Tuesdays with Dorie – La Paletteā€™s Strawberry Tart

June 10, 2008

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, La Palette’s Strawberry Tart, was chosen by Marie of A Year In Oak Cottage.

This tart is very different from most tarts I’ve made in the past. This one was so easy. The only part that you actually have to make is the crust which came together quickly and easily. The other ingredients are strawberry jam and fresh strawberries. How easy is that?

I chose to do fresh cherries because I had a ton leftover from my cherry pie. I did sprinkle a little sugar on the cherries because I wanted them to be juicy. I also used strawberry jam because I was too lazy to go to the store for cherry preserves.

The husband really enjoyed the tart. Me? I’m not a big fan of fresh fruit but I loved, loved, loved the pastry crust with jam on top.

(As a group, us TWDer’s have decided to stop posting Dorie’s recipes since we think everyone should own a copy of her book. Luckily for you though, Dorie has already blogged about this one over on Serious Eats. And now you must go check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie blogs.)
