This week’s recipe for TWD was Apricot Raspberry Tart. I had very high expectations for this tart. Apricots and raspberries are two of my favorite fruits. I am even lucky enough to have it be raspberry season here in Wisconsin right now. There is a huge PYO raspberry farm about 2 miles from our house. So, I was able to go pick some raspberries for this recipe.
Overall, the recipe is very easy. I have always been a fan of Dorie’s tart crust recipe. Even with that said though, this recipe was not a winner in our house. The apricots were just too tart in the end and I’m not a huge fan of baked raspberries. The crust was delicious, but the rest was just so-so. Oh well. This is probably the first Dorie recipe that was a true flop for our house. And it wasn’t because the recipe failed, we just weren’t fans of how it turned out.
I did have some extra apricots from the recipe though, and so the next morning I made Deb’s Apricot Breakfast Crisp. Now that was a success for our house. We spooned it over some plain yogurt and gobbled it up for breakfast.
I hope other people enjoyed the recipe more than we did.
