Peach-Coconut Puff Pastry Tart

If it doesn’t make you feel fabulous – don’t do it, don’t buy it, don’t keep it

Freeze Dried Peaches?  I knew they existed but had never entertained the idea of cooking with them.  I have found that they are surprisingly easy to work with and the taste and texture is overall consistent with canned or frozen once they are cooked.  Today I thought I would experiment by preparing a peach puff pastry dessert.  It was super easy and very tasty.  I am really excited about trying some of the other fruits and vegetables.  I had an afterthought of adding cream cheese so I might do that next time.

  • 2 cups freeze dried peaches
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup finely shopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 puff pastry sheet
  • 1 egg white
  • cooking spray/flour
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place the peaches in warm water and let stand for approximately 8 minutes.
  • Drain
  • Add brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, coconut and finely shopped walnuts.  Mix well.
  • Lightly sift flour onto wax paper and roll puff pastry dough until all creases are out.
  • Scoop peach filling onto center of dough lengthwise.
  • Fold over filling and seal the ends.
  • Cut a few slits in the top.  I attempted to braid the top which was unsuccessful due to the fact that I had let the dough sit out too long before getting around to that.
  • Brush the top of the roll with egg white.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until brown.
