My latest dessert endeavors!
This is a Lavender Blackberry and Raspberry tart! I made the tart dough (no-roll tart dough, how awesome is that?) with almond flour and ground lavender (along with sugar, butter, and an egg yolk) and spread the baked crust with strained, heated raspberry preserves. The filling is mascarpone, heavy cream, orange zest, almond extract, and sugar. Then I arranged the berries on top. It's heavenly.
This is my first Tiramisu. I was surprised at the simplicity of it, but not disappointed. I love mascarpone cheese! I do not, however, love people who pronounce it as though there were an "r" after the first "a" instead of an "s." What is it with those people? Probably the same people who say "nuk-le-ar." It was such a joy trying to locate it in the grocery store, as I am apparently the only person in Florida who understands that it is said they way it is spelled. Sheesh!
