Peach Tart


They didn't have any peaches in the shop so I used nectarines... And the recipe (Burekaboy) said I could put booze in if I wanted... so I did. Only I drank the remainder and ended up getting the recipe all wrong. I put it in the oven and then had to dig it out again to add a load of ingredients I had forgotten, which I suspect is why it didn't come out quite like the image on his blog (see my links section if you want to find the recipe - it was posted in September).
It looks a touch burnt and the whiteish bit's weird... but it's just coz I got drunk and mucked it up.... Go and see the real one on Burekaboy's site.

Add a bit of low fat creme fraiche - mmmmmm.




So in the meantime I bring you: Other works in progress... Christmas here we come!!!









I knitted myself a cornetto case last night... I am just SO cool. No really.

And I honestly thought - why knit a case for your ice cream. No really, I did!

Anndi said...

Someday I shall learn to knit... I hope.

Now I'm off to look for that recipe of yours.

It may not have turned out like the photograph but I bet you had fun making it? :)

Queenie said...

I'm so glad I wasn't on my own there, mind you it would stop the drips of ice-cream running down your arm............

Bond said...

You are getting very talented with those knitting needles

Anndi said...

So how yummy was it?

Travis said...

Well did the dessert at least taste good? I like nectarines better than peaches.

Mrs Successful said...

To the untrained eye, your dessert could resemble bacon and egg pie (no offence meant!), but probably tasted much more scrumptious, TC. xx

Guider - ha... oh well.

Anndi - I LOVE knitting. OK - I love knitting that grey scarf with the shiny silvery bit. Because it's so pretty. There is some knitting that I have found DULL though too.

Ak - I had great fun!

Queenie - I think that the knitted icecream holder has limited potential...

Bond - they say practise makes perfect.

Anndi - pretty darned yummy. mmm..

Trav - It was good. Would have been better but the basis was there.

Mrs S - mmm.. I love bacon. Bacon and egg with nectarines and peach scnapps. I could so enjoy that combination.
