  • 1 1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 4 fresh peaches – peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 3 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 1/3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Melt 1/2 tablespoon butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir peaches, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt together in the melted butter, cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is syrupy, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 10×6-inch baking dish.
  3. Mix 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a bowl. Mash unsalted butter into the flour mixture until lumps are the size of small peas. Blend 2 tablespoons sour cream into the mixture, mix until you have a dough-like mixture. Pat the dough into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until browned and crust-like, about 10 minutes.
  5. Spread peach mixture over the crust into an even layer.
  6. Beat egg yolks, sugar, 3 1/3 tablespoons sour cream, and 2 tablespoons flour together in a small bowl, pour evenly over the layer of peaches. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 35 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and continue baking until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving warm.
