This one is gorgeeeous!
Are you really gonna tell me you're not shocked and impressed at my mad pastry and baking skills with this tart? I mean com' on! It's French inspired, it's thin, it's light and majorly guilt-free, it looks like a pretty spirally flower, and it's so simple to make.
But guess what?! Instead of making my pastry dough from scratch (quick & easy remember?), I bought a box of pre-packaged pastry dough mix, added the necessary water, patted, rolled, and voila! I saved about 30 minutes of pastry prep time. I'm a time-bandit. I use what little of it I have as efficiently as possible, and without compromising on quality. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly. My only note - the vanilla extract can be omitted, but if you have it, use it! Using vanilla extract is a necessary in your baking repertoire! Spend the extra buck on a quality bottle of pure extract, and none of that imitation stuff! Short cuts and substitutions can be made in some places at some times. But there's no excuse for being a cheapo all the time! So enjoy the pleasures of baking and let me know how your tart turns out!
