TWD - Tart with a heart
How gorgeous does this little delight look? - The good news is it tastes even better than it looks! This week's Tuesdays With Dorie (lets ignore that it has just crept into Wednesday here in the Uk - I'm sure its still Tuesday somewhere in the world!)anyway...This weeks TWD pick came from the most lovely lady, Marie from A Year At Oak Cottage - I sincerely hope she is not only spending a year there because I am so addicted to reading her blog. Oak Cottage happily enough is in the Uk (although sadly nowhere near me as I may have been tempted to call on Marie). marie picked a recipe called La Pallette Strawberry Tart which made the most of some wonderful strawberries that we have around at the mo - In this age of thinking of food miles I love to make a recipe that can call on local ingredients (I have a blog entry coming soon that details another addition to the aardvark cakes family - no not another child but someone who lays eggs!)
Anyway, to get on...This tart was amazing - I used the Sweet Tart Dough and went along with Dorie's suggestion of adding ground almonds - I think I used a little too much butter but I love a good crunchy base so am not moaning. I even had some kirsch in the shed (I must have bought it ages ago for a really essential recipe and had never used it)
We are not listing the recipes anymore as a nod to copyrights/publishing rights which I believe to be quite right - I also thought it made my blog look really boring to have a huge long list of instructions - I do believe though that the 'chooser' may get to have the recipe listed - so have a look at Marie's blog - even if it is not there, it is well worth a visit.
Next week - Peppermint Cream Puffs - I am terrified!
