TWD: La Palette's Strawberry Tart



This week's recipe was so delicious and light.  Perfect for summer.  I did alter the garnishing, but stayed true to Dorie's buttery crust and strawberries.  I substituted the strawberry jam for peach-cinnamon.  I also made a lavender simple syrup that I glazed the berries with, instead of just sugar.  I topped off the tarts with a cinnamon-sugar creme fraiche to compliment the peach-cinnamon jam filling.  



Lavender Simple Syrup:

1/3 cup lavender
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Bring ingredients to a boil.  Remove from heat and let rest for 20 minutes.  Strain and save.
