Hi everyone :)

I just thought I would share pics from my first attempt at tart making. I am taking an amateur pastry and baking class at ICE this summer and thought I could share. This is my first time posting pics so I hope I do it right :wub:

Xander: How exactly do you make cereal?

Buffy: Ah. You put the box near the milk. I saw it on the Food Channel.

Wow! They all look great. I expecially like how you've arranged the fruit in the raspberry tart. Now if only I could taste everything. :)

The pear frangipane looks especially beautiful. Which tart tasted the best? What sort of pan did you use for the tarte tartin? :smile:

aww thanks :wub: Visually that's my favorite too. As to which tasted the best, it's really hard to choose between the tarte tatin and the banana hazelnut. But then again I love love love lemon curd :blink: and french pastry cream... :rolleyes: hopeless! The tarte tatin is awesome because the apples are really caramelized and just so sweet and rich. The banana one is yummy because I'm just a sucker for the banana hazelnut combo and the frangippane is delicious. Next time I would add a layer of chocolate just for that extra over the topness :laugh: The pan for the tarte was a stainless steel 9" ? You make the caramel sauce, cook the apples down in it and then layer the brisee over the top and pop it in the oven. When it comes out you cool it and flip it over so the crust is on the bottom.

Looks like you are a tart-Jedi (or should that be tart-titan?), JeAnneS. I like the look of the pear tart. Did you use a tart dough instead of puff pastry for the tart tatin?

Deadheads are kinda like people who like licorice. Not everybody likes licorice, but people who like licorice, *really* like licorice!
