TWD-Parisian Apple Tartlet or Plum, Mango, Apricot, Peach and Pear

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, Parisian Apple Tartlet, was chosen by Jessica, who blogs over at My Baking Heart.
You can find the recipe on Jessica's blog.
This recipe is easy if you use frozen puff pastry. I was just trying to get as many recipes for TWD as I could, out of the way before we moved to Georgia. I used the frozen puff pastry I found at my local grocery store (Pepperidge Farms), even though Dorie suggest using an all-butter puff pastry.
I was in a hurry, so I didn't even think about making the puff pastry from scratch. I did use as many fruits as I could find though. I made the tartlets about an inch smaller than Dorie suggested and made 12- 2 with each kind of fruit. The favorites in our house were those made with peaches and plums. The topping fell off the apple tartlet and it didn't turn out very pretty, so that is why the pic of that one is at the very bottom of this post.
This dessert would be a great ending to a party or a fun dessert to make with young kids. Check out what all the other TWD-ers came up with by going through the TWD Blogroll!

I love the arrangement of your fruits! So many tartlets and so small, it must have been hard not to eat all of them.

You girls are killing me here....making every fruit under the sun. ;) I would have loved to...but I would have been the only person eating them all. They look wonderful!

Marthe said...

You made lots of variations!!! These look really good!!

Jennifer said...

I really must make plum ones now. I did peach and apple and actually liked the peach more than the apple one (and I do love apples) so I bet I would really like plum.
