So far this summer, the peaches  I have purchased have been transformed into margaritas. I knew the hubby was hankering for a peach dessert, so I whipped up this Streusel Topped Peach Tart. National Peach Month will be here soon!

The hubby was hinting around about “pie.” Peach pie to be exact. Have I told you how much I dislike making double-crust pies? A “pat in” tart crust is more my speed.

I toyed with adding a lattice crust till the dough strips fell apart in my hands. No way was I going to weave those! When I see desserts with a crumb topping, like this Streusel Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, I never fume, “Where the heck is that top crust????” Instead, my mouth starts to water. So streusel won out. Bill was a happy guy! And I was a happy, stress-free baker.

4th of July Recipes

I served this streusel-topped peach tart at our annual 4th of July gathering. The forecast was dreary so our party was moved indoors and the fireworks were nixed. We all squeezed into our home and I decked the tables in red, white and blue.

Everyone brought a dish to share and I baked up a storm. Frozen Grasshopper Pie, Homemade Samoas, Frosted Cocoa Brownies, and this luscious streusel-topped peach tart were my contributions. Everything was a huge hit!

Oh, yeah, I also made this Sour Cream Corn Dip which was devoured in record time (that’s what happens when you have 3 twenty-something-year-old young men for dinner). Bill requests it every year without fail. But I think desserts are traditionally the highlight of this summer party, and this scrumptious tart was the perfect addition.

My family goes nuts for the combination of peach and raspberries in desserts and this Peach Raspberry Crisp is super easy.  My Classic Peach Pie is a little more work, but worth the effort! If you’re looking for a cool treat, try this Fresh Peach Ice Cream. I’ve also put these Peach Hand Pies and this Peach Cake with Brown Sugar Frosting on my baking list.

Streusel Topped Peach Tart

A peach tart made with fresh summer peaches and topped with a buttery streusel.

Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 35 minutes
Yield 6 servings


Tart Dough:

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 egg yolks, whisked to break up

Peach Filling:

  • 4 peaches, peeled pitted and sliced about 1/2 inch wide
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Streusel Topping:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces


  1. Put the flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor and pulse a couple of times to combine.
  2. Scatter the pieces of butter over the dry ingredients and pulse until the butter is pea-sized or smaller.
  3. Add the yolks, a little at a time, pulsing after each addition. When the eggs are all in, process the dough in long pulses until it starts to clump.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead gently to pull the dough together. Wrap in plastic and let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  5. Press the dough into a 9-inch fluted, greased tart pan with a removable bottom. Press the dough evenly over the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Set on a baking sheet.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350ΒΊ.
  7. Mix sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add peach slices and lemon juice and gently toss. Arrange peach slices in concentric circles over the crust, starting on the outside and working towards the middle. Pour any of the juices in the bowl over the tart.
  8. To make the topping, mix together the flour and brown sugar. With fingers, rub the butter pieces into the dry ingredients to make crumbs. Spread over top of the tart.
  9. Bake 45-55 minutes or till crust is brown and filling is bubbling.
  10. Cool to room temperature on a wire rack and serve with vanilla ice cream if desired.

I must look up your grasshopper pie menu – I’ve never heard of grasshopper pie before and I am hoping this has more to do with the cocktail than the insect!
