TWD: Soft Chocolate and Raspberry Tart


For this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe, Rachelle of Mommy? I’m Hungry! chose Soft Chocolate and Raspberry Tart.

I made a few modifications to this yummy tart. First off, I halved the recipe, which was perfect for two 4-inch tarts. Since we're not real hip with the trend toward darker chocolate flavor, I used a little extra sugar and I subbed semisweet chocolate for bittersweet. I didn't measure the raspberries, I just added a light layer. I'm guessing the recipe as-written would have given more.


I'm happy to report that this was a hit with the hubby. He's a picky when it comes to sweets and if it's not chocolate chip cookies or chocolate cake he doesn't usually get too excited. He's not a big fan of fruit either, but come to find out... he likes chocolate and raspberries! Yea me! (See, you can still learn something new about a person you've spent the last 6,025 days with).

OK, that's that! If you'd like to find the recipe, please check out Rachelle's blog or find a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book, "Baking, From my Home to Yours".

Good to know if you half the recipe you get 2-4inchers. I even wrote that little tip in my cookbook so I would remember for next time. If I wasn't making this for a dinner party I would have made minis. They are just too cute! Glad your Hubs liked it too.

Your tarts look great! I used bittersweet and semi-sweet in my tart. My hubby wasn't impressed, but I loved it!

Mmm! I want to try the raspberry sometime after seeing everyone's. I used pistachios, but the berries sure look good!
