Greek Yogurt and Peach Tart : twist for the feast !
The best thing about Greek Yogurt and Peach Tart is that you can bake it using both fresh and canned peach halves.
It makes this beauty available all year long. Isn’t it great : store bought pie crust can be used, canned peaches, Greek yogurt … keeper it is !
Of course, there are certain desserts made for very special occasions; my son always chooses fruit cake to have for his birthday. I always choose a dish with figs; fresh or dried. Even if it means eating figs dried on salty coastal air that gives very special flavour … and if there is grappa aside, who could ask for more ? ?
It seems I am a lot like my grandfather as I am getting older ?
Anyway, to be back to the post of the day, I made a twist again and did not make a cobbler but a pie like dessert so easy to make, juicy, inviting and fruity one.
Before you start reading the list of ingredients and instructions let me mention the store bought pie crust dimenstions are 10 x 11 inches.
Also, preparation time includes 7 minutes of baking the crust while you prepare the fillling.

Spray the baking dish (10 x 6 x 2 inches ).
Preheat the oven to 180 C / 356 F.
Cut the crust to cover the bottom and one inch sides all over the dish. Keep the crust leftovers for later use.
Prick with fork, cover with baking paper and beans and bake for 7 minutes.
In meantime, mix egg whites, salt and sugar to have thick mixture.

Once you take the crust out, pour the filling into it.
