Tuesdays With Dorie: La Palette’s Strawberry Tart


This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, La Palette’s Strawberry Tart, was chosen by Marie of A Year In Oak Cottage.

This is my first week with TWD – I am soo excited!

I have a confession to make – I have never made a tart – gasp – because….well, confession #2 – I am scared of anything with a crust. Whew, I feel much better now!

La Palette’s Strawberry Tart – a perfect welcome to summer. Of course, its been sweltering here in Florida for some time now, but if you want to be technical, summer is on its way.

I have never made any pastry in my food processor, so I was like a little kid watching a magic show when all of the ingedients suddenly, magically formed dough, right before my eyes with just a few pluses of my fingers! How much easier could this get?

Of course, life would have probably been a little easier had a actually owned a tart pan. But, I winged it with a springform pan. Dorie mentioned that the tart could be rustic, so I took her at her word!

My husband and I both enjoyed it every much – the buttery crust was so rich, and yet the dessert was so light at the same time. Again, magic!

I am looking forward to many more baking adventures with TWD!
