TWD: Fold-Over Tortes



The recipe was chosen by Cakelaw, an Aussie lawyer and baker. Her blog will have today's recipe in it. I couldn't decide on one filling so I did 2 smaller versions:

1) apple apricot
2) pear cranberry

I also rolled the crust out on s bed of sugar for added sweetness. The rich, smooth custard smell was intoxicating. I nibbled at the bits of custard that seeped out of the spring form pan and baked onto the cookie sheet beneath it.

Yumm. I love the idea of sugared crust! Usually when you make a tart the crust is always a little plain ish. These look great!

What a great idea to roll the crust in sugar. Bet it added a little brown to the crust, too.

Love the two flavors.
