A Perfect Peach & Pistachio Tart

Peach Tart

Georgia peach season is upon us and although there is nothing quite like biting into a sweet peach and letting the flavors speak for themselves, bringing in the flavors of the season into a single dish is a tasty way to get the best of all of the worlds. This peach tart recipe is incredibly easy to make, and you just can’t beat the mixture of these simple, yet rich flavors. The sweet peach plays perfectly with the tangy flavor of goat cheese, warm cinnamon, subtle crunch of pistachio and the sticky-sweet honey drizzle on top.  

MKR tip: Because getting that perfect crispy bite is so important, I take my time when thinly slicing the peaches. This ensures the peaches will bake evenly and perfectly crisp the crust.
