i'm late and i cheated.....TWD Shame....

No, this has nothing to do with my husband or being pregnant..... we are fine. and I am not.

I've missed two Tuesdays with Dorie baking challenges....being in a dorm room limits the ability to participate in baking challenges. I missed Chocolate Pudding and the Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler. Which is just fine! These are probably the two items I won't make any way...since I still don't like chocolate or Rhubarb..I know, I know..... but I know you (mom) don't like Chocolate either. Are you off Rhubarb too? I mean, can you stand that stuff without sugar?

Now that I am home, I missed yesterday's challenge too! Just tired. So, I made up for it tonight but, I cheated. This week's selection was/is Summer Fruit Gallete....which the other bloggers make look so yummy. It was selected by Michelle in Colorado Springs. Check out her site for the real thing and recipe. I vow to try this again...the real way....

The real recipe uses the same pie crust I made for blueberry pie - which really is wonderful but I cannot have another sweet thing in this house. Pants are not fitting, feel bloated..blah blah blah...

But for today, one day late and my cheater's version......

I took one whole peach (washed and pitted) cut in half and put each half in a ramekin. Baked it for 20 minutes, added a few raspberries and the custard from the original recipe..... baked another 15 minutes. Cooled. Dusted with powdered sugar......

trust me. Cheating is mmm, mmmmmmmm, GOOD.

Love you.

P.s. love the heart shaped ramekins? I know! so much cuteness!
p.s.s. not sure this will help the waistline since I didn't cut the custard recipe down from the original- used all of it! not sad. was good. will take the boys for a walk.


  1. Really good looking dessert. Oh yeah it is time for the elberta peaches from Cali, right? You know as far as the rhubard goes, I would absolutely have a piece or 2 or maybe even 3 of my rhubard custard pie. Next spring. I still admit to doing pecan pie at Christmas time, too. Love Mom

  2. Your cheatin' hearts are adorable... I love the idea of a crustless custard galette. Great job improvising.

  3. Great job improvising! I'm sure leaving out the crust really cut down the calories -- it's a great crust but FULL of butter. Those look so sweet!

  4. Sometimes you just have to do what works for you :)
