You can never go wrong with puff pastry and fruit ( I never attempted to make the puff pastry myself, though.)

is really very easy once you get the hang of it - just like bread making.  I saw Julia Child making it on TV (The French Chef) about 40 years ago and she was really making an awkward mess of it but it didn't seem to bother her in the least.  I was hooked then.   My method is less stressful than hers but it is just as graceful :-)

Oh my, that tart is breathtaking- both look delicious!

for your kind thoughts.  I just love to bake just about anything.  Sadly, my cell phone camera doesn't do them justice.  I also do an apple, ginger and bourbon dried fruits (apricots, raisins and cranberry) tart that I like very much.    It will be posted this week end.  Isn't this site the bomb?

Happy Baking!!
