TWD #7


This week's TWD recipe was a choice between an Orange Tart, and a Lemon Tart. Since I knew I'd be bringing it to work, I took a vote, and Orange was chosen (though I was really hoping for lemon!) This recipe was good, but it tasted a bit buttery to me (which isn't shocking because it contained 2 3/4 sticks of butter!) The process seems to be long, but it only took me maybe 30 minutes, not so bad.
I did things a little different from Dorie, I made my tart shell, then my filling, and instead of putting the filling in the fridge and then the next day filling the crust, I just poured it right in to set. I took the leftover filling and put it in the fridge, then I put it in a piping bag the next day, and piped little borders. I also used orange segments to garnish. The crust was delicious!
Overall, I enjoyed this, but I did think it was a bit buttery in texture.

Usually, I get TWD recipes typed up and mailed to me, haven't gotten one yet, so if I don't I'll type it up tonight!

Madam Chow said...

I made the lemon tart, and I thought it was a bit too buttery, until I let it sit for a while, and then the flavors melded. I LOVE your decorations!

Amy said...

Your tart looks delicious! Mine didn't set up as well as yours did. And, I love the idea of piping a border with the leftovers!

I agree on the buttery flavor, I could have used less as well.

Donna said...

I love how you decorated it! I'm going to have to try the orange one day.

Tammy said...

I was horrified by the amount of butter as well, but I think the lemon ended up cutting through the butter a bit - you need to try the lemon as well!

i love the piping! so cute! my cream was too thick to do that - it's so interesting to see how the recipe yielded so many different textures.
