Saturday Snapshot- Summer Tart

Made from a recipe in Dorie Greenspan's Baking From My Home to Yours, I made this tart for a cookout a couple of weeks ago. It was my first attempt making pastry cream and I can safely say it will not be my last!

Edit: Jeff did the decoration!

Wonderful picture! I absolutely love Dorie Greenspan. Her baking book has been my bible in the kitchen. There isn't a single recipe that hasn't turned out great.

That's gorgeous! You're so talented! The strawberries look great, too. Out in the desert, it's really hard to find nice strawberries so I tend to avoid desserts using them, but that sure makes me want to try to find some! And I love the plate!

Based on how that looks, I think you could open your open shop. That thing is almost too gorgeous to eat!
