To be a bit more fancy-pants, I decided to caramelize sugar on top of the tart-Dorie mentions this in the original recipe. This is the same technique used in Creme Brulee. I had never used this little culinary blowtorch before, and except for a relatively minor explosion with some spilled butane, the caramelizing wasn't too difficult-just time comsuming. Still, it's neat to try some thing new, though Dave was standing by with the fire extinguisher the whole time as I am known to be VERY clumsy.
Yay! you made it. It looks great!ReplyDelete
Looks great! I wanted to try torching the top, but I got too lazy. Glad your friends enjoyed it!ReplyDelete
HA HA! My husband would be standing by with the fire extinguisher, too, if I used a torch! :)ReplyDelete
Your tart looks great!
Thank you Cristine, Wendy, and Pamela!ReplyDelete
Oh I need a torch, looks great, better late than never, that is my mantra with TWD.ReplyDelete
I was late with mine too. But it was good. Bruleed looks tasty.ReplyDelete
