Ercolini Pear Almond Tart

I love tarts. I know I should be making more cookies but I think that tarts are almost...almost like cookies.

A tart consists of a shortcrust pastry, technically is a shortbread cookie, which is topped with a filling. Hahaha...I think I am trying too hard to wiggle myself out of this "cookie and bull" story.

Dark Chocolate Brownies

My kid and I made these dark chocolate brownies. She is in the midst of her preparations for her year end examinations and we decided to make brownies during her break time.

Orange Raspberry Cheesecake

This cheesecake is made up of a base layer of crushed digestive biscuit mixed with orange zest. Cointreau, an orange liquor, is added to the cheese cake layer to further infuse the cake with the orange flavour.

White Nectarine Crumble and Almond Galette

This was baked using the leftover tart dough and frangipane from baking the Autumn Honey Pluots and Almond Tart. The leftover tart dough was not enough to fit a tart ring so I decided to make a free formed tart - a Galette. Rustic looking hey.
