The flavors of this tart worked quite well together. In particular, the garlic shoots, with their mild garlic flavor, balanced out the sweet-tartness of the balsamic and the light butteriness of the pastry. Read more about this recipe at Cook & Eat.

For the pie crust, I took a short cut and used Dufour’s frozen puff pastry. You could just cranberries in the filling but I decided to make mine a touch sweeter with the addition of raspberries.

Papaya have golden beauty as well as an silken texture, a seductive perfume and a unique flavor. I don’t know why more desserts don’t use them, but I think this is well worth your attention. This recipe is part of The Barbara Kafka Dessert Anthology.

All the yolks in this custard make it more akin to a creme brulee base than the softer pastry cream traditionally used to fill napoleons. It must be sufficiently chilled before it can be cut into squares. If you don't want to bother with puff pastry (even the store-bought frozen variety), the custard squares would also be perfect with shortbread or other crisp cookies.
