Take some of the season's ripest, juiciest fruit to tasty new heights with this divine dessert.


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter , cubed
  • 4 tsp ice water
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 4 large peaches , unpeeled, cut into wedges
  • 170-g tub raspberries
  • 1 tbsp 35% cream
  • 1 tbsp coarse sugar


  • WHIRL flour with granulated sugar and 1/4 tsp salt in a food processor. Add butter. Pulse until crumbs form. With motor running, add ice water and lemon juice through spout. Continue whirling just until dough comes together. It should not be sticky. Divide into 4 portions and form each one into a disc. Wrap each with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 min or overnight.
  • POSITION a rack in the lower third of oven. Preheat to 400F. Combine brown sugar with cornstarch, cinnamon and 1/8 tsp salt in a large bowl. Stir in peaches and raspberries until evenly coated. Distribute fruit mixture among 4 small baking dishes. Arrange dishes on a large baking sheet. On a floured surface, roll out 1 pastry disc wide enough to cover top of a baking dish. Loosely roll up around rolling pin and unroll over dish. Trim off any excess pastry. Crust should be even with the edge of baking dish, not overhanging. Cut 4 small slits in pastry. Repeat with remaining discs. Lightly brush tops of pastry with cream. (Don’t let it pool.) Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Lay a large piece of foil overtop.
  • BAKE in lower third of oven for 15 min. Remove foil and continue baking until crust is golden and fruit mixture is bubbly, 20 to 25 more min.
