TWD - Parisian Apple Tartlet or "Could I have Two of Those Please"

Jessica of My Baking Heart picked Parisian Apple Tartlet for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie baking adventure. Check out Jessica's blog and get the recipe there.

I have to say, this was one of the easiest, best tasting recipes I have made so far from Dorie's book. Maybe I was just in the mood for a fruit dessert. I could have eaten four of these! Thank you Jessica for a great pick this week! If they serve these on the streets of Paris, I am definitely getting a plane ticket today and fly over there!

My only problem was I felt that I might have made the pastry a little too thin or it might have still been a bit too frozen because it did not rise as much as I had expected it to around the apple. I'm definitely going to be making these again and soon!
We just got back from Connecticut where we witnessed my stepdaughter's high school graduation from Miss Porter's School in Farmington. All the girls looked so cute in their white dresses.


Laura is the cute redhead on the right with the bubble dress!

After the ceremony was over, they went on their daisy walk and then jumped in the fountain and smoked a cigar. It was tradition! The weather did not cooperate that day. Cool and raining. The yankee and I did not have umbrellas and I was wearing a silk dress. Not good planning at all, right? Below are two of Laura's three dogs. Meet Aladdin and Kelly.

The day after graduation was glorious and we drove down to Mystic where they made Mystic Pizza movie. It was very pretty down there. I'm leaving you today with a few photos to enjoy of my trip!

Your tarts look great!

It looks like it was a great graduation, in spite of the rain. The tartlet looks lovely. I haven't made mine yet but I'm planning on having one for dessert this evening.

Well since today is all about planning the rest of my visit here I also planned in the time today for making this apple tartlet and next weeks peach-honey ice cream!!

Ah thanks Peggy for sharing your wonderful variety of photos from the awesome tartlet (which I gobbled down both, oops) to the lovely family photos, Mystic, the water and boats. Wow, makes me want to plan a road trip right now. Do you love it there? Okay, back to the food, I loved the tartlets. So quick and easy and a nice little palm sized treat.

Yours are so pretty, you can't even tell that the pastry didn't rise much. Cute pics - sorry you got stuck in the rain, I hate that!!

Your Parisian Apple Tartlet looks perfect! I think it puffed up very nicely!
Laura looks cute in her bubble dress - too bad the weather didn't cooperate that day.
Mystic looks beautiful and I remember the movie Mystic Pizza - fun!

I love your dogs too.

Thanks so much for baking along with me this week! Thumbs up to Mystic... the movie was written and directed by one of my sorority sisters! ;)

Your tart looks like it turned out great! And your trip looks like it was fun, despite the rain.

TeaLady said...

Lovely tartlet. And, Yes, I would take two, too.

Beautiful pics of Mystic. It is a great place to visit.

Tracey said...

I love Mystic! I haven't been in ages but I need to get down there again soon. Your tartlet looks gorgeous!

MacDuff said...

LOVE Mystic. The salt flats are my fave.

And your stepdaughter is gorgeous, but I can't imagine having all that dog. One dog is more than plenty for me.

Lovely tartlets - nice job.

Jess said...

Lovely tarts - and I did eat more than one, they were that good. Glad you had a good time in CT - it's a nice time of year to be here, especially in the Mystic area. Congrats to your stepdaughter!

Pamela said...

Hey, those pics were taken at the Seaport, weren't' they? I was just going thru my pictures and I have some of the same shots as you! It's lovely there, we just went last summer. Anyway, nice job on the tarts! Could there be any easier recipe than this one??

Cathy said...

I am so glad you enjoyed the tartlets, Peggy - they look perfect! Looks like you had a great trip to CT too - congrats to Laura! Love those shots of Mystic; it's a beautiful town!

The Blonde Duck said...

Congrats on the graduation! I want a tartlet. Or two. Or three. Or four.

CB said...

Lovely tart! and congrats to the graduate. My little brother graduates next week. They grow up so fast. *sniff*

Great looking tartlet! I'm glad you enjoyed your visit and the graduation!

Really have to thaw that puff pastry well lest it render a sharp pain directly into one's butt. Still, it looks like it came out quite well.

PS She is a cute redhead (don't tell my redhead I said that though).

My puff pastry didn't rise much either; and I noticed that a lot of other ppl's looked similar to ours - so it's not your fault! :) I grew up in CT - love it there - and also know ppl who graduated from Miss Porter's (but quite some time ago).

applecrumbles said...

We've been to Mystic a couple of times and it is such a nice place to walk, shop, and eat.
Love the two dogs... of course!
As for the Parisian Apple Tartlet...oh yeah! That looks too good to be good for you. But the apples make it okay, right? ;)

Audrey said...

I grew up in Simsbury, the next town over from Farmington! (OK, two towns over). These tartlets were so good, weren't they! Yours look wonderful - so I'd definitely take two. Please?

pinkstripes said...

Great pictures! Everything looks wonderful.

I'll have to go back and make the tartlets. They sound delicious.

Nancy/n.o.e said...

Lovely photos of your trip and Laura looks so sweet on graduation day! Speaking of sweet - love your little tarts. They were good, weren't they?

Liz said...

I agree--these were amazingly addicting! I could have eaten four myself, as well. Yours looks great!
