Tarts, tarts, and more tarts

Gonna try to keep it short and sweet this time. We made 3 different tarts today, I barely got them all done, and only got pictures of 2. This is a long story which I won't be sharing here. My kitchen task today was to run the pastry shop along with another girl. This is quite possibly the worst job ever, and I loathe having to do it again. That's all I'm going to say about that...

So, the 3 tarts we made... The first had a chocolate cream in the bottom with caramel pears on top, which was baked, then finished with apricot glaze all over the top and grilled almonds around the edge. The second tart was similar, but with a white cream instead of chocolate, and sliced apples, baked, then finished with apricot glaze. The third tart is called a Bolduc. It had sliced apples in the bottom, raspberries and pecans sprinkled over the apples, and then a cinnamon sort of pie filling poured on top and baked. Not sure if there was a special finishing process for that one or not (part of the long story, not getting into it...). So, there you go. That's today in a nutshell. Here are the 2 pictures I did get.
