Tuesdays with Dorie
Baking Chez Moi
Springtime cookies and curd was a lovely dessert to usher in the new season. The base of this parfait dessert is double-butter double-baked petit beuree cookies. This is a cookie I have not heard of before nor have I tasted. It was a sweet, crunchy cookie that had multiple steps to make.
I seem to need a master class on curd and custard as I always make errors. I made a half recipe of the grapefruit curd and mine came out pudding-like not pourable like Dorie states in the recipe. It did not affect the taste of the dish but I never get the consistency correct.
For the strawberries, I did not have Kirsch but I did add a little Chambord which tasted nice.
Overall, it was a tasty dessert but it sure was a lot of work for only three portions. I think I will leave this one for the professionals. To see what others thought head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.
