are you ready for another tuesday with dorie? this week's challenge is being hosted by 4 different participants; steph, spike, jaime and jessica. i know i was raring to go-how could you not be ready for chocolate? since this was a chocolate challenge, i decided to make them for valentines day with my husband and one of our daughters. both of them are fans of chocolate, especially dark chocolate but being a pastry chef, i decided to customize my tart for them. what that means is rather than dark and white chocolate chunks and chopped biscotti being added to the tart, i opted to use dark chocolate, peanut butter cups and peanut brittle.
first, the dough mixes up incredibly fast in the food processor.
rather than 6 small tartlettes, i made one 9" tart
as always, the marbles came out of the closet with a coffee filter to serve as pie weights
for the filling-egg yolks are whipped with sugar to the ribbon stage
the filling in the prepared tart shell before going into the oven
after baking-the large tart took about 25 minutes at 350 to bake
fudgy perfection! it was a huge hit with the husband and daughter-me too!!!
many thanks to this weeks hosts-looking forward to the next challenge. bake on friends and if you dare, bake one and send me a photo-i will post it here! see the tarts from all of the participants here
