I have always been a quick study.
School was always boring because I only needed to be told once and I got it, so I never studied.
Well, maybe a bit in college, but that was because there were a lot of cute boys in the study group.
It was in the 7th grade when I first discovered the library.
The little school that I attended, had a library that was just across the hall from my English class.
I spent a lot of time in that library.
Reading and checking out books.
They weren’t your ordinary classics like Dickens, Austin, Poe or Bronté.
They were Harlequin Romance trash and I devoured every. single. book. they. had.
I got an education that year, but I don’t think it was the kind that my parents had hoped I’d get.
I learned about long hair, and damsels in distress and the beautiful men that rescued them.
I learned about struggling horse ranch owners in the middle of nowhere, and the beautiful men who rescued them.
I learned about sailors and merchants.
I learned about castles and knights, fair maidens, and tarts.
Not the French Pear tart that I made for TWD, but naughty women who were….well, naughty.
Our own illustrious Dorie Greenspan who’s book we bake out of every Tuesday, chose today’s recipe.
I didn’t fiddlefart with this recipe. I made it straight out of the book.
We are having it for dessert this evening, so I will let you know just how great it tastes.
OH…PS…I don’t have a tart pan (Santa didn’t bring me one) so I used the next best thing.
My spring form pan.
It is so quick to put together. So simple, yet so elegant.
Go check out Dories blog, and get this recipe.
Finished with supper, and guests have left. I have to say that this tart was fabulous. Just fabulous. I absolutely will be making this again.
