How Do You Know?

that you have the SWEETEST husband in the world?

Saturday, it was VERY hot, I was VERY lazy, but we needed groceries. I sent Brad off to Costco with my list. He returned with everything on my list...


AND...

a huge bunch of girasoli and fresh figs! We are both missing Italy, and he thought they would cheer me up.

They DID!

And he got a Marscapone-fig tart!

I took some tart pastry dough out of the freezer and thawed it. My recipe makes enough dough for 4 batches, so I almost always have some. I blind baked a small rectangular tart crust.

For the filling, I used 6 oz. marcapone (room temp), 2 oz. cream cheese (room temp), 1/2 cup sugar, and a teaspoon of vanilla. Beat and spread into tart shell. Top with figs (cut in quarters), and glaze with a spoon of lemonade concentrate.

Easy, luscious looking, and delicious. It tastes like summer in Italy!

What a sweet guy! And that tart looks fantastic. Hope it helped to ease your homesickness a bit.

He's a keeper, Palma!

One day I need to meet this guy - just to check that he is actually for real!

Barb Cabot:

You both are keepers and it's true he is a sweetie. I'm going to make one of your desserts for a party we are going to on Friday in Laguna. The question for me is which one. I'm leaning towards the lemon/lime curd tart but i've made your fruit tart before to rave reviews...your recipes are all winners and this fig one would send Mike over the moon. Thank you for all the recipes you share.

Awwww...how sweet! And the fig tart is gorgeous! What a guy.
