100_2114This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Kim of Scrumptious Photography.  She chose Dorie’s Chocolate Cream Tart located on pages 352-353 in Baking: From My Home to Yours. This month has been full of all things chocolate and when all the members started to post on the message board about the recipe I got a little worried.

I really like chocolate but I think by the end of the month I was getting a little chocolated out.  A lot of members said that the chocolate crust with the chocolate filling was a little over powering.  Because of this I decided to use Dorie’s regular Sweet Tart Dough instead.  Also, because of temptation I decided to only make half of the recipe into mini tarts, which made 4.  To dress them up a little I added some fresh raspberries and whipped cream piping.

I thought that these little tarts were fantastic.  I am really glad that I decided to go with the sweet dough crust, and the raspberries really complimented the flavor of the chocolate.

    Why does everything look cuter when it’s mini? Your tarts look adorable. I did like the chocolate crust, but would really like to try to regular one with the nuts.
