4th of July Fun

Time with family on the 4th, fireworks, and of course food were all a part of the day yesterday.

I got to use my new-to-me cake pedestal (which I love because for tarts it collects the crumbs and of course looks amazing) for my browned butter fruit tart. I was aiming for a red-white-and blue theme but the red plums I bought were NOT ripe so I went a colorfully different direction.

The tart tasted great but also had about 3 sticks of butter between the filling and the crust. I don't think the fruit topping covered the fat content. Certainly a recipe to keep in mind for parties that are not at home and where everyone only gets one piece!
