Kinky Peach Tart

I bet that title got your attention.  And it's almost innocent on how it relates to this dessert.  I had gotten some miniatures for Christmas and one was a bottle of Kinky liqueur.  I like fun tasting miniatures to use in cooking and baking so I wanted to pair this with a fruit dessert and here we are ~





Kinky Peach Tart


Thaw a 10 oz bag of frozen peach slices

Add in ~
2 tbsp instant tapioca
1 miniature of Kinky liqueur

Allow to set for 15 minutes while you make the tart mixture

In a food processor or mixer, combine 

1 stick butter, softened
1 cup sugar

Pulse until creamed together.  Then add in the rest of the dry ingredients.

1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

Pulse until crumbly and add in 1 tbsp cold water.  Give a couple quick pulses until it comes together in large crumbs.  Set aside 2/3 cup of crumbs.  Press remainder into a buttered and floured 9" springform pan.  Make sure the edges are about 1" high to hold the peach mixture.  Arrange the peaches in a circle pattern and then pour the juice on top.  Sprinkle the reserved 2/3 cup of crumbs on top.  Bake for 55 minutes at 350°  Allow to cool for 15 minutes before releasing from the pan.
