La Palette's Strawberry Tart a.ka. My First TWD

Tuesdays With Dorie has changed my life! I started this blog as a means of pushing my boundaries in the kitchen, to become more creative in my cooking, and to meet people like me who wile away the hours at their day job dreaming up recipes and gleefully anticipating getting back in the kitchen. TWD has provided me both the outlet and the community I've been looking for and I am so excited to be typing my first post, La Palette's Strawberry Tart.


I was a little concerned with the way the crust cracked when slicing it so I wrote a comment in the P&Q. The feedback was so helpful- imagine my surprise when Dorie herself wrote in!

My strawberries came from the farmers market and were pretty sweet on their own so I only added a light dusting of sugar. I also added creme de cassis and let the berries sit for 15 minutes before serving. Served with a little whipped cream, this tart was the perfect end to a summer meal.
