I know it feels like I have been completely neglecting TWD, but that is not the case. In fact I have made the last three weeks’ recipes, I just haven’t had the time to post about them. So, here I am. Finally. This week’s recipe is the Fold-over Pear Torte chosen by Cakelaw from Laws of the Kitchen. This turned out beautiful. My only problem is that I have been super spacy lately and I accidently left out the sugar. So, it’s not quite as sweet as it should be. Although, I have to admit it still tastes pretty good for not having any sugar and it still turned out just fine. It was just a little bland. It could be more of an appetizer without the sugar than a dessert. Oh well. It smells amazing. I think it is the almond extract. Even though the inside isn’t the prettiest thing and it actually reminds me of something like a quiche, it does taste good.
Now, onto the last two recipes, Double Apple Bundt Cake and Tarte Fine. I have made the Double Apple Bundt Cake about 3 times since I bought Dorie’s book. It is one of my standby recipes since you can almost always get apples. Also, it only gets better with time as the spices get a chance to meld together. Then there is the super simple Tarte Fine. What could be easier than this recipe? I mean it only has puff pastry, apples, an egg, a little sugar and apricot jam if you want it to look glossy. It’s just so easy and good.
See, I have not been as big of a slacker as it might seem. So, I hope you enjoy these recipes and if you would like to make them, please find a copy of Dorie’s book. I hope you like reading it as much as I have. Enjoy!
