THE OFF SEASON: peach tarts

tarts_05 Our Niagara peaches have ripened and my full time reign over the kitchen is quickly coming to an end.  Football season is no longer around the corner; it is knocking on my door.  As I play audience to the casual football Sunday menu banter between Mike and Kial, I am biding my time enjoying my last full weekends in the kitchen.  So, in honour of these peaches and my last football free weeks of baking, I made peach tarts!

tarts_01You may recall this tray from a past post; Mike had gifted it to me for Christmas and I declared 2015 the year of the tart.  Needless to say, I have failed on that decree as this tart only marks my 2nd batch for the year.
