TWD: Chocolate Cream Tart
Wow. Just Wow. I am not a pudding fan, and I tasted this right when it was done. I was...eh. Then I chilled it. I LOVE it. In fact, you had better get it OUT of my house NOW or I will undo all the good healthy eating work I've done up until now...four weeks. I will not let this tart be my undoing.
But if it were, it would be so WORTH it.
I love shortbread, I love chocolate, so what's not to like about a chocolate shortbread tart shell. I actually read the recipe ahead and made the crust early enough so it would be cool when I made the filling.
Again, a custard filling and I've learned my lesson: 4 yolks. Cornstarch. A generous amount of cooking time.
I cooled this quickly, filled the tart and topped it with the touch of whipped cream called for. As I noted, I love this cold better than room temp (I am one of those who likes cold chocolate chip cookies better than warm. Let this be a lesson to me...)
Like other chocolate I have had while writing this post, this goes very nicely with my daily dose of red wine. Drink up. ...I mean EAT UP. You're all invited to my house to finish this before I devour it. PLEASE.
