TWD:LA PALETTE'S STRAWBERRY TARTMarie of A Year In Oak Cottage chose this weeks Tuesday's With Dorie recipe. I'd like to start off by apologizing to Marie for not following the directions, umm, at all. While this is a lovely tart, I completely made this recipe my own for a plethora of reasons. First off, I was away all weekend and didn't have much time to make the sweet dough. Secondly, I was in a frisky mood and thought I'd spice the tart up with the presence of some chocolate. Third, I've wanted to make white chocolate mousse for quite some time now and thought I'd kill 2 birds with one stone. Lastly, the conjoining of strawberries and white chocolate is just too good to pass up.
I took a simple sweet dough strawberry tart and turned it into an oreo-crusted, white chocolate mousse-filled, strawberry-topped pie. Try saying that 5 times fast with no breaths in between.
This tart was good and definitely different from what I, and I'm sure everyone else, is used to. It's a combination of oreos, white chocolate, strawberry jam and strawberries resulting in a summery cool chocolaty treat. Enjoy!
FYI: The TWD'ers have decided to do away with posting Dorie's recipes each week. This group continues to expand and it's as if we are giving away the book's recipes for free. If any/all of these recipes interest you from week to week pick up a copy of Baking: From My Home To Yours. You won't regret it!
