SPRING = STRAWBERRIES

This week for Tuesdays with Dorie we did LaPalette's Strawberry Tart (recipe here ). What a perfect recipe as strawberries are all over the market with the arrival of Spring. (You can see the crumb in this picture

I spread a low sugar jam over my tart. It is mixed berry and it's one of my favorites. I also made Tangy Chocolate Sauce from Dorie's book. I poured that all over my piece. It was yum!


My review of this tart. Well as far as tarts go I am not that picky because I love them. This particular tart is not a soft dough but rather a crumbly kind of dough. Some may baulk at that but it tastes so much like a shortbread cookie that I didnt mind. Have I told you that shortbread is my favorite kind of cookie. Which is why this tart was so appealling to me. In the future it will be one of the recipes in my tart dough repertoire. I have a few that I like. One I make has almond paste in it. Wow let me tell you it is delicious. More on that later. For right now Dorie gets the spotlight.

Nice we were able to enjoy the berries with a TWD recipe--their season is so very short! I used chocolate ganache with some of mine, too!

Mmmmm. I'm going to have chocolate sauce on my next one. And yes, I have eaten one of my muffin pan tarts as a cookie. At least one.

Strawberries and chocolate oh that sounds so good! My daughter just has so much hair and it is so thick! The hair I have always wanted!

My bag keeps blowing up and I have to keep letting all the air out! No leakage this week. Will post about it this weekend! Hope to hear how yours comes out.

Oh, man... wish I'd have thought of a chocolate drizzle. I'll bet that was awesome.

Nice job!

Nice looking strawberry tarts!

You can never go wrong with chocolate and strawberries. Looks delectable!

Mevrouw Cupcake said...

That chocolate sauce looks delicious! When I was chomping away at my tart, I did consider that a thin layer of chocolate glaze over the tart dough would not be such a bad idea. Gonna have to put that thought into action, yes siree!

Gretchen Noelle said...

I really enjoyed the crust as well. The idea of chocolate with the strawberries sounds just delicious!

Lauren said...
