Country Peach Tart
Our Test Kitchen staff came up with this peachy change of pace from a traditional baked fruit pie. Great for company, it's sure to impress guests--especially when it's served warm from the oven. For pretty presentation, serve slices with a dollop of reduced-fat whipped topping or a scoop of low-fat frozen yogurt.
