April 19, 2011 – Jeanette of The Whimsical Cupcake chose A Tourtely Apple Tart on pages 306 and 307 of BFMHTY for this weeks TWD bake.
Essentially this is a nutty thin shortbread filled with an apple (and a couple of slightly bruised pears the boys declined to eat) that has been cooked up and had the juices reduced. But is it dry- heavens no. The healthy dollop of butter mixed through the apple mixture prevented that.
Can I say this was the neatest slicing pie/tart I have ever made. My crust even looked neat and tidy- a minor miracle working in the Darwin heat.
The slice above was cut by our own Princess Chloe- my lovely niece assisted by my brother Michael (who informed us she wasn’t a real princess because her tiara was only a toy).
All in all a winner. Great pick! Now check out the TWD blogroll and see what the other bakers thought.
