Question concerning brioche tarts -

Recommended Posts

Just recently have been infatuated with brioche tarts - (ones shaped like bialy)

 

Is it better, in your opinion, to use toppings - jams/custards (placed on the center) - before or after baking?

 

Thank you!

I would place the "topping" on the raw dough, then bake. I have never tried to make brioche tarts as you describe so really cannot give a definite answer. However, I would presume it was done in a similar way to a Danish. Maybe @jmacnaughtan would have an answer for you.

All the pictures online seem to show the topping on the dough then baked.

I'd tend to agree with @JohnT - you'd normally want something to proof the brioche around.  Do you have a picture or recipe of the kind of tart you want to make?

 

It might depend on the topping though - some require very little cooking, so it might be better to put them on after, maybe after removing some of the brioche.
