  • kiwi apricot tart

    kim made this one with fresh hardy kiwis from the garden, and apricot preserves from last year's harvest. unbelievably tasty.

    overdo it or don't do it at all!

    Che bella. Un cappolavoro. Do we get more details on the crust and the tart?

    How warm was the oven? I have been asked a couple of times in the past few days how pastry temperatures are different from bread temperatures. What are you seeing?

      i'll have to check with kim--she made this one. in general i usually bake desserts like this around 350. plenty of time for the pizza to settle in, and the dessert pocket in my stomach to open up!

      i still don't have a door for my oven, so i'm sure that affects baking time to a degree.

      i actually think that the typo 00 flour feels quite a bit like pastry flour in texture, but it definitely wants to bake differently. the low temp. probably helps the pie crust become tougher than you would ever want from a pizza crust, while its high oil/butter content keeps it flaky.

        This sounds like a fantastic idea, I've heard of tarts baking at high temperatures, maybe this is another way to bring in tastes from different fruits. I've heard of fig/pear combos, maybe that could be another tart in the future.
