It’s that time of year where everything is red and pink. Hearts, roses boxes full of assorted chocolates and over-sized teddy bears crowd store windows. I don’t really do anything too big for Valentine’s Day. Restaurants are too crowded and most are too pricey. I’d rather stay home, cook a nice dinner, have some wine and relax. Well, this year I will probably be exhausted and need more than just one glass.
Valentine’s Day is the busiest day of the year at my job. The bakery is in high gear, prepping for the day. My schedule next week has me starting at or before 8am through “?“. I literally have a question mark on the schedule – the entire week. It’s basically a work until you can’t work anymore, schedule.
Hopefully you will have time to prepare something nice for the holiday, if you celebrate it. If you don’t, this is still a great tart for any special occasion. Or just because – just because tarts are great too. If you don’t have a tart pan, you can use a pie pan, but it will not be the same shape and the measurements for everything will be different. I recommend a tart pan, though, because it looks so pretty with the fluted edge. Otherwise it’s just a pie. Believe me, nothing is wrong with just a pie, but an Apple Almond Tart makes it sound a little more special.
