A little quilty - a little yummy
I'm sure this is a familiar picture about now. I finished clue #4 today and hopefully will have time to do #5 tomorrow afternoon. I think I'm on the home stretch.
I'm anxious to see how it will turn out and I'm ready to continue on with my other projects. It has been fun.
I made Carmelized Butter Tarts today from this recipe. It needs some tweaking. My husband says more crust and less filling. I say too much butter. If you like raisin filled cookies (which I do) then you will really like this. The crust has butter, eggs, vanilla, and lemon zest in it so it's very flavorful. The recipe makes 18 tarts. I don't know what I was thinking - there are only two of us to eat them!
This is the first time I have made a recipe where I weighed everything instead of just using measuring cups. It called for 4 oz. of egg.
The filling is especially good so when I make it again I'll probably just put vanilla and lemon zest in my regular (tried & true) pie filling recipe and use the yummy filling recipe.
The sky was bright and clear Saturday when I took this picture but we now have over a week of inversion status. Makes me not want to go outside at all. That and the 20 degree weather . . .
