TWD: Another week, another pound of butter...

This Tuesday's tryst with Dorie takes us to a Paris patisserie-lined street corner, where we celebrate the demi-god of French pastry: Pierre Herme.

Mary of Starting from Scratch offered us two options this week: either Dorie's Most Extraordinary French Lemon Cream Tart or her Fresh Orange Cream Tart. Neither recipe is for the faint of heart; each packs in over a pound of butter, a cup and a half of sugar, and several hundred calories per serving.

I chose the orange cream option. Sadly while the cream itself ranks up there as worthy of licking off someone you love, my photography of the finished product leaves a lot to be desired. So if you want to see cream tart food porn, you'll have to head over to the Tuesdays with Dorie blog roll and check out the hundreds of other French tarts.

Next week the egg white replaces butter as we master marshmallows.

In 2007 we celebrated Easter.
