Category : Pastry,
I finally did it! I baked this French Pear Tart! LOL! It's simply delicious i must say. But i do find it a bit sweet for my liking though hence i didn't sprinkle any icing sugar. Maybe i use canned pear (can also use fresh pears) but i think a slice of this with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream is simply heavenly! Next time got to cut down maybe 30g of sugar from the recipe.
I got my recipe from Susan Filson and i am her blog fan. LOL! And Susan in turn got her recipe from Dorie Greenspan..so just visit both their blogs - link provided here. :) I didn't glaze my pears like they did - i did only a tiny bit of glaze cos i was too stingy with putting too much glaze.. hahahaha..
One note is i HATE doing the dough..cos the butter melts so fast in our hot weather!! ARgghhh...! I had to like keep putting the dough back in the fridge every few minutes of handling it otherwise it will melt on my hands! I wish i have air-con in my kitchen!!! (Angie, i remembered what you said..and now i have the same wish!). I think the crust didn't look all that pretty cos i was 'dough-out' - out of dough cos the recipe called for a 9" tart tin and i had only 11" tart tin! So no choice..i was too lazy to make more dough, so i spread out the dough as thinly as possible. Well, it works, but not so pretty sides imo!

About Me: Faithy
Hi, I'm Faithy. Faithy is my alter-ego. I was told back then when internet first started that it was dangerous to put your real name on the web...LOL.. (seriously not kidding!). So it was how this name Faithy came about and has stuck with me ever since. And as a matter of fact, I like it better than my real name..esp when I share the exact same name as my sister.. :D
Anyway, I started my blog initially on vox as a way to remind myself what i have baked and hopefully to see some progress along the way too..:)
