I am trying to decide if I should join the Tuesdays With Dorie Group. This blogging group bakes something every week from Baking From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan and posts the results on their own blogs. Each blogger chooses one recipe on a rotational basis, and the TWD site posts the recipes for the month. The rules are simple. You must bake and post twice a month, and they ask that you don’t post the actual recipe on your blog. I’m not sure if I need the added pressure, but it could be fun to be part of the group. Let me know what you think.
This week’s recipe was the Parisian Apple Tartlet on page 319, and can I tell you this was a great recipe to start with. It was easy and impressive. The only hard part was finding the all butter puff pastry. I heard that Trader Joe’s has some, but it was sold out when I stopped by, so I went to Whole Foods and got the Dufour puff pastry that Dorie recommends. The Dufour was a bit pricey at $10.99 for one sheet compared to $3.99 from Trader Joe’s. But, the Dufour was fresh tasting and buttery.
I will make this tart again. The results were delicious with very little effort. But I will make one change; I will cut the apples into smaller pieces. I found the large pieces of apple difficult to eat. Check out Baking From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan for some great recipes!
