  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp. water

  • 9 Pepperidge Farm® Bordeaux® Cookies, crushed

  • 2 tbsp. sugar

  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted

  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed

  • 8 medium peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced

  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream


  1. Heat the oven to 375°F.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.  Stir the cookie crumbs, sugar, cinnamon and butter in a medium bowl.

  2. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Roll the pastry sheet into a 13-inch square.  Trim off the corners to make a circle.  Place the pastry circle onto a 12-inch pizza pan or a baking sheet.  Fold over the edge of the pastry to make a rim.  Brush the pastry with the egg mixture.

  3. Arrange the peach slices on the pastry, overlapping slightly. Sprinkle with the cookie mixture.

  4. Bake for 35 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the peaches are tender.  Let the pastry cool on the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.  Serve with the ice cream, if desired.

  5. For Apple Streusel Tart, substitute 4 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced, for the peaches. Proceed as directed above except bake for 45 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the apples are tender.

The kind of pan you use can affect baking times. A nonstick or dark glazed baking sheet may bake faster, so adjust your time and check pastry while baking.

If your Puff Pastry becomes soft and sticky while working with it, chill it in the fridge for a few minutes. Place in the refrigerator between rollings, too.

Always flip and place the cut side of the Puff Pastry down on the baking sheet.

You can thaw Puff Pastry in the fridge. Separate and place each sheet on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and defrost in the refrigerator for about 4 hours.
