Cooking and Entertaining: Strawberry Rhubarb Tart

Though this tart was served with sweetened, whipped cream in
the class, I served it with vanilla ice cream

A few months ago, I took a spring pie and tart making class at Sur la Table (mentioned in this post).  The other students and I lucked out, because there were only three of us in the class!  In it, we made a Strawberry Rhubarb Tart, an Apple and Ginger Pie with Almond Crumble Topping, a Classic French Tart with Spring Fruits and a Lemon Meringue Pie.  Of course, we learned to make all components of the desserts, including Vanilla Short Crust Dough, Sweet Pie Dough and Vanilla Pastry Cream.  It was a fabulous experience!

I’ve made the Strawberry Rhubarb Tart twice since then-the combination of the tart rhubarb and sweet strawberries and crust are irresistible!
 
the ingredients-I used Cognac in place of brandy

the glaze

Though my pie crust isn't perfect looking, it won't be noticeable,
especially after the tart is plated
