Directions See How It's Made
- Prepare the crust: Mix the flour and sugar together. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture becomes coarse crumbles. Add the vanilla and water and toss with a fork until the dough just holds together. Add more water if needed.
- Press the dough evenly into an 8-inch removable-bottom tart pan. Chill in the refrigerator for 45 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Line the chilled dough with the sheet of foil and fill with dried beans. Bake in the lower part of the oven for 8 minutes. Remove the foil and beans and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from the oven.
- Make the filling: Stir the sugar and peach preserves together in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly. Pour into the tart shell.
- Set on the center rack in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool and serve.
