Perfect Pairing: Baked Peach Almond Tart and Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Coffee


It’s that time of year when summer gives way to autumn and farmers’ markets are filled with bushels of fresh, juicy peaches.

Blogger Alice Currah of Sweet Savory Life shares her recipe for Baked Peach Almond Tart, made with a buttery puff pastry base layered with an almond cream cheese filling, topped with a thin layer of fresh ripe peach slices, and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Toasted almond slivers and a light dusting of confectioners’ sugar finishes the tart off to make an impressive-looking desert.

The dessert pairs perfectly with Starbucks® Cinnamon Dolce K-Cup® packs (made for a K-Cup® brewer). This Starbucks® Blonde-roasted blend has a rich and sweet mellow flavor to it with a subtle hint of cinnamon and brown sugar pairing perfectly with this spiced peach dessert.
