TWD - Streusel-Topped Rhubarb Lime Tart


I love fruit desserts, and now that it is winter, it is a great excuse to make warm, comforting fruit desserts.

This week's Tuesday with Dorie recipe is one such dessert.  In this case, it is Streusel-Topped Rhubarb Lime Tart.  Rhubarb is tossed with sugar and lime juice, loaded into a pre-baked tart shell, then covered with custard and streusel.  Not bad, eh?



Here's a peek inside this little beauty:



I obviously tried this tart, and I gave some to Tim.  The rest of it went to work, and someone left this note on the empty plate:


BEST. FEEDBACK. EVER.

I took Dorie's advice and reserved the juice drained off the rhubarb, and combined it with mineral water to make this lovely pink drink:

  7. Your tart looks beautiful. I loved this one - rhubarb season might just be my favourite time of year. I mixed the rhubarb syrup with some San Pelligrino and a little leftover lime juice. That was delicious, too.
