I have spoken about Gesine Bullock-Prado before. The sister of Sandra Bullock, Gesine has an incredible talent for baking. She has written a few cookbooks, which I own, and in which she artfully combines her mother’s European tradition in baking and her American life. She produces beautiful cakes and tarts, and she teaches through her website, and at King Arthur Baking Company in Vermont.
On her website you can also find a few recipes, and this tart caught my attention. In my crazy weekend of baking – I even tried macarons, which, not surprisingly didn’t come out as expected – I didn’t read the last step attentively, so I forgot to whip the ganache. The tart was still very delicious, but the look was very divergent from her original picture.
As always, I truly enjoy baking tarts, so this want’s an exception. Even my daughter, who doesn’t particularly like the taste of pumpkin, declared that this was delicious. So here it is, my gluten-free version, adapted to one tart instead of 8 small ones.
