TWD: Soft Chocolate and Raspberry Tart
For this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe, Rachelle of Mommy? I’m Hungry! chose Soft Chocolate and Raspberry Tart.
I made a few modifications to this yummy tart. First off, I halved the recipe, which was perfect for two 4-inch tarts. Since we're not real hip with the trend toward darker chocolate flavor, I used a little extra sugar and I subbed semisweet chocolate for bittersweet. I didn't measure the raspberries, I just added a light layer. I'm guessing the recipe as-written would have given more.
I'm happy to report that this was a hit with the hubby. He's a picky when it comes to sweets and if it's not chocolate chip cookies or chocolate cake he doesn't usually get too excited. He's not a big fan of fruit either, but come to find out... he likes chocolate and raspberries! Yea me! (See, you can still learn something new about a person you've spent the last 6,025 days with).
OK, that's that! If you'd like to find the recipe, please check out Rachelle's blog or find a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book, "Baking, From my Home to Yours".
