TWD- Chocolate Tart

This week's TWD is for Chocolate Tartlets- 6 mini tarts. I only have a large tart pan, so I just made one big tart.
The recipe starts out with a chocolate pastry dough for the crust. It says to remove the bottom of the pan, but I didn't do that.
The filling is a made up whipped egg yolks (lots) and sugar folded into melted butter and chocolate.
The recipe calls for chopped biscotti for the filling, but I used cinnamon cookies sprinkled on top instead of folded in the filling batter.
The tart is delicious- it wasn't fudgey like I thought it would be. It was smooth and creamy and was a hit at home and with some friends!
 StephSpikeJaime and Jessica will have the recipe!

  3. Cinnamon cookies is a great add-in. They look so pretty on top. I was also thinking it would taste good with a cookie layer on the bottom of the shell. Your blog header is so cute!

  11. I didn't remove the bottoms of the tart pans either. Didn't understand why you would do that. Love these though--and the 8 egg yolks was one of the biggest reasons I only made 1/4 of the recipe!

  13. Everyone has so many creative variations on this one - things to add in or put on top - could keep me busy for a long time trying them all! Your tart is lovely.
