Nothing looks as pretty as a tart sitting out on the table. Those fluted edges do all the work for you, making it look like you REALLY know what you’re doing in the kitchen, even though all you really did was roll out some dough. On the scale of tarts, this one falls in the easy zone. It doesn’t have a ton of ingredients, and it doesn’t require a super fussy arrangement of anything (I’m looking at you, apple rose tart, that has been taking over my pinterest – ain’t nobody got time for that).
If you haven’t heard of a Bakewell tart, well, you don’t live in England, and you aren’t alone. This is a classic English tart that most people in North America haven’t heard of. It’s got layers of almond flavour, a little slick of raspberry jam, a simple sweet glaze drizzled on the top, and is usually served with afternoon tea.
It’s such a great little recipe to keep in your back pocket, something different to pull out the next time you’ve got company over.
Did I mention how easy it was too. Because it’s easy. All you need is a good icing game, and to achieve that, you just need a zip lock bag with a tiny piece of the corner cut off to drizzle a thin stream back and forth across the tart. Drizzle, turn a quarter turn, repeat. There, that’s your icing game.
