Dessert: Peach Tarte Tartin

Peach Tarte Tartin

This only serves four if your lucky. In my family we are all fighting over who gets the largest piece. It is also compulsory to serve this with ice-cream or at least cream.

3 Peaches
1 Sheet Flaky Puff Pastry
1/2 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Bean Paste

1. Preheat oven to 180C

2. Place sugar, water and vanilla bean paste in a saucepan which can also go in the oven.

3. Place peaches face down in saucepan and spoon over syrup over them for approx 5 minutes.

4. Quickly place the puff pastry over peaches and "tuck into sides", then transfer into oven and bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown.

5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes, before turning out onto plate (i.e pastry should be on the bottom as shown in picture above)
