Loads of redcurrant!
Redcurrant jam – done (not sure why not posted ;))
Redcurrant Ice-Cream – done.
Sooo… time for the tart. Second attempt :)

I honestly need to admit that working with this dough was a bit more difficult than with the previous one. Especially when it came to dough rolling. Well, finger pressing method did the trick so nothing to worry about ;)

The tart itself is something I adore :)
Sour, aah :)
Refreshing, aah :)
You taste it and suddenly, somewhere at the end of your tongue you feel the taste of coconut… Niiice :)

Best served – still warm :)
If you like apple pie straight from the oven, this tart will win your hearts :) Ooopsie, stomachs ;)

Dates & Prunes Tart

POLISH VERSION

I don’t believe in coincidence… But making this tart was coincidence ;)
Of course, the final effect was supposed to be completely different… Luckily, it ended up in a yummy way :) The taste of this tart is really untypical…
Yet, I need to admit I’m posting this recipe mostly because of this delicious tart… The topping is very tasty too, yes, but the bottom… oh my :) I’m not even sure if I should be saying it’s a tart since it’s something in between a tart and puff pastry. And do believe me, I would have never thought I could make puff pastry myself ;P

Next time, I’ll be trying this tart recipe but with a different topping… Well, I think no matter what you use, it can’t be a failure ;)
Oh, and definitely I’ll work on the shape of the tart… as for now it looks… not the way I’d like it to look like ;)

Grasshopper Pie

If I had known this cake was so easy to be made!
I think what is the most time-consuming about this cake is laying the form with the biscuits ;)
Well, this won’t be a secret if I tell you I changed the original recipe… The thing is, I had to, I really had to… There were some extra products on the shelves waiting to be used ;P You know, priority thing ;P What is interesting is that adding amaretti biscuits gave a completely unexpected combination of flavours – a really good combination, that is :) To tell you, now it’s difficult to imagine this cake could taste in a different way!

If you ask yourself why Grasshopper..? Well, interesting thing again. Apparently, long time ago Filipino cuisine was known for adding real insects to this cake! Total craziness, one may say! But… I think I would be willing to have a go… or have a bite, to be more precise ;P

Below you’ll find the recipe the way I found it.
My alterations are given in the brackets.

Oh, no baking! Isn’t it great? :)
