Good Morning...

We had a light dusting of snow last night...pretty..and the sky is what I call a "Painter's Sky" beautiful...pinks and grays and blues, and the black and gray branches, and the white snow with it's many beautiful winter is...and the best part is is all the more "colorful" because the sun is out...a silvery yellow gold making everything look bright, and hopeful.

I put together my Almond Joy Tart, from Baked Explorations, last night..but sorry to camera bites (if I can say that) ..not it's really not that bad it is just an older model ...NOT good for taking indoor (or anything really close)....A good camera is on my NEED TO GET NOW! list...but it is still going to have to wait...

This tart is so good.  The center is a white chocolate ganche whipped and then coconut is folded in to it.  The topping is a combination of milk chocolate and very dark chocolate.  It is supposed to be in individual tart pans.  I didn't have small tart fact my tart pan is packed someplace.  So I made it in a pie dish...The crust is a almond sweet pastry crust.
The next time I make it I am doing the toppings separate, and will either swirl them on top or maybe place them separate...yummy..very good...

I have a busy busy day I am off to get started...

Thanks for stopping by, see you later,



  1. Oh my word, this sounds and look sooooooooo yummy. I really need some. I will definitely have to give this a try. Thanks. Hugs, Marty

  2. Thanks, it is good...the recipe in the book says to make them in 6 individual tart pans, but I know for a fact I would not finish one of them..this pie is a deep dish plate and it can be divided into double that number of servings....very rich...but very good...

  3. Goodness... that looks wonderful!

  4. Thanks,

    It is very creamy..the picture doesn't do it justice. (I had to take about 10 to get this one)

    I think a good thing to bring to someone's house, or have for a few friends for coffee. Because of the whipped cream in the ganache and coconut it doesn't keep very long. It is from Baked Explorations...
