When voting time came up on Tuesdays with Dorie, I wanted to make all the recipes with summer fruit. I just love summer and its bounty of fresh fruit. The group voted for Apricot Raspberry Tart page 145 from Baking Chez Moi.
Dorie’s Sweet Tart Dough is flawless and I can get it to come out perfect every time. For this recipe Dorie has you put stale Brioche crumbs on the bottom of the tart shell to soak up the juices from the fruit, a new technique for me.
My finished tart came out perfect. Not all the sugar melted in the baking process which I was surprised but made my son happy. This drew thumbs up from the family, second pieces were had by most. I am not a huge fan of apricots but I did enjoy this tart. I would make it again.
On to other Dorie baking. I made two recipes from Around My French Table that were a hit.
Cauliflower-bacon gratin (page 362). I made this for our July 4th dinner. It was a big hit and deemed make again.
Chicken breasts diable (page 217) and garlicky crumb coated broccoli (page 334). This was a delicious meal. The sauce makes the chicken dish and we were lucky to have extra for another meal. My husband and I loved the broccoli and it was so nice to have another recipe to make. My son oddly enough did not like the bread crumbs.
To see how the rest of the group made Apricot Raspberry Tart.
Tuesdays With Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. We don’t publish the recipes, instead we encourage you to buy the book.
