Tarte Tropézienne

Posted on

One of this month’s Tuesdays With Dorie assignments is the Tarte Tropézienne from Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. It’s like a brioche cake with a delicious cream filling, and topped with pearl sugar. It sounds odd, but it’s really nom-worthy. This is supposed to be a beautiful cake, but mine turned out looking very “rustic.”

Jammer Galette

I can describe the Jammer Galette as a gigantic shortbread cookie with jam on top of it, covered with a layer of buttery streusel. This is another Tuesdays with Dorie assignment and the recipe for this is not very different from the cookie-sized Jammers (by Dorie) found on bon apetit.

Chocolate-Covered Toffee Breakups

This week’s assignment for Tuesdays with Dorie is Chocolate-Covered Toffee Breakups. If you’re a fan of Almond Roca buttercrunch, you’ll love these Chocolate-Covered Toffee Breakups. There’s a nice buttery flavor in the crunchy toffee that complements the taste of the toasted almonds and chocolate.
