TWD: Brioche Plum Tart (revised)

This weeks was chosen by Denise of This was a wonderful pick and I do thank her for it. I decided to do a little playing around and used peaches instead, I also added cinnamon to the sugar.

I went to the grocery store to look for plum jam and when I saw the price of one jar I thought to myself, "Hey, I made peach jam and it's still some left and I have frozen peaches already in the freezer." It really gets my goat that when I go to the grocery store the "fresh" fruit looks so old. Since some of our produce doesn't come in season until next month and later in the fall, it would have defeated my purpose to drive a while to get to the farmer's market(insert sad face here).

All in all the Brioche Peach Tart turned out great and didn't last long at all. I'm not sure if I needed to cook longer than the time in the recipe or if the juices made the dough look undone, but it didn't seem to matter to me nor my girlfriend.

You can see in this picture how it looks sort of undone
After 10 minutes most was gone, and it was only being eaten by 2 people

LOL--I don't think it would have survived very long at our house either! I really like the idea of a brioche tart.
