Today we had Christmas with my mom’s family. Originally it was just going to be us, and two of my aunts, since others were intending to go away/were fighting colds. But then, my aunt and uncle and cousin changed their plans and they came, and my other aunt and uncle and cousin decided to come too, since the colds seemed not too serious. So it was a full house and a fun time, even though a bunch of the family still couldn’t make it.
Last week, my mom had asked me if I wanted to make dessert and I, obviously, said yes. I decided upon this tart, which is red, and thus, Christmas-y. After fighting with the dough and rolling it out three times before I could get it into the tart pan without ripping all over the place, it came together quite nicely. When it became apparent that more people were coming, my aunt said she’d bring pumpkin pie. So now, I have both leftover pie and leftover tart in my fridge. Hooray!
