Fig and Peach Shortbread Tart

This recipe was conceived in the early morning hours, as most of my experiments do.



1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour

1 cup Fig Jam
1 peach sliced thinly
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 teaspoon sugar for sprinkling


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

For Crust: cream butter and sugar.  Add vanilla. Add flour one cup at a time and fully incorporate. Press into tart pan, add pie weights to stop crust from rising and bake for 20 minutes until set and slightly browned.

For Filling:  Remove pie from oven and spread jam. Turn oven up to 375 degrees. Cover top with sliced almonds and arrange peaches.  Sprinkle peaches with sugar.  Bake for about 20 minutes more until jam is bubbly and crust is browned.

Let cool before serving.
