It is pretty and tasty, so it is lovely to enjoy while sitting outside on a warm afternoon or evening.

When I was growing up, we had a peach tree in the backyard. For the first few years, we referred to it as a peach ‘stick,’ instead of a tree.
However, our patience paid off. By the time I was in high school, we needed to prop up branches that were weighted down with big, juicy peaches each year.
Peaches always bring back happy childhood memories, so I love to incorporate them into a variety of recipes.
Of course, it is also nice to just sit back and enjoy the sunshine and a fresh peach.
The tart recipe is simple, so you can easily get your children involved in the process.
If your kids are too small to use a mixer or sharp knife, they can definitely help with the cookie dough crust and measuring the filling ingredients.
Placing the sliced peaches on top is also a fun finishing touch for kids to help with.
Enjoy the flavors of Summer with this deliciously simple peach tart!
