Years ago..maybe 23.. an agent worked in my little town..and he treated us to lunch at one of his listed homes.. His wife had made the desserts.. 2 tarts..and I told him how good they were and he beamed with pride and said his wife was such a great baker..I said I would love those recipes~
A few days later.. this was left at my office..
I thought that was so nice..
I have kept them ever since and many a tart recipe has fallen on my lap..one way or another.. I have 4 favorites and they are handwritten..Well maybe 8:) But 4 are handwritten..Here are 2 of them..
Many agents have come and gone..and it's natural.. but I have never forgotten this gentleman's name and he left almost right after..I hope they are well and happy..
I've just never forgotten this:)
Yesterday I made the second one.. halving the measurements on the right..and using even less of butter..I am not quite sure that 1.5 lbs of flour equal 2 cups;) A small error.It should read 3 cups :)It's a typo ..I am sure..
Just a plain delicious crust .. w/ fresh figs and strawberries.. pistachios.. and sugar..
A tiny bit of sugar.. because I did add a slight brushing of melted white chocolate after the first baking of the crust..to seal the crust from the juices of the ripe fresh fruit~
You can serve with ice cream or whipped cream..I also brushed some melted honey ..a touch..as a glaze after baking..
A small thing this little note almost 25 yrs ago.. but nevertheless.. never forgotten~
