Mostly Rhubarb Tart

I knocked this out for our Sunday dinner. I was lucky and found rhubarb at Smart and Final but like Kim it was not in the greatest condition no matter it was being cooked anyway. We have made several rhubarb desserts over the years but so far our favorite remains Rhubarb Upside Down Brown Sugar…

French Riviera Lemon Tart

It is good to be in the Riviera! I have been baking tarts  à la Dorie for decades now and I thought I had made them all but this lemon tart is very different from all the rest. Starting with the crust I have not made one with olive oil before. Dorie’s sweet tart dough…

Steph’s Bakewell Tart

Wow was this good. I have never had a Bakewell Tart before and I am so happy that Steph shared her recipe with Dorie. I think this is a mash-up of a dessert; tart shell, jam and cake on top. A bonus of this dessert is that it is made with almond flour which I…

Tomato Tart with Mustard and Ricotta

I went rouge this week. I wanted to serve this dish for Mother’s Day so I swapped out the two recipes. This dish did not come out at all like the picture. I think the photo is before the eggs go in. Any who, we really loved this one. The crust is fantastic, like all…

Caramelized Cinnamon-Milk Chocolate Tart

I have been looking forward to this tart for a very long time and I was not disappointed and neither was my family. Armed with my cinnamon from Costa Rica, one of my friends bought for me, I delved into this recipe. A quarter of a cup of sugar is caramelized with two cinnamon sticks….

Tropical Tartlets

This month on Tuesdays with Dorie we have had a tropical theme; mango, lime and coconut. Given that none of us can travel beyond our own backyards we are traveling with our food adventures. These tropical tartlets from Baking Chez Moi live up to their name. The filling is comprised of mango, eggs, sugar, coconut,…

Lower East Side Brunch Tart

This week on Cook the Book Fridays we are celebrating one of our own with a dish she wanted to make, Lower East Side Brunch Tart. Chez Nana, aka Rosemarie DiDomenico, I ‘met’ in the group French Fridays with Dorie in which we were cooking from Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan. She and…

Crème Brûlée Tart

Another fabulous tart on Tuesdays with Dorie. We are down to the final tarts from Baking Chez Moi. Taking a traditional creme brulee filling and putting into a tart is tasty. I used the optional extracts of vanilla and chambord which I am not sure I tasted. I put in a half a cup of…

Martine’s Lemon and Apple Tart

I am posting late this week, Thursdays with Dorie?, because I wanted to make this tart for my anniversary which happens to be today. This monumental year of 2020 is having me celebrate all kinds of milestones at home. I can also see my planned vacation, a cruise, vanish before my eyes. But on to…

Cream Cheese and Toast Tartlets

Our latest baking adventure for Tuesdays with Dorie are these cream cheese and toast tartlets. I am a sucker for a tartlet so I was looking forward to these minified versions. The cream cheese filling is lighter than traditional cheesecake as it is not baked but whipped with heavy cream. So yes light in texture…
