Isn’t it pretty? Tarts are so pretty. But I’m not going to lie, I’m not the biggest fan of making tarts. The dough is just too finicky–needs to be at the right temperature and frequently likes to be at the wrong temperature….
But that being said, I have a special relationship with tarts. I grabbed the attention of a boy (who has been my boyfriend for a few months short of 2 yrs) by giving him a tart. We made tarts in pastry class and I had eaten my fill for the day and so I gave it to a boy who I thought was kinda cute/nice. Little did I know where that would get me.
This tart–mangos and raspberries on top of homemade vanilla pastry cream– was a gift to him. My gift to him for putting up with me and for sticking with me for so long.
For him, I will make tarts :).
