Just in time for
Valentine’s Day the Super Bowl lunch.
This week’s Project Pastry Queen challenge was selected by Amanda of Homekeeping Adventures: Silken Chocolate Walnut Tart. As written, it’s a rich chocolate tart with a layer of walnuts hidden inside.
I eliminated the walnuts and replaced the recommended rum and a couple tablespoons of the heavy cream with raspberry liqueur. And then served it with fresh raspberries and sweetened whipped cream.
It was a beautiful, beautiful thing. An intensely beautiful and beautifully intense chocolate tart that was closer in texture to a dense fudgey brownie than a flourless chocolate cake… inside a pie crust.
My 9.5-inch tart pan is smaller than the recommended 10-inch pan so I only made 2/3 of the filling – it was exactly the perfect amount.
It’s totally the rockstar indulgent dessert that you serve at the end of a light lunch to make up for all of the calories that you just didn’t eat.
Head over to Homekeeping Adventures to get the full recipe. And check out how the other PPQ members’ baked up their tarts.
