 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Plus
  • 2 tb All-purpose flour
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/4 c Plus
  • 1 1/2 ts Sugar
  • 3/4 lb Unsalted butter
  • 12 Fresh peaches (about)
  • 4 Egg yolks
  • 3 tb Whipping cream
  • 2/3 c Ground almonds
  • 2/3 c Confectioners sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 ts Myers' rum
  • 1 tb Cornstarch
  • 1/2 c Milk
  • 1 Lemon peel
  • 3 dr Vanilla extract


To prepare the pate royale, sift 2 cups flour onto a work surface & make a
well in the center. Place the salt, 1-1/2 tsp. sugar, 1/2 lb. butter, 2 egg
yolks, & cream in the well. Mix the liquid ingredients in the well with the
fingertips, gradually incorporating the flour. Knead with the heel of the
palm to obtain a smooth dough. Work the dough as little as possible. Chill
the dough at least 30 minutes before rolling out. Meanwhile, prepare the
almond cream by creaming 6 tablespoons butter & beating in the almonds &
confectioners' sugar. When the cream mixture is well blended, whisk in the
egg. Beat in the rum & the cornstarch, whisking until the mixture is light
& smooth. Set aside. To make the pastry cream, scald the milk with the
lemon peel & vanilla extract. Whisk together the remaining 2 yolks, the
1/4 cup sugar, & the remaining 2 tablespoons flour. Pour the scalded
milk into the yolk mixture, whisking constantly, & return mixture to
saucepan. Boil vigorously for 3 minutes, stirring continuously to prevent
scorching. Remove from heat, add remaining butter, & leave to cool. Preheat
oven to 425 F. Remove chilled pate royale from the refrigerator & roll out
to 1/8 inch thickness. Line a 9-inch flan ring or French tart pan with the
pastry dough. Combine the almond cream with the cooled pastry cream & spoon
the mixture into the pie shell. Plunge the peaches into boiling water for
30 seconds; rinse under cold water. Remove the skins & slice each peach
into 8 wedges. Arrange the peach slices on top of the filling in a
decorative pattern. Bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until the almond
filling is puffed & browned.
