Puff Pastry and all that is Feuilletée.!

I really had a hard time with self restraint when we worked with puff pastry… Crispy, buttery and all I could ever ask for.1233427_10202030044174415_1966019022_n

These cute little things are called Chausson aux Pommes. They’re similar to an apple turnover. Inside is a sweet apple sauce that nicely compliments its buttery, flakey exterior. Because they’re so small, it’s easy to forget how many you’ve eaten.

Sorry, Sugar Coma…

Geeze, It’s been way too long [without Wifi]. That’s right, I’ve been moved into the new apartment for about 2 months now and only recently got wifi. Technically, it’s not mine but I won’t get into that right now….

Anywhooo~

Let’s talk about my school!

We started baking from the beginning. No time like the present, I suppose.

From Tarte aux Pommes to Tarte au Chocolat, the tartes were endless. By the end of the week, we had so many tartes, we didn’t know what to do with them! Most people gave them to the homeless, neighbors and host families.

Last but not least: My Favorite Tartes

This is Pierre Herme‘s Tarte Vanille: Pâte sablée, white chocolate ganache with vanilla, tender biscuit moistened with vanilla, vanilla-flavoured mascarpone cream.

This next one is Tarte Victoria. Inside the tarte is a pineapples flambéed in rum then mixed into a pastry cream that is to die for! The topping is praline cream combined with a whipped cream. This is what sweet dreams are made of.

And with that, ends our Tart Week(s)!
