blueberry peach almond tart {gluten-free}

blueberry peach almond tart | The Baking Fairy

So, yesterday I went to class at the crack of dawn, and when I was done, my boss told me she wouldn’t need me for another couple of hours. Sooo I went home. And made this. Because when you’re me, every bit of extra time is spent cooking! This tart is so super easy and fast to make, and it’s perfect for summer! The only thing you have to actually cook is the crust, so your oven is only on for about 20 minutes {which means you won’t sweat your guts out}. The filling is a ridiculously delicious cream cheese whipped cream, and the topping is basically anything you want! I chose peaches and blueberries because they’re my favorite, but any kind of berry or summery fruit would be amazing. Cherries, plums, apricots… whatever floats your boat is sure to be yummy on here! A bonus of putting fresh fruit on top of a tart is that it looks stunning. Look at you, pastry chef cake decorator!
