Wrap Up

I made a pear compote with vanilla lately. And it’s truly delicious. I plan to make an other batch, because it’s already all gone. It’s just fine to eat it on a slice of fresh bread with butter or it makes a perfect filling in pastry.

I adapted this recipe for the dough. I kept the proportions but I used more flour (150g vs 110g) and less butter (60g vs 80g). And I cheated, letting the dough to rest for 20 minutes in the freezer for each turn. I used some little brioche pan to make the fancy shape. And I sealed the edge with an egg white and brush the top with the egg yolk.

Paprika really liked them. So I thought maybe you would too…


Pimp My Dessert

Rhubarb Crumble

This is not a cooking post. That’s simply my dessert yesterday for lunch : rhubarb compote, yogurt and crushed almonds + rolled oats previously toasted in the oven with honey.
In other words, it’s just a yogurt, but a customised one.

I really like yogurt. Something that’s always in my fridge.
I like simple, plain, unsweetened yogurt.
But from time to time, I like to have a little bit of fantasy : walnuts+honey for a Greek inspired version; with chocolate shaving for a stracciatella one… and why not a crumble version, for a bit of crunch ?

It reminds me I still have to try to make home-made yogurt…
