Some days you just try to do everything and in the end, you totally screw up! That's what happened to me yesterday. The tartlet looked so easy that I put it off until the end of the day. Furthermore, I had bought the apples specifically for the tart, but saw in the "playing around" section that other fruits could also be used. In my CSA box this past week, I had some gorgeous
prune plums which would be perfect for the tartlet. "The best laid plans of men and mice oft go awry"-which is exactly what happened! My puff pastry didn't puff enough and the plums lost their shape. Maybe cutting the puff pastry in a 4-inch square instead of the circle was my downfall?
Jessica of mybakingheart has beautiful tartlets for you to see. Check out her blog for the recipe from "Baking From My Home to Yours" and also, the TWD blogroll to see some great photos and variations of the Parisian Apple Tartlet.
