Star-Spangled Crème Pâtissière Redux

“every heart beats true for the red, white and blue…”

Last year, Mark made the confection, adapting a “scintillating strawberry” recipe by Jacques Torres, to celebrate Julie and her newly acquired American citizenship. This year it’s to celebrate our country–its goodness and resilience.

“All men are created equal,” originally referred to white men of property, but I’ve always chosen to take the words literally (well, with a bit of stretching to make the “men” part fit all genders). And I know that I’m surrounded by multitudes of Americans who make the same choice.

Happy 4th.

    What a spectacular tart!!!!!

    • Thank you, Joyce. Mark takes that as a big compliment–you live in the land of perfect pastry.
      Hope you’re having a great summer (and will mostly be able to ignore our liar-in-chief’s visit).
