|Chocolate Truffle Tart|
This recipe is from David Ogonowski. There's even a You Tube video of David appearing with Julia Child baking the pie. The video is helpful as it assured me that I was on the right track with the crust. Its pretty crumbly and it was good to see David's dough very dry and crumbly and how he brought it together.
The recipe calls for 6 individual tart pans. I have tart pans. I know I do. I DO NOT know where they are. After spending almost an hour looking for said pans I gave up and used my 5" x 13" tart pan. I kind of love this pan anyway and I think it makes a beautiful tart, at least it does when I can get it out of the pan and this tart came out perfectly!
A chocolate cookie like crust with a sort of chocolate chess filling and loaded with chopped milk and white chocolate and either chopped biscotti or amaretti. I used amaretti which dissolved into the chocolate filling giving it an almond flavor that was quite nice.
I thought this tart was good but my husband loved it! He said its the best chocolate thing (I believed he was referring to pasty items) he'd ever tasted. He said it was like the best brownie only better. Then he asked for another piece. Enough said.
