  • 6 Tbs. ice water
  • 1 large egg, with yolk
  • 4 ripe peaches, sliced

Directions:

  1. In a mixer, beat together flour, sugar, and salt and mix until course.
  2. Add butter and continue to mixer until granulated.
  3. Add 4 of the 6 tablespoons of ice water and mix until dough starts to form.
  4. Flatten dough into a large disk, then cover in in plastic wrap. Let sit for 2 hours.
  5. To make the filling, blend butter, egg yolk, 2 peaches, and sugar together until smooth. Chill for 2 hours, then let sit until mixture reaches room temperature.
