Tarts from Dutch Desserts

dutch desserts peach tart

Zeer goed!

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.

Stop writing about my favorite foods! Buddhapesto was out at the coop this week!!! Now the tasty cakes! You're mean! :)

You're right, Mel--they are mean. Talking about all of this delicious food during bathing suit season isn't fair.

Do all of your readers a favor, guys: stick to events and news until it's cool enough to hide local-food fat under big sweaters. Thanks.

The co-op carries another wonderful dessert made locally called Baker's Daughter. I picked up some of her brownies one day when Honest Weight was out of Dutch Dessert's tarts. It's hard to choose between the two but I could eat a whole large tart all by myself and never look back. And Marjan is pretty cool to boot.

On the one hand, that looks delicious. But on the other hand, that looks delicious. Gha, what to do.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
