I made a bunch of tarts today. I saw this genius idea on The Pioneer Woman Cooks and seriously came up with like a million different fruits to use. Okay, maybe not a million. But at least like fifteen!
First up, I followed her exact recipe and used the apples with brown sugar and spread them out on half of a puff pastry sheet. It came out divine. Really, really freaking good.
Next up, I experimented (scary!) with some sliced strawberries and homemade cheesecake filling. To make the cheese cake filling you will need: One 12 oz. tub of cream cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, 1/2 cup of sugar and one egg yolk. Stir together and try not to eat the entire bowl. It's for the tarts! Even thought the PW calls these tarts, I've been calling them danishes all day, so from here on out I will call them danishes.
And let me tell you something. People (boyfriend and my Dad) seriously flipped some shit over these strawberry danishes. They were unbelievable. Made more unbelievable by the fact that it was seriously the easiest thing I've ever done in my entire life. And then I made a pear and almond danish. And then I committed suicide.
And then after we ate these, we made dinner. Sometimes I like to do things in reverse. Just to spice things up a little. To be continued... (kind of like at the end of Back to The Future. That's the power of love!)
