So, I think this blog is getting on a dessert kick. Sorry I'm not sorry. I lost a bet recently, and I had to make dessert for a friend, so now you get to read all about it. I turned to my trusty Best Loved Desserts cookbook and decided to try something new and different: fruit tartlets!
This was by far the most complicated thing I have ever made. It took two days, haha. Day 1: First, I made dough from scratch.
Finally, top with berries....
Yum! These were really, really good. Like, Allison, Scott and I devoured all 24 in one sitting while watching New Girl good. I think I baked the dough just a bit too long, and the tartlets were not shaped as nicely as I would have liked, but the custard was delicious, and fresh berries are fantastic. Scott isn't a big dessert person, so the fact that he ate nearly a dozen of these is a testament to the success of the tartlets.
Definitely not the EASIEST thing I've ever made, but, it wasn't terrible. I'd definitely make these again for a special occasion.
