Here is a close up view.
The combination of the sweet creme patisserie and strawberries was just wonderful. I have so much of the creme left, I brought it to office today just to dip the leftover strawberries! Absolutely sinful!
Here is my Swiss Cheese Quiche. The dough was not rolled up the proper way, and I had to do patch work to get it into the flan pan. The end result: cracks on the crust. =<>
Here is a slice of the Quiche. Yes, I think I look like a terrible miser for the thin pathetic filling on the quiche. Well, hear me out. I made the filling with a recipe for a 8 or 9 inch crust. However, as my 8 inch flan pan was in use by the strawberry, I had to use my 10 inch flan pan. And the feather-brained me forgot to adjust the filling accordingly! *Hmphh...*
All in all, I would say that Mrs Child's recipes for the dough and quiche are worth the effort. Oh yes, and also Mr. Pepin's creme patisserie was really yummy. I don't know when I will be making tarts and quiche again, but I have certainly enjoyed this experimental session.
