So, let’s get started! (BTW, the complete recipe is at the end of this post, and it’s printable, too!)

Now for the easy-peasy steps to make these delicious summer mini desserts.

  • Peel a ripe soft peach and blend it with a hand mixer or blender. Set aside. (Photo 1.)
  • Combine ingredients for crust with a pastry cutter and then knead into a ball. (Photo 2.)
  • Separate dough ball into 6 parts.(Photo 3.) (Do as I say, not as I do here… I realized what I had done when I started trying to spread my dough into the pan and it wouldn’t quite ‘reach’.)

Yield: 6
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

This easy and creamy fresh peach tartlet recipe is sure to be a favorite summer dessert for your family! Made with fresh peach puree and Bisquick, it doesn't get much easier than this recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Original Bisquick Mix
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, softened
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup pureed peach (approximately 1/2 of a large, peeled peach), drained
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 fresh peach, sliced
  • 1/3 cup apricot jelly, melted (optional)

TOOLS NEEDED

  • 2-3 mixing bowls
  • Pastry cutter (optional)
  • Hand Mixer
  • Spatula
  • Strainer
  • 4-inch tartlet pans (disposable work great)
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Cooling Rack

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Let peaches set on the counter to get to room temperature. Take 1/2 of a large peach, cut off the skin and mix it with the hand mixer until pureed. (You can use a blender for this, as well.) Let stand.
  3. Mix Bisquick, 3 tablespoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, and 3 ounces of softened cream cheese in a small bowl until dough forms a ball. (Use a pastry cutter to incorporate the ingredients, and then knead into a ball.)
  4. Divide dough into 6 separate balls. Press each ball into the bottom and 3/4 inch up the side of each tartlet pan. (You can also use 10-ounce custard cups.) Place the tartlet pans on a cookie sheet.
  5. Bake the tartlet crusts 9-12 minutes (for me, 9 minutes was perfect), or until light brown. Cool IN THE PANS on a cooling rack for about 20-30 minutes. Remove the shells for the pans.
  6. Drain the pureed peach using a strainer and place strained puree in a clean mixing bowl. Add remaining cream cheese, sour cream, and sugar and blend until smooth (you may have a little bit of texture, but that's okay. 😉 .
  7. Spoon mixture into tartlet shells and spread evenly. Top with sliced peaches.
  8. Brush melted apricot jelly onto fruit slices in order to keep the fruit looking fresh and staying moist.

Notes

*The thinner you spread your dough into the pans, the better! Just be sure you don't have any holes.

**After mixing the cream filling, be sure to taste it. You may want to add a dash more sugar.

  1. Well now I think I need some mini tart pans. Anything small like this usually kept me scrolling and not willing to try it. Not sure why. I think it was reading the cold butter/flour with a pastry cutter step. I has always been intimidating to me. Seeing this was softened margarine is a game changer though. Dang it, I want one right now! BTW, what did you do with the extra dough balls? So glad you were able to FINALLY join in this month. 😉 Thanks Julie!

    1. Hehe… only YOU would ask about the extra dough balls… I combined them with the others to make them the correct size! LOL!

    1. OH… I bet you have some AMAZING summer fruit in Lancaster. (As I type “Lancaster”, I find myself making sure I pronounce it correctly! Gotta keep in practice for my next visit!)

  2. Julie, these look and sound amazing! My husband love peaches and I’m definitely going to make these for him. Thanks for sharing! Pinned!

    1. Hehe… Bisquick to the rescue! My niece has requested my Bisquick shortcake/scones for her baby shower. 😉

  3. Oh yuuuuummmmm! Julie, I can almost taste how delicious and creamy these are! Pinned and cannot wait to try! That darn diet will just have to wait lol!

  4. These look so refreshing for a summer dessert. I’ve pinned them and definitely plan to give them a try! Thanks for sharing!

  5. This looks delicious Julie! I just bought a box of peaches from a peach truck. My friends and I split a box actually. I can’t wait to try this recipe, since I have a lot of peaches to work with!

  6. Julie, it’s so nice to be back at Pinterest Challenge with you. I love the idea of targets. I’ve never used Bisquick for a crust before, but I can see why it works for this one. Pinned.

  7. Julie, I have some tart pans and this would be a perfect recipe to use them with! I had two lemon tarts while I was in Paris this past week and still have a sweet tooth for more… ☺️

    Enjoy your new kitchen,
