Well, it's my turn to do TWD this week and lucky me, my turn this month ended up falling on my birthday. Yes, today I am one year older. I'm still not quite sure what to think of birthdays at this stage of my life, but I can say that it has been a pretty good day.
Everything came together quickly. I loved that the custard didn't have to be cooked on it's own and that it cooked right along with the rest of the tart. My only complaint came with my peaches. You see, peach season in Utah hits it's peak in September. That is when they are about the best thing you could eat on the planet earth. I made the mistake of buying them at the grocery store, mid-August, from California. They were gross, mealy and unripe so I made another trip to a local fruit stand and got some Brigham City peaches. Although they weren't quite perfectly ripe, they were much better than the alternative.
I have yet to taste this wonderful creation. My sweet hubby is on his way home from work right now, we have a great friend on her way over to watch the kiddos and we can go out to dinner. I think one of the best "presents" is to not cook dinner on my birthday, especially when cooking for kids. I love them dearly but sometimes it is pulling teeth to get them to try new things.
Sorry for the tangent. I will be treating myself to a nice slice when we get home from dinner tonight. If you're interested in the full recipe, head on over to sweet tarte. Until next time, Happy Baking!
