Ingredients

  • For the dough:
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • For the peach filling:
  • 5-6 peaches
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp corn starch

Instructions

  • Sift the flour, salt, baking powder, and 2 tbsp of sugar.
  • Then add in the butter and mix it in using a dough cutter or fork.
  • Add in the cream cheese and form the dough into a flat disk shape. If the dough is too crumbly to form, add 1 tbsp of ice cold water. Careful not to over work the dough.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  • Slice the peaches about 1/4" thick and toss them into a bowl. Add the cornstarch and 4 tbsp of sugar and gently mix just to combine.
  • On a floured surface, roll the dough out to a circle about 12-13" in diameter. Using a rolling pin, transfer the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If some of the dough crumbles, just patch up cracks with the dough that crumbles off.
  • Begin arranging the sliced peaches into circles starting for the outside in. Be sure to leave about 2 inches of space as the border.
  • Fold the edges of the dough over onto the peaches. With each fold slightly pinch the dough to keep it all together.
  • Brush the dough with egg wash and sprinkle with some raw course sugar. (Sprinkling raw sugar is optional)
  • Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Baking time may vary depending on the oven.

Notes

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
