Pomegranate Tarts

After apples and honey, pomegranates are  one of the most ubiquitous foods on the Rosh Hashana table.  Because the pomegranate has so many seeds it is a symbol of plenty. On Rosh Hashana we state the hope “that our merits increase like (the seeds of) a pomegranate” in the coming year. I always try to incorporate […]

Cranberry Pear Tart

Whenever I walk into a bakery and see the glistening beauty of a French fruit tart I always think of my mom. Our birthday tradition when I was growing up was to serve breakfast in bed to the person who has having the birthday. We would all pile into the bed an enjoy breakfast together […]

Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Tart

by Shoshana on March 18, 2013 · 14 comments

One of my favorite flavor combinations is raspberry and chocolate. The sweet/tart quality of the raspberry perfectly cuts through richness of the chocolate making for a wonderfully balanced dessert. This is especially important with parve baking. It is easy to make intensely rich parve desserts but it is a bit more difficult to make desserts […]

Meyer Lemon Raspberry Tart

This year I finally made a Passover tart crust that I think is good enough to serve. I have tried various crusts over the years, but they all have tasted too “pesach-y” to me so didn’t want to use them. This year I decided to use some of the ratios and methods I use in […]

Over the past few months I have been playing around in the kitchen trying to perfect my parve pie crust recipe. I have been using different recipe ratios, with different fats and a variety of methods, and am slowly narrowing in on what I think is my perfect pie crust. In my mind the perfect […]

S’more Tart

As I am sure everyone has noticed there has been a shortage of posting around here lately. Things have been a bit hectic to say the least. Between packing up to move and driving cross country (with a two year old) there hasn’t been much time for anything. I am hoping to get back to […]

Easy Apple Tarts

Sometimes it is nice to make a tasty dessert worthy of company with very little effort. I always think that the dessert is as important as the meal, but when there is lots of cooking to be done there simply aren’t endless hours to spend on the dessert. These simple apple tarts are perfect for […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ganache Tarts

by Shoshana on July 12, 2009 · 6 comments

It seems like lately any time I plan a dessert with more than a few steps or components I end up having to change plans at the last minute because I run out of time for anything complicated. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised each time I run short on time, since I have a […]
