Pretty in pink….an american romantic comedy film, starring Molly Ringwald, often dressed in pink. It is the first title I thought, thinking about this spring tart, with all shades of this color. A strawberries custard, then a strawberries mousse and a light lychees mousse: love at first sight.
This tart is created by the combination of 2 recipes: one from E. Knam and the other, from a friend of mine, Isabelle. It is a simple but very tasty: pears pair deliciously with chocolate and pistachios pair deliciously with both. The whole is moist and crunchy, thanks to the frangipane, to the pears, to the shortcrust pastry and thanks to the crumble. In a word, you find all the elements to prepare a truly delicious tart.
It’s sunday……time for baking. A simple almond shell and a light and refreshing red berry “cremoso”. What is a “cremoso”? It is a custard, enriched with flavor and gelatin sheets. Nothing difficult. Everyone likes red berry…..
Tarte bourdaloue….a french popular tart that gets the name from a street in Paris, rue Bourdaloue. A crispy pastry shell, almond filling, similar to frangipane and poached pears. I add almond flakes for an extra texture. I decided as well to use Amaretto liqueur instead of Rhum….. Best to taste the day you prepare, warm or room temperature…..
Last couple of weeks we have been so busy because of our wedding. Only 2 days left, but a tasty and yummy recipe is here for you.
During summertime berries live their magical moment, as they become the ideal ingredients for pies and desserts. Excellent when eaten fresh, and perfect for jams and jellies. During a healthy walk in the woods, I stopped, not to rest, but to pick and taste the deliscious berries purple color, which emerged from the bushes along the way: blackberries. As usual, most desidered things are unreachable. This has happened as well for blackberries. The larger and most juicy ones the were higher. Imagining their flavour, I went beyond the balance, and I fell in the middle of thorns, dragging with me that branch fully of fruits. I got some scratches on the legs, but it has been worthwhile…. and this is the result. Blackberries small tarts: a classic dessert with pastry cream. What do you think about?
