Tuesdays With Dorie 40: Parisian Apple Tartlet


Yes... I am returning with my head hanging in shame. I've been extremely neglectful of my poor little blog! I know it's a cliche, but life has just been really full on lately. I did actually get to make the Cinnamon Squares last week, but had no time to take photos. I quite enjoyed them, but next time I would leave out the coffee. My granules (yes, I probably should have used powder) didn't dissolve properly which wasn't that pleasant! Even though the past few weeks have been really busy, it's actually only going to get worse for me in the next few as I enter exam block. I will really try to keep up blogging though, especially since I missed Daring Bakers last month.


This week's recipe was chosen by Jessica of My Baking Heart, and was perfect for easing me back into blogging. The recipe is incredibly simple, but oh so delicious. It is perfect for those times when you feel like something sweet as a snack. The tartlet is also very quick to make, so also ideal for those times when your other half is hassling you for a dessert (very frequently in my case).

Very nice job on the tartlet and the photos. I know how it feels to have a begfest for "something sweet".

Thanks for the comments everyone. I wish I could say I made the puff pastry but alas, I didn't! It is brand called Careme which has fantastic frozen pastry. It's quite expensive but worth it! Puff pastry is the only one I don't make on a regular basis because 1) I don't use it much and 2) It's so time consuming!
