Woman's Weekly recipe The ultimate comfort food to end a meal – this buttery sweet pastry tart filled with sliced juicy peaches and custard is best served hot from the oven!


  • 1/2 x 375g packet sweet pastry
  • 415g can peach slices, drained
  • 150ml carton double cream
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 level tbsp cornflour
  • 1 level tbsp caster sugar
You will also need:
  • 24cm (91/2in) round enamel pie plate

Either peaches in syrup or fruit juice can be used for this recipe, just drain them well before using.


  1. Set the oven to 220°C/450°F/Gas Mark 7 and place a baking sheet in the oven to heat up.
  2. Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured surface and use to line the pie plate. Prick the pastry with a fork. Press the prongs of the fork around the edge of the pastry to pattern it. Chill the pastry for 10-15 mins.
  3. Arrange the peach slices on the pastry. Lightly whisk together the cream, egg, cornflour and sugar to make a custard and pour over the peach slices.
  4. Place the pie plate on the hot baking sheet in the oven, and immediately reduce the oven temperature to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
  5. Bake the pie for 20- 30 mins, until the custard has just set.
  6. Remove the pie from the oven and serve hot or at room temperature.
