For this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie baking event, Marie of A Year in Oak Cottage
has chosen… La Palette’s Strawberry Tart on page 374 in
Dorie Greenspan’s cookbook: ‘Baking from my home to yours’.
This recipe was simple with a few steps to follow. I love the buttery taste of pâte brisée, the short pastry used for this tart. There’s no rolling, the dough is very forgiving and the ingredients are put together in a jiffy in the food processor.
tartlette molds of the tartlette pan. After an hour of the pan being in the freezer,
I topped each tartlette mold with foil paper before baking. The baking time took
longer than the recipe called for (about 10 minutes).
I served the tartlettes for dessert that night. I filled each one with 1 teaspoon of homemade strawberry jam, topped it with a sliced strawberry and almond slices. I did not have the right kind of liqueur on hand to sprinkle on top so I served them as they were. The strawberries and the jam, the crunch of the almonds with the buttery flavour of the crust were just scrumptious! I suspect that my family is looking forward to Tuesdays with Dorie each week.
and make this awesome easy strawberry tart for your next dessert! ooh la la!!
