A fresh Blueberry Peach Tart says summer like nothing else. Layers of fresh peaches and blueberries atop a buttery pecan crust. It’s a gorgeous and scrumptious summer dessert. I’ve always loved peaches and blueberries together and make this tart once a year when they’re both in season. (That’s right now around here!!!)
For the first time ever, my boys went blueberry picking on their own at our local berry farm last week. My oldest got his license last fall, so this is his first summer driving. I had no idea how ultra-convenient this having an extra driver in the household would be. (!) Not only did they come back with enough blueberries for this Blueberry Peach Tart, two batches of homemade blueberry jam and Wild Maine Blueberry Ice Cream…they also brought back a bucket of fresh, juicy peaches. Score! When they walked in the door with all that orchard booty, it felt like Christmas. Christmas in August. Immediately I knew I’d be making this gorgeous Blueberry Peach Tart .
Bake the pecan crust for 15-20 minutes. As the crust bakes, cook the quick peach and blueberry fillings separately on the stovetop.
Fill with luscious homemade peach filling…
Spoon the homemade blueberry filling on top .
Cool, then garnish Blueberry Peach Tart with whipped cream, peaches and fresh mint.

Allie, that is a beautiful tart. I really want to make a tart now, and I don’t even own a tart pan. You’ve motivated me to get one.
Kristen @ A Mind Full Mom says
What a great way to be positive about having an extra driver in the house it 🙂 Your boys spoiled you by bringing all those berries back–but they had their reasons! I bet they were counting on you to make something fabulous as always! this tart does not disappoint!
I enjoyed reading your anecdote about your son now having his driver’s license. That must be a huge help when you have 4 boys!! My son won’t be driving for some years yet, but I am enjoying his increasing independence; it is so great to see him turning into a young man. (And at the same time, I can’t believe how quickly he is growing up! Sniff!) This tart looks incredible, and the pictures are beautiful.
Rachel @ Simple Seasonal says
What a beautiful tart. I really must carve out some time to make this recipe!

Such a great use for my summer fruit bounty!
Aunt Pinkie says
Boy, does that ever look luscious! And what fun that the boys picked both blueberries and peaches! Your pictures are wonderful!
Thanks Aunt Pinkie! I was so thankful to have helpers with the picking this year.
It is so helpful when the kids get their license, isn’t it? My oldest took his time, but now he’s had it for a year. My middle child has her driving test scheduled…not waiting like her brother. It was nice when he could drive himself to practices and games!
Anyway, your blueberry peach tart looks so yummy! I have blueberry bushes, but the birds always seem to beat me to them every year!
Susie Mandel says
My mouth is watering…can’t wait to try it!
Linda Jenkins says
I can imagine this wonderful dessert melting in my mouth. I think your boys had a definite plan in mind when they ventured off to the orchard. I printed this recipe. I am creating quite the scrapbook of scrumptious recipes thanks to you, Allie. Keep them coming.

Wow Allie! I’m so jealous of the blueberry bounty you have at your fingertips! Your tart does look scrumptious!

Dear Allie, What a stunning summer treat! This makes me want to go blueberry picking…Christmas in August indeed! Pinned for later. I would love to make this for my family. xo, Catherine
J @ A Hot Southern Mess says
Blueberry and peach combo is the perfect summer combo in my opinion. This tart looks to die for! I am pretty sure that I would try to eat the whole thing and say “it was only one piece”!
Anu-My Ginger Garlic Kitchen says
Wow, wow, wow! What a genius, luscious, delicious and gorgeous tart recipe! This has everything I want in a summer dessert! I mean, who can say NO to this beauty!
Emanuele @ guyslovecooking says
That is good, you can relax and take advantage of the extra driver…Now you can DRIVE HIM crazy whilst driving too 🙂
Good looking cake
Oh man, I am all about that pecan crust! I think one of the best thing about picking your own fruit is that you just HAVE to bake something with it afterwards. I’m dying over here drooling over the filling – I love blueberries and peaches together!
Arman @ thebigmansworld says
That looks absolutely delicious…Feel like adding another son to the crew 😉
Kim (Feed Me, Seymour) says
Holy moly…. This is beautiful! I love that the peach filling is hiding under that giant pile of blueberries.
Hard to find adjectives to use that no one else has. So I will copy Barbara. This is a “luscious looking creation”. That’s exactly what this is! Can’t wait to make this and wow everyone!
Ha. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Barbara should be smiling. Thank you Tracy, hope everyone enjoys it!

My daughter just started driving last December and it sure is nice to have another driver at home – even though it’s just the 2 of us – especially for grocery store runs!
Allie – this tart is gorgeous! I adore the crust – with almond extract and pecans – it sure sounds amazing!
Laurie Flanigan says
This looks amazing.
Karen @ On the Banks of Salt Creek says
Mmmm. This looks so good. Love blueberries and peaches. Pinned.
