Chocolate Cream Tart - Tuesdays with Dorie

Food Librarian - Chocolate Cream Tart (Tuesdays with Dorie)

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Kim of Scrumptious Photography picked Chocolate Cream Tart, pages 352 and 353 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

I woke up this morning...contacts completely stuck to my eyes, TV playing some infomercial about a snuggie blanket that can also shape your abs with absolutely no exercise (or money down!), and with the thought, Oh darn [insert a more descriptive word here]! I fell asleep last night before making the Tuesday with Dorie Chocolate Cream Tart!

I raced home from work, used too much math to figure out 1/4 of the recipe, and felt like I should be using my easy bake oven with the tablespoons of ingredients! :)

I love the chocolate cream! So much so that I decided to skip the whipped cream and just make it a chocolate delight!

That's a hlarious line about the snuggly blanket that builds abs of steel. I wonder if it cleans out the colon at the same time?

Oh, how I wish I worked at your library so that I could sample one of these.

These are adorable and from what I've heard from others who made this tart, your version would be all one would need to satisfy the chocoholic in them! I wish I could take a recipe and quarter it. My brain would crack if I tried! LOL
