TWD - Creme Brûlée Tart

Finding love is like making creme brûlée. It may take a few tries before you get it right.

This week’s Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Creme Brûlée Tart. As the name suggests, it’s creme brûlée in a tart shell. There are a few berries in the bottom too, although you can’t see them in the photo.

I made two miniature tarts and baked the leftover filling in a ramekin for a standard creme brûlée.

I enjoyed this challenge because I used a kitchen blowtorch for the first time. I was a little scared of it, but I think it went ok. I already had the blowtorch, but had never used it because I had bought it to make Bombe Alaska for a dinner party, only to discover that someone did not like meringue. It was therefore great to finally have a reason to use it.

These little tarts were nice - making one big one would have been fun, but my circumstances at present do not warrant that.

To see what everyone else made this week and what they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

Dear Gaye, first off, I love that quote about making crème brûlée - how fun is that?! Then, of course, I adore your small version Tarte, such a pretty shape and how nice that you finally had the chance to use your small blowtorch!
Well done, my friend!

Congratulations on using the blowtorch for the first time. I am looking forward to this and it sounds like the berries were a good add.

I love that your berries are hidden - such a delicious surprise! And I think your blowtorch did a great job.
