TWD: Chocolate Cream Tart
The Tuesday's with Dorie crowd is on it's last leg of a chocolate triple header this week. Kim of Scrumptious Photography chose the Chocolate Cream Tart for us to enjoy.
There was talk on the TWD site that this dessert might be too much of a good thing, but I decided to make it exactly as written anyway.
I'm glad I did. I thought the chocolate tart shell and the chocolate cream filling were both very good. The tart shell was so flaky and tender, it was a perfect counterpoint to the luscious smooth filling. Not that I could eat a huge piece, but it wasn't really an option with my two 4-inch tarts.
Thanks, Kim, my family (and neighbors) really enjoyed the tart!
For the recipe, please check out of Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours" or check out Kim's blog. OK, see you next week!
P.S. I forgot to mention that I used half bittersweet and half semi-sweet chocolate. I continue to resist being turned into a dark chocolate lover :)
