leave one half of a peach whole)
2 tbsp. water
1 1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1/2 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
pastry crust for a single crust pie (use you favorite recipe)

Heat a 9" frying pan with an oven proof handle over medium heat.  Add the water, lemon juice and sugar.  Stir and bring to a simmer.  Allow to simmer, without stirring, for 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla.  Place the peach half in the center on the pan cut side down.  Arrange the sliced peaches around the peach half.  Return to the heat and bring to a simmer.  Allow to simmer for 10 minutes.  Cover the peaches with the pastry crust and tuck it in around the peaches.  Place in an oven that has been preheated to 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown.  Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes.  Run a knife around the edge of the crust to make sure it does not stick to the pan.  Place a plate over the pan and carefully flip the tarte tatin onto the plate.

It can be eaten warm, room temp. or cold.  You can top it with frozen creek yogurt, coconut cream or eat it plain.  Just enjoy it!

You can use another sweetener.  Just keep in mind it will not caramelize the same as what you see in the photo.  Also, if you use a fruit that is not as soft as peaches, you need to allow them to simmer longer on the top of the stove.

This is a photo from my favorite place to get peaches in our area.  Take advantage of your local produce. It is fresher and as a result more nutrient dense.  These peaches are so good!
