My New Year's Resolutions are (1) to improve the quality of my baked goods that involve yeast and (2) to improve my pastries, cakes, and other desserts.
I have joined an online baking group, Tuesdays with Dorie, which bakes a recipe from Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan each Tuesday. I love, love this book. The group has decided to refrain from posting the recipes so that Dorie Greenspan's book sales do not suffer.
This week, Dorie Greenspan herself chose the French Pear Tart from pp. 368-369. This was my first tart, and I think it was a success, even though I had to use an 8" tart pan when the recipe called for a 9" pan.
