TWD: Chocolate Truffle Tart

Welcome to round 2 of Tuesdays with Dorie, as we bake our way through Baking with Julia.  For this round we are tackling the Chocolate Truffle Tartlettes......or in my case, a Chocolate Truffle Tart.  I didn't have any small tart rings, just one big 10" one.....so a giant super-chocolately tart is what I got!

I made the chocolate tart crust in my food processor and let it chill in the fridge overnight before I rolled it out, baked it, and worked on the filling.  I had a little trouble rolling out the dough without it cracking....if you look closely you can probably still see some cracks, but in the end it did come together and bake beautifully.  The filling has bittersweet chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, and chopped up biscotti, and came out of the oven with a beautiful glossy finish.......the tart is seriously chock-full of yumminess!

The hubby and I each had a small sliver for dessert with some fresh whipped cream.....this is definitely not a dessert that you'll be able to eat a lot of.....it's truly rich and decadent.  That being said......the hubby, who is not a lover of all things chocolate......loved this dessert, and had it not been 10 pm already, probably would have gone back for more!  That's enough for me.....it's a winner!!

For the recipe, please check out our hosts for this round, Jaime at Good Eats and Treats or Jessica at Cookbookhabit, and click here to see all the other baker's results.....Enjoy!!
