Fun is defined as trying some new dish in the kitchen. Funner is defined as trying it with friends – even though these friends are MILES away!!! That is what TwitterBakes are all about. Kayte and Phyl decided to make Nick Maglieri’s Old Fashioned Sweet Potato Tart from his newest book – Bake! which they both have copies of and they let me join in.
I have always loved Sweet Potatoes. Eating them instead of a baked potato or making sweet potato fries (baked) or sweet potato bread. So the idea of making a sweet potato tart appealed to me. It is very simple to put together. (Altho’ you will have to buy the book to find out what the recipe is.) At this point don’t think this will be a repeat. The dough was hard to work with. I finally had to press the dough into the pan rather than rolling it out. And the filling was awfully bland. I was rather disappointed. Especially since all the other goodies I have made with Nick’s recipes have been sooooo good.
But I will play with the filling and see in increasing the spices helps. It should.
