- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt, divided
- 4 tablespoons cold margarine, cut into pieces
- 2 to 3 tablespoons cold water
- 1 egg, separated
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons sugar substitute*
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 cup fat-free (skim) milk
- Fat-free whipped topping (optional)
- Caramel syrup (optional)
- 3/4 package (12 ounces) frozen unsweetened peach slices, thawed and drained
Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt in medium bowl. Cut in margarine with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 2 tablespoons water just until moistened, adding additional water if necessary. Shape dough into disc.
Roll out dough into 11-inch circle on lightly floured surface. Place dough in 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Turn under edge of dough. Pierce bottom and side of dough with fork. Beat egg white with fork; lightly brush egg white onto bottom and side of crust. Discard remaining egg white. Place tart pan on baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack.
Meanwhile, whisk egg yolk, 2 eggs, sugar substitute, vanilla, nutmeg, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt in large bowl until blended. Microwave milk 1 minute on HIGH or until hot. (Do not boil.) Whisk milk into egg mixture until blended. Arrange peach slices in crust; pour egg mixture over peaches.
Bake 25 to 27 minutes or until set. Remove to wire rack; cool to room temperature. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until chilled. Serve with whipped topping and caramel sauce, if desired.
