K: "Why are we supposed to make something with out of season fruit?"
Me: "There are some places where cherries are in season."
K: "Not here."
Me: "We'll use peaches instead."
K was right. We had a very early and short cherry season. So despite the cherry-pitter languishing in my kitchen drawer, there would be no cherries for us. But s farmers market special of flats of peaches for $15? That we would not miss. So Cherry Crumb Tart became Peach Crumb Tart for us and I am very glad that it did, because this may be my favorite Tuesdays with Dorie recipe so far. Peaches are my favorite fruit and combining them with a buttery crust and a crumb topping? What was not to love?
The recipe: I think K may have now memorized this tart crust, and that is not a complaint. We've used it for many Tuesdays with Dorie recipes, but also for other projects as well ,and it is a winner. Easy and very K (read child) friendly.
