TWD: Quick Classic Berry Tart


Cristine of Cooking with Cristine picked Quick Classic Berry Tart for this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe.

I have to admit that I accidentally made this when I added pastry cream to the La Palette's Strawberry Tart many moons ago . What a happy mistake. It's been one of my favorite TWD treats of all time. (It was also one of my favorite "photo shoots"... back in the day when I actually put some effort into it, LOL.)

Anyway, this classic tart tasted just as good this time around. I made one mini tart using Dorie's sweet tart dough with nuts (I used pistachios), which I've come to prefer for it's wonderful light, crumbly (but not too crumbly) texture.

If you'd like to see the recipe, please visit Cristine's blog, or (preferably) get yourself a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours", one of the best all around baking books EVAH!
