Tarts and pies

Apricot Coconut Mini Crumble Cookies

These are very tasty cookies – buttery, sweet, crumbly, with a distinct coconut flavour and a hint of lemon in the filling. They are sort of a cross between jam tarts, sugar cookies, and crumbles. I spotted the idea in… Continue reading →

Pumpkin Maple Brûlée Tarts

I don’t like pumpkin pie, to put it mildly. I find the basic untweaked pumpkin filling quite horrid, not much better than canned pumpkin itself. I hope I’m not offending anyone. Maybe I am being weird. The pumpkin concentration in… Continue reading →

Coconut Raspberry Tarts

These are probably the last berries of the season (how sad…) They are topping the coconut pastry cream filling and a thin layer of raspberry-white chocolate ganache below. And yes, there’s more coconut in the tart shells, too.

Stilton Cheesecake Tarts with Rhubarb Pink Peppercorn Compote and Walnut Crumble

Before you wrinkle your nose and leave my site, let me quickly tell you that this combination is very, very good. I probably wouldn’t serve it to toddlers; I doubt they will appreciate it. But a more mature audience will… Continue reading →

Bakewell Mini Tarts

Here’s another Daring Bakers’ Challenge. This month it’s a British Bakewell Tart – buttery shortcrust shell filled with jam and frangipane. We were given a complete freedom to choose any jam flavor for the filling. And that’s where I got… Continue reading →

Fresh Berry and Cream Cheese Mousse Phyllo Tartlets

Opening a package of phyllo dough for one project often means another one is following soon (you do have to utilize the leftover before it dries, gets brittle and unusable). In this case, I put to use not just the… Continue reading →

Milk Chocolate and Salted Caramel Tart

There are total of four layers in this tart and I’m not counting the tart crust as a layer. At the very bottom there are honey roasted salted peanuts covered with fleur de sel caramel. Then goes a layer of… Continue reading →

Canadian Butter Tarts

I think I’ve lived in Canada long enough to get an idea what is considered to be a truly Canadian dessert. I won’t be exploring this subject now. It’s all covered here, if you are interested. There are no doubts… Continue reading →

Lemon Bars

These are the lemon bars indeed. I just baked them in a tart pan. And I had my reasons for doing so. When I baked them in a square 9-inch pan lined with foil, I had to trim the edges… Continue reading →

Neapolitan Ricotta and Wheat-Berry Easter Pie (Pastiera Napoletana)

This rustic looking pie, distantly reminiscent to a cheesecake, is an Italian specialty and usually served on Easter. Don’t try to substitute orange-flower water for anything else. There’s no such substitution. And in my opinion, this aromatic fluid is what… Continue reading →

Honey Maple Pecan Tart

More a confection than a pastry; it screams out loud for a double shot of espresso. The tart is seductive and rich. Serve it thinly sliced. If you wish you can substitute all or part of the pecans for walnuts.

Chocolate Ricotta Tart with Pine Nuts

The crust is absolutely perfect, crisp and very tender at the same time, with a distinct pine nut flavor. The filling is creamy and chocolaty (make sure to use a good quality chocolate) with a subtle tanginess from the cheeses…. Continue reading →

Curd Cheese Tart in Oatmeal Crust

What can be simpler? The filling is just the fresh cheese, eggs and a bit of sugar. The crust is buttery and crunchy, and full of nutritious oats. You don’t have to roll the dough, just press it into the… Continue reading →

Fresh Fig and Pistachio Frangipane Tart

Despite the long description this dessert is not difficult to put together. And it can be done in stages over the several days. But the flavor is absolutely amazing and the result is definitely worth the efforts.
