This is my first official post with Tuesdays with Dorie. I have been cooking along with French Fridays with Dorie since March of this year and I am looking forward to joining another Dorie group. This week we are diving into the holidays with Cranberry Crackle Tart (page 135). I am a seasoned baker but I had a few snafus with this one. I can always learn more when it comes to baking.
I managed to over bake my tart shell. I am not sure what happened as I usually don’t burn things. I used parchment paper then my dried beans for weights, I usually use buttered foil which may have made the difference.
I also think I over baked my filling too. I did the full one hour and probably should have done less but despite my snafus everyone loved the pie. It was certainly unique and sophisticated, marshmallows and cranberries. I would make this again, especially to see if I could get it right.
Tuesdays With Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. To see what others did in this group go here.
