This post is very special to me because, it is the 500th post and I have achieved it in 18months. So I wanted to prepare a special bake to celebrate. When I started blogging, I saw a recipe at Table for 2 and more. I loved the beautiful snap and bookmarked it. But when I switched computers, the bookmark was gone. Fortunately, I remembered the blog name. So I searched for the recipe and got hold of it after 30minutes. Usually tarts are made with short crust pastry but this tart is made with yeasted dough. As the theme I have chosen for Blogging Marathon#15 is bread baking, I got a great excuse to prepare this tart. The procedure is very interesting and if you are interested in baking fancy breads then this recipe is surely for you.
