Tuesdays With Dorie: Parisian Apple Tartlet June 9, 2009

tuesdayswithdorieThis weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Jessica of My Baking Heart.  She picked Dorie’s Parisian Apple Tartlet which is located on page 319 in Baking: From My Home to Yours.  I was very happy when I saw this recipe because it is simple and currently I could take all the simplicity that I can get.  When I went to make this on monday, I realized that I had just ran out of brown sugar.  I decided to use the old standby substitution of granulated sugar and molasses.

Everything was going fine until the last 5 minutes of baking.  Of course I was in the other room on the computer and when I came into the kitchen it kinda smelled like burning.  With two minutes left on the time the molasses had separated from the sugar and was burning.


I actually caught it just in time before the shells started to get too brown and burn.  I pulled them out of the oven and dusted them with powdered sugar.  The tarts turned out great except for the occasional burnt edge on the bottom, but that was fine.  I just ate the apples off the top and it was fantastic.  Like everything I make for Tuesdays with Dorie, this would have been awesome with ice cream 🙂

    I wanted ice cream with mine so badly, but it was not to be. Your tart looks fine to me.
