IT'S A PARIS TEA TIME

I could also call this post "Boulanger Bernideen takes on  Boulanger Bruno Solques".....





A while back I did a post on the book  THE PATISSERIES OF PARIS 




I was especially drawn to a photo in the book of the
 very free form tarts made at Bruno Solques Boulangerie.....
this would be a bakery we would love to go
 to in Paris.  So here I tried my own rendition
 of his tarts and also here is the recipe
 if you would like to give it a whirl!





For the PASTRY SHELL of your tart you will need 1 2/3 cups of flour, 2/3 cups of powdered sugar, 2/3 cup cut up butter/cold, 1 egg beaten and 1/4 cup of water. (could be less water) I used a 10 x 16 jellyroll pan but when I do this again I will get a rectangular tart pan with removable bottom which is slightly smaller! Roll out the dough on a pastry cloth and unroll it into the pan.




This recipe would be perfect for afternoon tea! 

Here is the lovely filling:
1/2 cup of melted warm butter, 1 cup of sugar and 2 Tb cornstarch.   Mix these together and spread over the dough you have unrolled into the pan. O f course you crimp the edges of the dough  just like a pie. Spread the filling all over and lay the following fruits into this mix:
ALL FRESH FRUITS: 2 pears, peeled and sliced but kept together, 1 lb strawberries, sliced, 6 oz blackberries and 6 oz raspberries ( you could also do apples or blueberries)

Bake on center rack at 375 degrees for 30- 40 minutes.  Let cool before eating although we always dive in early!

Okay, first of all, I want to know what vitamins you take! You're such a busy gal...and then you go and whip up this delicious French Pastry Dessert?! WOW - impressive!

Secondly - was thinking about going on a diet - think I will wait now until after I try your recipe! (SMILES).

At first I thought it was a clafouti, which my French son-in-law makes often. It looks delicious and would be wonderful with tea.

Oh my goodness! This sounds delicious! Thank you Bernideen for the recipe. This would be perfect for a breakfast tart as well. I also loved reading the posts I had missed here and to see your beautiful china. You have the loveliest pieces! I always leave so inspired!
