Can I Get A Woop Woop


After the whirwind of baking, eating, and more baking that went down last week, I wasn't so sure I could bring myself to dive into to some fancy smancy dessert but something about this Rosy Poached Pear and Pistachio Tart kept calling my name. Mainly it was the rosy part, as in red wine. I can never resist and opportunity to bake with booze plus, I already had a bottle of Woop Woop Shiraz open- fun to say and fun to drink. I did only go for a third of the recipe, yielding this one lonely yet lovely 4 inch tart.


While I was at it I attempted to bake ahead and make the Cafe Exploding Sticky Disaster, I mean Volcano cookies, but that is a story for another Tuesday.

To see more tarts in action, check out the TWD blogroll.

It looks wonderful! I skipped it, but after reading all the comments, I will definitely make it in the future! I posted Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies instead. ;)

Woop Woop! I can't believe I'm the first one to do that! Anyway...I think your tart is stunning! I love the way it looks like a flower in that shot of the tart top. So pretty. I skipped out this week and now, I'm nervous about those cookies!

Your tiny tart is beautiful! I skipped this recipe but did make a Dorie recipe...Double crusted blueberry pie. Should I be afraid, very afraid, of the volcano cookies??

So pretty! It really was a hard weekend to make a fancy dessert, but luckily it was a good one. Thanks for the warning on the volcano cookies.
