TWD: La Palette's Strawberry(ish) Tart


DSC00469


We had a smaller crowd than usual when I served up this week's TWD recipe, so I opted to do the individual slice option. That led right into providing different fruits and jams to help tailor things to individual tastes.

One of the options that sounded fantastic to me was to put apple butter on the tart and top it with the caramel apples from the Brown Sugar-Apple Cheesecake recipe.

It was pretty awesome, but I'm still not sure it was worth all the work required for the tart dough.

(Sorry folks for another sub-standard post. I've had a bit of a rough week.)

For the recipe, please visit Marie at A Year From Oak Cottage - she picked the recipe this week. Also, don't forget to check out there rest of the TWD tarts (and see their tarts - heh).
