Rose Petal Jam Tarts

2 large peaches - halved, pitted peeled
1 1/4 CUPS all purpose flour
2 TBSP unsalted butter, well chilled
extra flour
8 TSP Rose Jam or Rose Jelly
1/4 CUP sugar
1 TSP grated lemon zest
1 egg

Wash and pat peaches dry and set aside.

In a food processor, mix 1 1/4 CUP flour and sugar.

Pulse 2 times.

Cut up chunks of butter and mix in some flour.

Sprinkle chunks and lemon zest into the flour mixture in processor until it resembles fine meal.

While the food processor is running, add egg, mixing just until blended.

Knead gently on floured surface, just until pastry forms.

Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Sprinkle board with flour and turn pastry frequently during rolling.

Roll out to 1/8 inch. If it rips, just patch it.

Roll out 4 circles of dough (approx. 6-7 in. diam.)

Place each peach half in center of each circle with the cut side up and fill each with 2 TSP of jam/jelly.

Enclose pastry carefully, sealing all sides. For extra effect, use leftover pastry to form "rose petals" to place underneath peach.

Bake 425 degrees for 10min. and then lower to 350 degrees for 15 min. on ungreased cookie sheets. Baking time may vary slightly

recipe from Marmellata di Rose


I have not made this yet, but wanted to save it for when I have fresh rose petals this summer:)

Hugs to all Who Visit Comfrey Cottages xx

Don't we both wish we had those rose petals now, Les? Maybe not because then we would have real global warming and I think we have started down that path already! The recipe sounds wonderful. I look forward to making it in June! Happy Valentine's dear lady! xxoo Nancy

Mmmm delicious. I do have a recipe for Rose Petal Jam :) It's in an Old English Cookery Book one. I've never made it but it sounds divine. There are Elderflowers recipes & lots of local home grown ingredients from long ago. Would like to be close to your kitchen lol :)

Comfrey Cottages said...

Oh Paules! that cookbook sounds divine! Will you share your jam recipe so I can see if it differs from mine? I wish we could make magic in the kitchen together too! xoxoxo

Thanks for the valerian flower tincture idea! Never, ever thought about that possibility. I will give it a try this somer so I can compare.
Next week I'll meet a group of (local) herbalists and will tell them about your experiences with valerian.
