Tuesdays with Dorie: brioche plum tart
Let me begin by saying that if you are here for the Daring Cooks challenge…that will be coming shortly ;)!
So here I am, in a brand new environment thinking, “Now what am I supposed to do with all these baked goods? I surely can’t eat them all myself, but my usual people to pawn them off on are thousands of miles away!” Especially after I didn’t really share last week’s brownies. But don’t worry, my friends, because as you know there is no better way to make new friends than with food! And with a little bit of what I can only assume was divine intervention, I found a home for these tarts. (I made minis with my new mini-tart pans from my newly (almost) stocked kitchen!)
So there I was, on a new campus, walking across campus when I randomly ran into a guy I knew from my undergrad. Not in my primary group of friends, mind you, but we did know each other. We worked together, and I actually believe I had my first rhubarb cooking experience with him. Exciting! So I went over for game night, and amidst the Taboo and Apples to Apples, we ate these lovely tarts. They really did look exquisite. And they tasted yummy too…although I do think they would be wonderful for breakfast instead of desert!
Thank you Denise of Chez Us for choosing a tart worthy of taking to a long-lost friend’s home.
