This recipe makes for a delightful breakfast or brunch item. I almost always adapt recipes to include healthful ingredients I regularly use. For example, in this recipe, I substitute whole wheat pastry flour for all-purpose flour and use maple syrup in place of brown sugar. I also use plain Greek yogurt regularly in place of sour cream and in this case, as a quick alternative to Crème Fraîche (for which there is no substitute!). Enjoy it.

Yes. Even on my days off, I bake. I am receiving a steady supply of fresh figs and I just can’t help myself. This fig tart came together in no time using this recipe for Seasonal Fruit Tarts. I diverged a bit from the recipe, as always. This time, I used a 9-inch tart pan. I […]
