My Favorite Baking Trays And They Are Perfect For The Peach Tart Puff Pastry
You’ll want a nice long cookie baking tray that can be lined with parchment paper and that allows homemade baked goods to just turn out perfect every time because they heat evenly.
The #1 question I am asked over and over is, “how do your baked goods always turn out perfect?”
The answer is simple, I use these, my favorite baking pans, which I use for almost every cookie and pastry recipe because you just can’t go wrong with them.
For me it is simple, you invest in ONE good pan, and after buying another because you’ll find a very simple-looking pan that heats evenly and allows you to create incredible baked goods. You simply can’t go wrong with them!

How TO Make Puff Pastry Peach Tart Bites
Now let’s take a look at how to make the crumb-topped peach bites on puff pastry.
Step 1: Prep Your Oven To Bake The Puff Pastry
You’ll preheat your oven and cover your baking trays with parchment paper (if you are using it) then set them aside.
Step 2: Make The Filling With The Fresh Peaches
First, wash and slice your peaches.
Next, you’ll place the peaches in a bowl or on a plate and use the sugar, flour, and cinnamon mixture to coat, then combine and allow them to sit while you prepare the puff pastry dough and the crumb topping.
Step 3: Prepare your crumb topping for your individual servings of peach tart and puff pastry
Start by making the crumb topping, mixing the butter and flour, and sugar together.
Once it is the right consistency you will set it aside.
Step 4: Puff Pastry Preparation For Peach Tarts
On a lightly floured work surface unroll the puff pastry, roll it with the rolling pin, and then evenly score it into either 9 even pieces or 12.
Transfer each piece onto your parchment-covered cookie tray.
Crack the egg and add the water to it whisk to combine.
Next, brush each shell with the egg wash.
Now, upon each square/bite, place peach slices 3-4 whatever fits side to side or diagonally.
Step 5: Create Crumb Topped Peach Bites on Puff Pastry Here’s How
Divide the dutch crumb topping among the 9 or 12 individually prepared (depending on what you cut your squares into) and then top each of the pastries with the topping.
Place in preheated oven and bake until the bites (pastry shell) are golden brown about 18 minutes up to 20.
Remove. Allow the easy puff pastry peach tart bites to cool for about 30 minutes
While the dutch crumb peach pastry bites are cooling, prep the icing.
Use the icing ingredients above, and mix with a fork to a thicker, yet spreadable consistency.
If it is caking and won’t leave the tines of the fork, add a few drops of water/milk, at a time until it is thick enough to drizzle by the fork or spoon, yet thick enough that it won’t completely runoff

Popular Substitutions and Additions
When you make dutch crumb peach pastry bites you will definitely want to heed these few tips.
- Always use butter
- Make sure butter is at least smooshy, meaning room temperature, melted is not best but will work.
- Add less, you can always add more.
- Cinnamon is optional and if you don’t like it, don’t use it!

Why I Really Enjoy The Peach Tart With Puff Pastry Dessert
The icing is the topper on top of the amazing dutch crumb.
In my opinion, the peach tart puff pastry is not finished unless it is topped with the icing at it brings everything together and while the peaches may be sweet and sassy on their own, well, then consider treating your mouth to a foodgasm!
