Peachy Tart

Really, fussy little recipe from upscale food magazine?
After two and a half hours of constructing this orange juice-laced crust, a jam-liqueur glaze,

this pulverized almond, slowly-thickened cream center . . .

you're really gonna make me drain each and every peach slice on a paper towel then pat it dry?
This peach tart had better taste fine, is all I'm saying.
Mighty, mighty fine.

I spent THIRTY hours preparing an eye of round roast (so, 24 of them were just marinating, but still...) and it was a long run for a short slide.

It still tasted like roast beef.

Don't you hate that, Carpool Queen? When you spend that kind of time, you expect spectacular. This tart? Not so much :(

I just don't so fussy any more.

Your tart is really pretty. I will spend more time on breads or desserts, although I'm not too good with pies or tarts. Maybe I need to do some practicing.

I'm not too good with pies or tarts either, DarcyLee :) I still think you can't beat a good chocolate chip cookie.

Sounds like a lot of work but hopefully it was worth it! It looks fantastic!

Well, I hope it tasted yummy! I have one recipe that is a lot of work and takes two days to make it (as you have to do something the day before) but man, it tastes yummy!

As for decisions, girl, it takes me forever to commit. Amazingly enough I already have a "theme" for the bathroom, but that's because I've been thinking about it for quite awhile.

After all the fuss...the tart sure looks pretty, and hopefully yummie :-)

Thank you for stopping by A Mother's Rewards and chatting a little. All of these peaches make me wish I had stopped at the peach truck and picked some up:) What a fun and lovely blog!

Okay, I gotta know.....was it worth it? Blotting and all?

Dang, just read where you told Carpool Queen not so much. Bummer!
