Ingredients
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 peach, pitted, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup of cherries, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 3 tbsp of spreadable cream cheese
  • 3 tbsp of honey, divided
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
Instructions
  1. preheat oven to 425F
  2. lightly flour your rolling surface and rolling pin
  3. roll out the sheet of puff pastry to about an 12 x 8 inch surface
  4. if your rolling isn't even, fold over the edges of the pastry to form a nice 8x12 rectangle
  5. with a small paring knife, score a line around the edge of the pastry about an inch in from the edges
  6. mix the cream cheese and 1 tbsp of honey together in a small bowl until smooth and easy to spread
  7. with a small knife or spatula, evenly spread about half the cream cheese mixture over the surface of the pastry, leaving the outer edge of the pastry, outside your score lines, empty
  8. bake the pastry in the oven for about 5 minutes until it just starts to puff up - you can use this time to slice your fruit
  9. after the five minutes is up, remove your pastry and let the centre deflate (you can press it down with a fork if it needs some help but usually it will deflate on its own as it cools)
  10. spread the remaining cream cheese mixture over the same area you covered before baking
  11. arrange your fruit however you wish - the tart can look beautiful when done orderly and lined up or when you toss it all onto the pastry!
  12. sprinkle sugar around the edges of the pastry
  13. bake in the oven for 10 minutes - at this point you'll want to check to make sure everything's baking nicely and nothing is burning
  14. bake for an additional five minutes - the puff pastry edges can be temperamental so I like to keep a close eye on them as the cooking time winds down
  15. when the edges are just starting to become golden, spread the remaining two tbsp of honey around the edges of the tart and bake for another 2-3 minutes, keeping close watch
  16. remove from the oven, cool and then slice into pieces
  17. enjoy!
