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 🙂
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 Emma 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.
