Chocolate Cream Tarts

Simply Delicious!

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Kim of Scrumptious Photography. And let me tell you that her photos are to die for, she is definitely gifted....She chose the Chocolate Cream Tart on page 352. The original recipe calls for a chocolate shortbread crust. Which when looking on the comments, I found that others were saying that the crust was a little sweet.

I decided to make another one of Dorie's shortbread crust, just a regular butter one with crushed pecans added. It is super simple to do in the food processor. I then pressed it into these little tart shell pans the I use for small pastry. Plus they make it the perfect size for a kid dessert. The chocolate custard was easy and delicious. It is a must make! To find out the recipe buy the book or check out Kim's blog here.




We give this 5 glasses of milk, for udder goodness!

Your tarts look so elegant with the strawberry on top! I liked the chocolate crust, but these would be great with the nut crust too.
