The other day, I got the baking bug. I haven't baked anything terribly interesting in awhile, and it is something I enjoy. I want to be able to prepare beautiful desserts to share with family and friends. I posted a question on the Family, Friends and Food Facebook page and on Twitter asking what everyone's favorite thing to bake is and was inspired by my friend Janet (LaDue & Crew) to make a tart.
I have always loved the look of tarts... whether they are fresh fruit or full of creamy chocolate filling and sprinkled with fresh raspberries. Then, Janet sent me a link to a tart she made last year that was stunning and had me jotting down the ingredients so that I can make my own version of it.
Since fresh fruit is not at is best this time of year, my tart was not quite as over-flowing with fruit as Janet's. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out - and will be making other variations as the season brings more fabulous fruit to the market.
My In-Laws came up to visit on Sunday and this tart was the finishing touch to our meal (London broil, Roasted Cauliflower & Brussels Sprouts and garlic bread). The tart was a wonderful taste of Spring! I think next time, I'll use a pie crust rather than puff pastry to see if we how we like it that way.
What do you like to bake or would you like to learn to bake?
