Portuguese Peach Tart (Tarte de Pessego)

Tarts are a specialty of Portuguese dessert making. Tarte de Pessego is a Portuguese Peach tart that is perfect to make in the summer months. It is a fruity flavored tart that has the perfect amount of crisp and creamy texture. It is one of my favorite desserts because it is so simple and easy to make without all the fuss, but is sure to impress as well.
