As the story goes, Keith and Marjan Beebe met in 1989 while she was visiting from the Netherlands. They fell in love, got married, and started a life together in Kinderhook. That's all pretty great for them. But it's been a good thing for the rest of us, too.
Why? Because Marjan Beebe makes tarts. Really fantastic tarts. They're like pie, but with a denser, sweeter crust -- sort of like a light shortbread. And paired with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, they're a little slice of dessert heaven.
Dutch Desserts tarts come in 11 flavors. We've tried almost every one of them and they've all been great. We do have a few favorites, though: raspberry peach, cherry, chocolate.
The tarts are available at locations around the region, including the Troy Farmers' Market, the Albany State Street market, Eats and Honest Weight.
