Peaches, raspberries and brie cheese make a seriously irresistible combination! This fruit tart is sweet, gooey, light and beautiful.
Why This Recipe Works
This time of year our countertops and fridge are always bursting with fruit. Thankfully my boys love fruit because they do not, ahem, love vegetables (to my great dismay). So I load up on the juicy, colorful fruits. And I’m always thinking up new ways to combine fruit and baking because I’m kinda in love with both. Separately, but mostly together. Raspberries and peaches are one of my favorite combos in the world, maybe second to blueberries and peaches. Or lemons and blueberries. This Raspberry Peach Tart seemed like the perfect little summer dessert to throw together this week. It is: fruity (obviously), light, gooey, satisfying, crispy, sweet and sooooo yummy.
If the combination of cheese and fruit throws you off, may I beg you to put those qualms aside. Brie is a soft, sweet cheese that tastes great when paired with other sweet things such as raspberries and peaches. The puff pastry sheets, when baked, turn into soft-crispy vessels of deliciousness that will sufficiently deliver the sweetness into your salivating mouth.
Puff pastry sheet – This takes the pressure off of making a pie crust!
Wheel Brie cheese – The savory addition of this melted cheese is delicious with the sweet fruit.
Peach – Enjoy a ripe peach that is still able to be sliced up without falling apart.
Fresh raspberries – This tangy fruit pairs perfectly with peaches.
While I’m partial to the peaches and raspberries, feel free to replace them with other fruits you may have on hand. Rhubarb? Blueberries? BLACKberries (YUM)? Strawberries? Apples? I might have to create a few more variations in the very near future.
I have an endless supply of examples I could give that show my love for baking with fruit, but here are a few favorites: Cherry Bars, Blueberry Ice Cream Cookies, Strawberry Bundt Cake and Chocolate Raspberry Bundt Cake.
Here’s hoping you are all having a great week!
FAQ About Tarts
Yes, a tart is different from a pie in a couple of ways. A fruit tart has a bottom crust but not always one that covers it, but often does on the sides of the dessert. A fruit tart can also be more rustic looking than a formal pie. A tart can be made of different ingredients from graham cracker crust, pretzels or using a puff pastry like this version.
While tarts often include fruit, they aren’t exclusive to fruit being in them. A custard or filling of some sort might cover the crust.
A galette and a tart are often interchanged, depending on the baker. A galette tends to be informal, more rustic in its creation. Both tarts and galettes can be served sweet and savory.

Raspberry Peach Tart Recipe
- 1 puff pastry sheet thawed
- 14 oz. wheel Brie cheese rinds removed and cut into thin slices
- 1 large ripe peach pitted and thinly sliced
- 2 cups fresh raspberries
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 4 tbsp. butter melted
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (you may have to do this in 2 batches, depending on the size of your baking sheet). Lightly flour a flat surface and roll out the puff pastry sheet to 1/8-inch thickness (into approximately a 12×18-in. rectangle). Using a sharp knife, cut dough into four equal squares.
- Place the dough squares onto the prepared baking sheet and top with equal amounts of the cheese, peaches and raspberries, leaving a 1-inch border around each side. Fold over the edges and pinch together at corners.
- Sprinkle the sugar over the fruit and brush the exposed dough with the melted butter. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Serve warm!
