Recipe For Dulce De Leche Tart

"Dulce De Leche Tart"
Dulce De Leche Tart

2014 was a difficult year for so many people around me. On the first day of January last year my sister-in-law Anne called me to tell me that my other sister-in-law. Dawn was terminal and had been given days to live. I sent Dawn a message to tell her we were with her in thought and prayer and the next morning she passed away. My first concern was for Dave’s mum who had now lost two of her children. As Anne flew over to the UK to be with Dawn’s children, Dave and I went to Sedgefield to be with Marguerite. And this signalled how the year would play out. My friend lost her husband, another friend her father, my mom’s sister passed away and each month another friend or family member died. It seemed that death was a constant part of our lives last year. With all the sadness around us, I wanted there to also be sweet moments. I seem to have made more desserts that savoury dishes in 2014 and I think that this trend might continue. This dulce de leche tart was one of the sweetest desserts I made, and it was delicious. Each bite of crisp pastry with soft, sweet custard like topping was perfect. And that is what I am wishing for 2015 – a perfectly sweet year.

  1. It was indeed a tough year for your family Tandy and I truly sympathise. One of my dear friends lost her 29 year old daughter suddenly, and then within three weeks her own mother died. Life is cruel, but then my father always reminded me that we are born to live and then we die. Your tart is very comforting.

  4. What a sad year for you Tandy! Wishing you many blessings this 2015 year. The old saying, it never rains but it pours seems to hold true. Perhaps that why when occasion calls for it, celebration seems all but necessary in life. You have to celebrate the sweet moments or just be sad, because life throws curve balls. This tart looks absolutely splendid and a great way to celebrate everything I am so grateful for in life.

  7. Dear Tandy, I’m so sorry about all the pain and loss you have experienced this year. XO 2014 was a rough one for me in the same way, so much loss, so much death. 🙁 Wishing you healing and much sweetness with your loves in 2015.
