Leave the store-bought, mass-produced, soggy pies and tarts on the shelf! Now you can wow your diner guests with homemade, perfect-every-time, sweet and scrumptious tarts. The latest cookbook from the esteemed Academia Barilla, Tarts demystifies the oldest dessert in the Italian culinary tradition. The crowd-pleasing sweet tart is known for its simple beauty, a toothsome pastry, and an infinite variety of fillings (fruit jams, fresh fruit with custard, and chocolate). Each beautifully photographed recipe offers essential cooking tips and techniques perfected in Academia Barilla's test kitchens, like how to prepare the ideal dough to achieve a crisp, golden-brown crust. Like all of the books in Academia Barilla's "50 Easy Recipes" series, Tarts is packaged in the featured cuisine's whimsical shape, making it a terrific gift that keeps on giving.
