|Ready to bake|
Here we go again. This time the Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was the Cranberry Crackle Tart, found on pages 135-137 of Baking Chez Moi.
K was less enthusiastic about this one, at first. "Cranberries, I don't like cranberries very much." "Look at the recipe K." "Meringue, I love meringue." Midway through her first slice "I'm not even done yet and already want more." So clearly, another hit.
As expected, the hardest part of the recipe for K was rolling the crust. I sometimes wonder if I need to buy some Play-doh for her to practice with. Or perhaps I am just not instructing her properly? Any advice more than welcome.
Once the dough was rolled out and baked, K covered it with a perhaps slightly thicker than suggested layer of our homemade raspberry jam. She then made the meringue, which was her favorite part of the project. Once the cranberries were added, she piled the meringue on top of the crust and waited impatiently for it to bake.
