Season 1 - Episode 7
In this episode, Anna shows viewers the basics on working with a standard in a baker’s kitchen, tender tart dough, more commonly referred to in the baking world as pâte sablée. She begins with a simple recipe for preparing the perfect sweet dough and bakes Empire Cookies. She then advances the technique and uses the sablée dough as the base for her delicious Pumpkin Crème Brûlée Tarts. For a more elegant dessert featuring sablée dough, Anna bakes a classic fruit tart, one that you might find in a bakeshop window, Peach Raspberry Custard Tart. And finally Anna prepares a scrumptious assortment of icebox cookies made with Pâte Sablée dough: Lemon Icebox Rounds, Earl Grey Squares and Chocolate Pinwheels.
