Raspberry Tart

Fresh raspberries will be the focus today! Lush, but even better in a buttery tart.

Cannot go wrong with Pate Brisee (shortcrust pastry), which contains 5 easy ingredients flour, salt, sugar, butter and iced water. This pastry needs to be chilled. Once chilled for about an hour, I rolled it out and sprinkled the pastry with sugar.

Particularly enjoyed assembling this tart. Arranged the raspberries in a concentric circle and then folded the edges of the pastry over the filling. The edges of the pastry was brushed with melted butter and more sugar sprinkled on top of the raspberries.

Hooray! Pastry is a lovely golden brown, raspberries are slightly oozing juice, ready to devour once dusted with icing sugar. Thoroughly enjoyed my raspberry tart, ate a few slices warm fresh out of the oven with a drizzle of cream. This is love.

Hope you had a brilliant weekend!! Looking forward to a brand new week.

Peach Galette

Baking day usually calls for chocolate. Decided to do something different and make the most of summer fruits! This time, peach and it will be showcased in a galette! This calls for rich, crisp and crumbly, buttery Pate Brisee (shortcrust pastry). Made the pastry and chilled in the fridge for an hour.

Time to prep the peaches. 1) Slice

2) Soak in brown sugar & lemon! Add a tablespoon of flour. Voila. They are done.

I cannot seem to find a picture of me preparing the pastry or rolling it out! My hands must have been filled with flour. Managed to get a picture of the little peach galettes before they were baked.

Waiting time of 20 minutes and then my mini galettes will be ready.

Enjoyed one warm out of the oven! They definitely taste as good as they looked.

The rest were served cold with store bought caramel ice cream. Ooh la la, I went to bed with a big smile on my face.
