Tuesdays With Dorie – Tarte Fine

by Jessica on September 28, 2010

Tarte Fine

Tarte Fine… an apple tart with a pretty French name. However, if we were getting specific, it’d be a Tarte Fine aux Pommes. It leaves the oven looking as beautiful as one you’d find in a Parisian patisserie window, and it tastes as delicious as one, too. I can say that from experience since I’ve been lucky enough to visit The City of Lights. I think the reason I love this one so much is because it’s almost identical to my TWD pick, the Parisian Apple Tartlet. Sweetly brushed with an egg wash, then lovingly sprinkled with cinnamon sugar before popping in the oven, this tarte is incredibly quick & easy… and you know just how much I love those kinds of recipes. 🙂

Thank you to Leslie, of Lethally Delicious, for hosting this week’s choice. Check her blog for the how-to on making this beautiful tarte… and don’t forget the other TWD bakers here!

Mmm. I love the cinnamon sugar topping on your apple tarte. It lends the perfect touch to a lovely dessert.

It looks great! I did almost everything wrong and mine was still delicious, so this is definitely a keeper.

What a glorious tart, Jessica! It’s funny, this one reminded me of your pick, too (in fact, I was trying to remember who picked that one as I was making this one). I almost added cinnamon to mine but I will next time. This takes me back to Paris every time I have a piece. Thanks for baking with me this week!
