Dagmar's Desserts

A couple weeks ago I managed to make a trip to the local farmer's market and enjoy the diversity present there. I came home with some delicious small potatoes, a blue hubbard squash (that I hope to make holiday pie out of), some acorn squash (which will be featured in another entry), got to sample some fresh goat cheese and brought home half a lovely six-month aged semi-soft round, and these amazing desserts from Dagmar's....

short crust filled with a light almond-vanilla cream and fresh pears.

Brownies with Forelle pears poached in white wine with cinnamon and cloves

These were so very tasty. I loved the spice in the cake and the lightness of the tart. If this is a sample of what they supply, their holiday selections might well be worth a visit to Deep River. Dagmar's Desserts

Maybe this will even inspire me to make a more serious attempt at some fancier baking this winter....

Both desserts were quite delicious, though I think I preferred the tart. I'd definitely like to try some more of Dagmar's creations sometime!

The pastries at Dagmar's is the finast in CT. I've had the opportunity to ejoy thoroughly the 2 featured deserts Birnen-Creme-Kuchen and the Brownies with Forelle pears poached in white wine with cinnamon and cloves. It is one of CT. best kept secrets that must be let out!!! Their staff is first class. Pastry Chef Alison really knows her stuff and is fantastic when it comes to preparing her tasty delectibles. She's extremely knowledgeable and will guide you in choosing the best desert for the occasion. They have a faithful customer for life.......This is a must go to place for deserts!!!
