Tuesdays with Dorie: Soft Chocolate and Raspberry TartMarch 16, 2010 at 1:01 am | Posted in groups, pies & tarts, sweet things, tuesdays with dorie | 25 Comments
For the last five weeks, I’ve had a smile on my face that I haven’t been able to scrub off. You see, I gave notice at work…five weeks’ notice. It’s been a long time coming, but my last day is…tomorrow! I really have only good things to say about my experience at the bakery, but after a year and a half of making cupcakes and brownies, I think it’s time to move on. After a little break, of course. I’m excited to go out West to visit my parents…I haven’t seen them since before I started. I’m excited to have weekend breakfast with my husband…we work opposite schedules, with never a day together. But first things first….I’m excited to nibble on the Soft Chocolate and Raspberry Tarts that Rachelle of Mommy? I’m Hungry! chose for TWD.
Here, I made individual tartlettes…only because I am in love with my little ring molds. The shells are pretty shallow, so I left the berries out of the filling (I didn’t want them poking through the top) and just used them as garnish, along with a little mascarpone. The filling, not quite a straight-up ganache, yet not quite a custard, is baked. It makes a really delicious basic chocolate tart– one that I’m certain could easily be paired with a lot more than just raspberries. Just an FYI: my little guys, sans berries, took under fifteen minutes to bake.
