Made this and loved it with the peaches. What other fruits do you think would work well with this recipe? All stone fruits - as long as they're really ripe??

Yes, any stone fruits should work. I'd try blueberries as well.

I think, now that peach season is over, I will try it with apples. I did bake one with peaches this weekend, but even after adding extra flour to the filling, it was too soggy. Next summer I will try the peaches again, but I will double the amount of flour in the filling. (Incidentally, I prebaked the tart pastry, using the wonderful browned butter recipe from David Lebovitz.) When I baked the crust for the peach tart, I had enough pastry left over to make a single-serving tart. After the crust had baked and cooled, I filled with a variation of a chocolate pot de creme recipe from Craig Claiborne. It was awesome.)

I used thinly sliced pears and it was fabulous.

I'm about to try it with fresh strawberries.
