Tuesdays With Dorie: Chocolate Truffle Tartlets February 21, 2012

This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie is being hosted by Steph, Spike, Jaime and Jessica.  They picked the Chocolate Truffle Tartlets, which are located on pages 382-383 in Baking With Julia.

This recipe makes 6 individual tarts, and since Mike and I have worked our way through my birthday cake pie and a Black Tie Mousse Cake (which I will hopefully post about soon), I didn’t think it would be wise to make a full recipe.  So I decided to make half a recipe which incidentally makes 4 tarts.  I ate one, Mike ate one, one went to my father-in-law, and the last lonely tart is hanging out in the fridge with the last piece of Black Tie Mousse Cake πŸ™‚

This recipe actually wasn’t very hard, it just took some time to make the crust and then chill, roll, chill, and bake.  So I did it in stages while M was taking a nap.  I decided not to put biscotti in mine because I really didn’t want the crunch.  I was completely satisfied with a creamy interior with random bits of chocolate.  I really enjoyed the one tart I had.  It was the perfect size and very rich in chocolately flavor.

Now I give you my last lonely tart, and the puppy that wishes he could have some.

    My puppy would not be so well behaved. Your tart looks delicious.

    Your puppy shows amazing restraint; no one, neither man, nor beast in this house would have left that tart alone. In fact, I made three and left them on the counter to cool while I ran an errand; when I returned I found a small V-shaped piece cut out of one. My teenager had helped herself. Your tart looks thick and luscious. I will definitely try these again with smaller tart pans.

    I agree – my dog would be right on top of it! We really enjoyed this dessert, too.

    Glad your puppy was so well restrained πŸ™‚
